SO, half the daycare got Hand, Foot, and Mouth which, if you have a kid who’s had it, is kind of a joke. At least, in our experience. The rash is half-assed and she barely ran a fever. Let me clarify: I am thankful for only these symptoms. I have just only seen this side of it, I guess.
I had to pick her up yesterday and do you know how much work I have to do? HA! I mean, it’s so much there aren’t words to describe it. But I offered the boys to go home with us and what a mistake. I even picked them up lunch but then they were whiny brats all afternoon. I felt worn down after spending the day with that.
Today I am still grading and putting out fires in the department. Like my title suggests, it’s always something.
Whew, I just did a ton of stuff and I feel like my head is spinning. I really did want to post this SOME time today!
I saw my running buddy today. Not someone I run WITH or someone I even know. Just a guy we always see running down the same road. He always runs up Mitchell as we drive down it on the way to school. He always waves and is a polite runner; observes proper etiquette. He also always wears a cotton shirt and must be hating life after a long run.
I pissed off my boss this morning, unintentionally. I know she’d never tell me but I can tell. I am torn between people higher up telling me to do stuff and her wanting to keep it insular. Ugh.
My kids have been really into Pee Wee’s Big Adventure lately. I remember watching it when it was about their age – 6 or 7 – and loving it too. Funny how some things don’t fade away. Also, you can’t go wrong with Tim Burton.
I’m so sorry this post didn’t post in the AM; this has been a crazy day and now that stuff has calmed down, I want to take a nap!
