i've always prided myself on being a hardy person. my immune system is strong and can hold up to most everything. well, not this time. i've been laid up the last couple of days with some evil cocktail including strep. as expected, oliver has fallen victim as well. normally when the kids are sick at home we read and snuggle, and read some more. poor oliver. the tv has been his only entertainment. guess that's what happens when mama's under the weather too.
last week pink eye swept through our house. keith was stricken with two awful crimson eyes and sophia followed suit. but pink eye doesn't take you out. it just takes you out of school. unlike oliver, sophia had a lovely day with mom including lunch, books, lots of fresh air, and journaling.
i haven't filled all my squares yet. it's almost as if by filling them i am committing to those places. that wouldn't be too bad though. sophia was able to just tear through, filling her spaces with every exotic location she's ever read about. and you know what, i believe she'll visit every one of them.
here's to dreaming. and being healthy.
