I showered, pressed my clothes, got dressed, did my hair, put on makeup, and attempted to wake up my daughter. She is sick. Stomach ache. I tend to be a little wary where 7-year-old illnesses are concerned, but normally regret it later when a phone call comes mid-day saying, “Yes, I am actually sick, and now throwing up and I tried to tell you I was sick earlier.”
So I opted to call my office and explain TLK was not feeling well. This was quickly accepted by my boss, which I appreciate greatly.
The rest of the day involved cable tv, crunches (which I’ve been doing for about 5 days), reading the entire Internet and my email, a short walk and talking to my favourite poet (not to be underrated… this is always a happy part of my day).
TLK and I packed up after awhile and went to the grocery, where we picked up milk, bananas, Corn Pops, pasta past its due date (see how often I buy fresh pasta?), American cheese and fresh strawberries, which TLK insisted on (she has finally proven she was not switched in the nursery at birth). We came home and I cooked dinner (pasta.. not the out-of-date stuff, though…and broccoli)
I started reading this site to learn about various things in the UK, mostly the government.
Tomorrow, back to work, I think. TLK seems to be running a little bit of a temperature. 😦
