About Crafted Out

Another day home sick yesterday, and
mommy’s about done. I’ve got a lovely cold myself, and
the last thing I want to do is entertain kids hit hard with cabin
fever. But yesterday was rainy and miserable, so even a walk to the
park was out of the question. Maddie’s cold is full-on now,
with lots of snotty tissues all over the house (“In case I
want to use it again!”) and periodic denial (“I’m
not sick! I need to go to school so I can be calendar helper!
IT’S MY DAY!”) which makes my life just that much more
joyous. And Cora’s RSV seems to have segued smoothly into
Maddie’s cold as well – either that or Cora’s
taking a record amount of time getting over this RSV.

We spent some time making a get-well card
for our friend Elise, who is alas also stricken with RSV. We got
good and gluey and messy, which helped for a while. But just a
while. Numerous books and barely-surpressed mutiny around naptime
filled a few more hours, as did picking at meals and crabbing about
boredom. Throwing them into our Jacuzzi-style tub to play in the
“hot pool” brought us thankfully to bedtime.

How long, O Lord, how long?
