Still not feeling well, Elyse crawled into our bed to take a nap with Jupiter.
(The cats have enjoyed having her home today.)
Elyse and her mommy went to the school skating night at Sparkles last night, and Anna sent me this picture:
Unfortunately, Elyse got sick on the way home with what we think is a stomach bug and won't be going to school today.
It's 11:45, and Elyse and Tessie are sleeping on the sofa. "My Little Pony" is still playing on the TV, as it has been for about five hours now, but I'm not going to stop it...I kind of enjoy it.
Elyse woke up a little after noon, crying and saying her throat hurts. Poor little bear! That's better than throwing up, though, which is what she did several times throughout the night last night.
One final update:
She went back to sleep at about 12:25. I hope she sleeps a good long time; she really needs the rest.
Yesterday Anna forgot to plug in her Leaf (for the first time ever), so today we swapped cars... but I don't think that I can make it home on the remaining charge. So here I am at Walgreens, charging the car, eating a Mounds bar, drinking Dr Pepper, and blogging about it.
For me, at least, the holiday season has begun.
(Yes, I know it's still technically summer. I'm okay with drinking eggnog when it's still technically summer, though I do appreciate the fact that all Kroger had was the autumnal-seeming Pumpkin Eggnog.)
