I Never Get Tired of This

I felt compelled to write at least something today.  After we were all sick this weekend and I barely managed to squeak out yesterday's post (only because it was written on Saturday) let alone a couple of days worth of posts as I often try to do, I don't actually have a backlog this time.  Sure, I have some basic idea outlines I've started over the last few weeks, but eh, those can wait for a rainy day. 

We kept Samantha home from school yesterday so I could let her sleep in.  Samantha never sleeps in.  Ever.  But yesterday she did, and I knew she needed the rest after starting her antibiotics on Sunday.  Actually, Sunday afternoon she took a nearly-4-hour nap, ending at about 5pm, then still managed to go to bed at her usual time and slept through the night.  That's when you know she needs it.  Because Steve was still pretty much incapacitated (he's our resident canary in the coal mine - we often wouldn't even know we were actually sick if it weren't for him getting slammed by strep every time), I worked from home for a half-day then went in to the office once Sammi's in-home aide arrived at 1pm.

Thankfully, we're all better today, and I was thrilled to send Princess back to school.  Walking down the hall to her class, we heard someone call her name behind us.  Her little friends, N. and M. were there, ready with hugs, hands out to walk together. 

I seriously never, ever get tired of this.
