I had my day all planned out. The logistics were impeccable, right down to the post I planned to write later this evening. A fun recipe featuring baked potatoes and The Scarlet Pimpernel... But I digress.
The itinerary looked something like this:
Start school promptly at 10
Lunch at 12
Leave by 1 so that I can:
Go to the bank and library,
Dr office 1:50
Get glasses adjusted
Go to the State Fair!
Have FUN FUN FUN!
I made it as far as the bank. And was promptly arrested by gagging noises in the back seat. Elle is sick. And she refused the trash can I shoved under her face.
I rescheduled with the Dr. My second cancellation in a week. At least I can see his P A tomorrow. But I do miss Dr Silver!
I went by the library and returned my un-recheckable video and grabbed some Sick Day movies. Winnie the Pooh, Wishbone, Bill Nye the Science Guy, Reading Rainbow and a Nova special about a volcano threatening a city in Africa.
I ran into Walgreens and stocked up on milk, eggs, frozen pizza and theater candy. The poor kids just had corn dogs and funnel cakes and cheese on a stick yanked away from them. It's the least I can do...
Except now Elle is crying, pointing to the Skittles and saying "Candy, cute! I like it!" She doesn't seem very interested in the crackers.
So, God stepped in and re-scheduled the day for me. Time for me to go enjoy some unexpected snuggle time.
p.s. I'll try to post about baked potatoes later. Try to contain your excitement
