My ds does not play outside much these days. He wants to be in playing the Wii and with his bey blades. I would DIE if it were light from 6am to 9pm. Which it is, in the summer. I utterly HATE summer. I wouldn't mind it so much if it didn't get above, say, 80*, but it gets beastly hot here sometimes.
When I first moved to the WNC mountains, back in '03, we had much more even seasons, and four of them. Now there's like...summer and not-summer. Summer last year was like way above 90* most of the time. The whole time! Months of it!
It used to be two weeks of that, in July or August, and that was it. Not-summer is just that...it hasn't been a proper winter or fall or spring in awhile and YES, I blame global warming.
DS is home from school again today He started coughing and feeling icky/listless while I was in MA, then caregiver kept him home from school on Monday, then on Tuesday the school called me to come get him at like 9:30-- he had a 101* fever. I got him at 10:20 and it was 100*, then diminished at home to nearly normal...then I took him to the Dr at 3:45 just to rule out strep. He ran a 102* there, but he has no strep, no flu. They said he just has "the Asheville Creeping Crud" ,whatever that is. I guess something icky and unnameable is going around.
So I kept him home today, even though his high temp was 99.9, I knew they'd just call for me to come get him if I sent him to school. So I am making him stay in bed all day. It's only 9:30am...I wonder how this is going to play out. Sigh. He doesn't have school on Friday anyway. Grrr. I need some alone time!
M says his...his thingy is feeling better and is working fine. I'm like...you used it?? Without me? Yep, he did. With only a little pain. But unless this stupid house sells in the near future, Caregiver can't come stay with ds until at least the 3rd week in May. Which would be nearly 3mo w/o seeing my sweet M I don't know if I can stand much more of this.
