I totally need a cat. If my husband wasn't pretty deathly allergic I'd do it. Funny conversation from yesterday:
N (not-quite-4), yelling out the back door at some robins: Hey, birds! You can eat the worms in the grass, but don't eat the seeds by the compost. It's a trap!
Me: What if the rats heard you?
N, still yelling: Hey, rats! Plug your ears!
kerc, I hope you're feeling 100% soon. And hooray for a clearing rash.
lofty, I'm glad the weight move is helping. I hope the light and the end of the tunnel keeps getting brighter.
RR- A ton of shoveling, weeding and other garden prep with the kids yesterday. Aching arms. And today, the best run in ages. I wasn't afraid of the hills and managed close to 7k with still a bit in the tank when I got home. I even liked running again.
NRR- A colleague has a sick family member and I may be doing a lot of substitute teaching over the next few weeks. My husband just picked up two courses for a colleague in a very similar situation. We're re-arranging schedules minute by minute, but things always seem to come together. At least that's what I say, as the resident optimist.
