I can't wait until the first week of spring-like weather. I'm going to throw the windows open and flush out all the germs. Every surface will get scrubbed with some industrial strength, un-green cleaner. I need to de-germ the place. Because we keep getting sick this winter.
Ian is running a 102 fever and is puking on beds and sofas. There is a pile of damp sheets in the bathroom. He spent the night in bed with us. I'm waiting for the doctor's office to open, so we can get that pink medicine that he likes so much. It started off as a cold and a sore throat and has been slowing building steam. He's got an infection somewhere.
It's a good thing that Steve took off this week to watch the kids, because there is no way we could have sent him in. This is the first of two week-long breaks this spring. Well, there are actually three weeks that I have to figure out, since Ian and Jonah have different weeks off in April. I have a different spring break from the kids.
We continue to struggle with school breaks and illnesses with in a 2 career family. I really hate to use up all of Steve's vacation time with this stuff. Reason #269 that I'm really, really looking forward to working from home after May.
