first one, then the other

My older son went back to school this morning. I did a little happy dance in the hall after he left. It's not that I mind having him around but the kid has to go back out into the world some time, you know?

And then of course, my six year old woke up with a sore throat. He really doesn't seem too sick to me (he had the first part of the H1N1 shot last week) but these days, I prefer to err on the side of caution (we are relieved that there is no coughing, as D. has asthma and things can get scary pretty quickly).

We've been hanging out in our pajamas on the couch. I don't know if this will help me reach my deadlines (or my NaNoWriMo goal) but it's pretty sweet.

Good luck getting through the illnesses! It's been bad here at OSU - lots of students sick. Flexibility and rest are key!

Did hubby take that pic? I have to admit I get annoyed that I have no photos of Amara and I quietly at work, laughing together, existing. Nothing impromptu... so I just wanted to tell you that the photo of you and your son "at work" is pretty great!
