M has been sick as a phlegmy dog for the past three days. Last night poor Small Z woke up at 3am and I almost burnt my hand off on her hot little head. So today there was no work for me, that will come tomorrow when hopefully M continues to get better. Instead we gently handballed Small Z to each other all day and basically did not leave the house.

Thank goodness we don’t have jobs that demand our presence or else. M showed Small Z something this morning and she looked at it in awe and said; “I can’t believe my eyes! As of tonight both of them seem to have improved considerably, so hopefully tomorrow things will be more normal. However, I can feel a tickle in my throat…do all my vitamins count for NOTHING!?
