December Disappointments

I've Got Your Christmas Spirit Right Here

In the category of “I No Longer Give a Flying Flip,” I offer this picture of my kitchen table, taken exactly 45 seconds ago.

This is what happens when you’ve had three kids throwing up for 16 of the past 24 hours, a homeschool Christmas party on Friday that prevented you from completing any school work due on Monday, and one non-sick kid who really wanted to make a gingerbread house. Today.

We crammed in a bunch of school tonight because a) I’m mean like that; and b) I really want to be able to take off school early this week (as in being done Wednesday). Promptly after reading 30 minutes of science books to Maddie and Chloe and completing 10 of their activity page questions, Chloe, who hadn’t thrown up in 6 hours, went back for another round, and then Maddie developed a low-grade fever.

What this means is that I crammed school in with them tonight for no particular reason, because they won’t be going to school tomorrow.

I’m still debating whether or not to clear off the table.

    I hope you’re all better soon. We’ve had a cold going around here. It’s not how I would choose to spend Christmas break.
    I’m not brave enough to show a picture of my table. 🙂

    Hi,
    So sorry to hear you all are so sick. My family was down for the count last Christmas with a bad virus, it was awful! I finally have your photos ready and I wanted to mail you a disc. Could you email me your address?
    The pics turned out really great!

    This sickness sounds terrible! I vote that you leave the table like it is and just go do something for yourself—-rest, read a book, take a bubble bath. Things will be better soon!
