Things have been really crazy here with work, the conference paper I’m trying to finish up, M’s very successful first half-marathon over the weekend (2:02!), and all the usual activities with the kids…. (I have e-mails waiting from some of you that I swear I’ll get to in the not too distant future…!)
You know that family in the neighborhood—the one with the obsessively anti-bacterial mother and despite that (or perhaps because of it), one or both of the kids is almost always sick? Both of the boys—the girls’ friends—have high fevers with vomiting. We’re pretty sure that the swine flu has come to our little cul-de-sac. I’m just praying the girls don’t catch it too.
