LEAVE US ALONE! Get out of my life! You are not welcome here!
Thank you. That is all.
(Do you think they heard?)
These two sickos are pretty cute, though. Ellen climbed up in the bed where Peter was watching Wimbledon highlights and requested, "Stah Bers." She shares Adam's love of Star Wars clips on YouTube.
They've been sick since Monday -- the latest installment in a series of what seems like way more than our share of infections since mid-winter. This one is probably swine flu, though we didn't have them tested. I think this might be the first time one of my children has had a high fever on five consecutive days. Peter has lost ten pounds. Apparently that can happen when you don't feel like eating anything but popsicles for a week. This is not a diet tip.
The truth is, I've loved having Peter home from work, but next time he takes a week off, I hope it's for something nicer than sick leave.
