Okay, after my entry yesterday my day altered just a bit. The only perk the rest of the day were my visitors. I went on campus to add my class and my youngest tagged along feeling fine, violently stepping on my shadow and cackling. Then on the way home just as quick as you could flip the light switch, he was complaining about not feeling well. "Are you hungry bud?" "Nope. (groan)" he said. We got home he took a sip of water, popped up his Thomas the Tank Engine tent, equipped it with his pillow and blanket and he was out for about an hour. Weird, then I remembered that exactly a week ago my oldest boy had come down with strep throat with similar symptoms and the doctor said just to call if any otherr children come down with it. Mother Sherlock at work. So, good thing, no trip to the Doctor's office. The kids came home from school and oldest daughter wanted to take treats to school for her b-day. So all in the car to Walgreens we go. I gave Jamers his first dose at 4. His brother had a soccer game at 5:30, I had a meeting to go to at 7:00. My husband wouldn't be home until 6:30. So we all went to the soccer game and Jamers seemed fine until.... on the way home from soccer he looked a little... shall I say... GREEN. I raced home faster than I should I admit without incident but I would still be late for my meeting. Popped him in the tub hoping that would snap him out of it and raced to Provo for my meeting. Then during the meeting my cell phone rings. But because I was carrying two cell phones, It took me a second to figure out which phone was ringing. I'm sure everyone was thinking, "How rude she should turn that off." But really I am not one of those cell phone junkies. So I barely know how to operate one, hence the problem. Anyway, it was my husband, "When can you come home James is throwing up." To be really imipertinant I could have said, "Throwing up what?" but that would not be nice so I decided to forgo the rest of the meeting and head home. Poor little (big) guy. He was feeling better by the time I got home. Silver lining... I didn't get barffed on. The night was patchy at best, I felt like I was taking care of a newborn again. Thankfully the antibiotic is kicking in, he ate breakfast and is watching the tellie. I think that there will be a lot of t.v. today while I try to get a little shut eye. In summary I guess I had more than one perk. No doctor's office and I didn't get barffed on can be added to the perk list of the day.
