So yesterday, I tried to take good care of myself. I kept stress and the crazies to a minimum. I read almost an entire book in one sitting and I haven't done that since The Kid was born! And today did dawn a little brighter, a little more hopeful despite the fact that The Kid has conjunctivitis and is now running a low grade fever. That, and the fact that his best friend was home sick today makes me think that he may be harboring a viral thing. Will his fever stay low grade? Will it get worse?

That is really, friends, all I have to say today. There was some reading and some writing and a lot of moving piles of things from this side of my desk to the other side of my desk. A lovely weekend stretches before us and we have a birthday bowling party to attend tomorrow depending, of course, on how The Kid is feeling. There's laundry to do and a little television to watch, books to read and food to eat. I enjoy these kind of shapeless weekends. They feel expansive and huge, as if anything is possible.

What's your weekend like?


  1. Hope the Kid fights off the virus.

  2. Thanks. He's still low-grade this morning...
