Some of Us Never Learn

So Tot is still sick -- ear and upper respiratory infections. AL has also been sick since the holiday. And guess who's sick now?

Guess who still hasn't worked on her syllabus? And is now late with her annual report? And has less than a month to write a well-written article? Remember when I said that being a mom means that you can't leave everything to the last minute because the last minute is when everyone's going to get sick? Well, I may be smart, but I'm not wise. I haven't learned this lesson yet. Luckily, I have the weekend before the syllabi really need to be done. And Kinkos is open 24 hours (somewhere, not near here).

What a dork.

I'm keeping Tot at home because he doesn't look good and because I can, in contrast to how it usually is when I can't stay home unless it's really bad. Also, I'm sick too, though not terribly. It's also super hot; we've been having a terrible humid heat wave.

Tot is trying to say letters to Superwhy right now. He says these sounds in a very staccato way; it's very cute. Poor guy.

Best laid plans, indeed. Hoping you all feel better soon, and that you are able to churn out syllabi and reports and prose with aplomb over the next hours, days and weeks. Can you at least do any work while AT watches Super Why?

Ugh. I hate it when I'm sick when the kid(s) is(are) sick. It's just not fair. Moms get zero days off. I hope everyone is on the mend soon. And good luck getting your work done!!

Oh my gosh, that is so true -- everybody gets sick at the last minute! I hadn't realized how sadly true it is until I read it here. Hope you are feeling better by now.
