The germs are circling. And landing.
I'm trying to think if both boys have been in school a full week yet. It seems that someone is always here fevered, sniffling, sneezing, hacking up a lung, or camped out in the bathroom with some scary gastrointestinal ailment. No H1N1,thank goodness, but I'm nervous. Very nervous.
And so yesterday and today, I am blessed with the presence of not one, but two little people who are apparently sick of being cooped up at home (but not well enough to go back to school) and are driving each other (and me) slightly batty.
Actually, Declan is the only one with a legitimate "you're so sick you're staying home" illness. I pulled Finn from school for most of this week becasue that school is a cesspool right now. Out of 21 kids, only 7 were in Finn's class on Monday. Eight on Tuesday. I can't risk him getting sick because we go to Denver for Finn to take an asthma test tomorrow. If he's sick, they won't test him, which makes sense, but I want to get this done and over with and get some answers before the germs get any worse.
I think we're already over our sick days quota for the year. I should be getting a form letter from the district any day now.
Now, I must run and pack up all of our snow clothes for our journey down the mountain. I wonder where I left my long underwear?
