You know the old quote about "The best-laid plans of mice and men...." right? Well, when children are sick all plans go out the door. My 12-year old, N., has been sick for a couple of days and that has derailed the routine. Fortunately, this happened after our usual Library Day or the earth might have spiralled into the sun. How's that for drama? Unfortunately, he and I had to miss church last night and we hate to do that.
N. isn't the only sick one in the family, though. Nana and Grandad had planned on coming to see us for the weekend but Gdad was felled by a virus, too, so no visit this weekend. We're praying that Gdad will feel better pronto and hoping that they'll get to come soon.
On a lighter note, I got to go to a Pampered Chef party tonight! I enjoyed getting to see real adult-type people and hold face-to-face conversations as opposed to the ones we have on Facebook. Don't get me wrong, I'm loving Facebook; it's a great tool for re-connecting with old friends and chatting with friends that you just didn't get to talk to at church. I find that I'm wasti...ummm...spending...too much time on there, though!
Which reminds me...I need to get back to my Facebook chats :).
