Emily's been feeling under the weather, and now it seems to have blown up into what appears to be the flu. With mid-terms approaching, because we wouldn't want to make it easy, would we?
Meanwhile, my oldest daughter Charis ended up in the ER, and they think she might be having gall bladder problems. I watched the twins for three hours Monday while she had some tests done, and she was banned to her bedroom and couldn't pick up the kids for a day because she's -- get this -- radioactive.
Babysitting the twins is what has come closest to killing me, so far. Going up on the roof later this week, to patch the new leak, might be what finishes the job.
So that's my latest excuse for not being around much ... my next excuse might be that I have the flu myself, but I've been holding my breath whenever I'm in the house so my guess is I'll expire from lack of oxygen.
