Chinese food and undivided attention
That is how we got through our Wednesday around here.
At about 2:30 in the afternoon, Princess decided she would like some Chinese food,
she had nothing to eat all day (since her toast came back up at 6 am),and would only drink water.
I ordered the food just in time for the "lunch" prices (which pleased me very much!)
and within a half hour it was at our door.She ate a little, and was fine. Clearly the illness had passed.
We played the Memory Game and checkers and tic tac toe.
Farmer Dad came home and we ate the rest of the Chinese food for dinner.
I passed on going to the Moms Night Out that was scheduled for our play group's Moms.
I miss hanging out with these ladies without our children, but I was too tired, and I
would have just been worried that she would "get sick" again, and unable to relax and enjoy myself.
Princess spent some time with Dad, and some with me, and we watched some
Blue Planet ,which we have been enjoying, and made up some card games of our own.
My sister called to let me know that her boyfriend and his family were all safe after the huge
earthquake in Peru.
Our thoughts are with those who were not so lucky. I was very happy she had called when 15 minutes later we
heard a blurb on the news and Princess asked if that was where her Luis was.
Have I mentioned how much she loves Luis? I told her he had called her Aunt and was safe
and she said "he should come home now that Peru is broken"...indeed. Come home Luis!
We miss you.
She finally went to bed a little after 11:00pm. Way earlier than I expected.
This morning, she woke up at 7:30, feeling fine and ready to go.
I'm feeling tired, but hopefully my coffee will kick in soon.
We were going to go see the" Lizard Guys" at our local library today, but
I think we will pass just in case she has any germs to pass around.
They come there a couple of times a year, so we'll see them next time.
Instead we will tackle some tomatoes and play around the house.
This morning I noticed Harold and the Purple Crayon was going to be on HBO,
so we put that on and Princess watched while drawing on some long white sheets of paper
with a purple crayon. Then we re read the story. This is truly one of her favorite stories
of all time (so far).She never gets to see it on tv , we always see it's going to be on and miss it,
so she was very excited.I was happy to have time for my coffee to brew. ;-)
Here is a picture of Luis and Princess playing soccer on Memorial Day, long after the sun had set.
