  10 Days Sick

Ten days after I felt the first symptoms, I'm still sick. I'm feeling better than I have been, but I'm definitely not well. I didn't take the painkillers this morning, just to see how I "really" feel, and it wasn't pretty. I went back on them at lunchtime. I watched W from 6:30am-8:30am, and he did NOT ever fall back asleep during that time (I can usually get him to sleep until 7:30 or 8), and was exhausted. I woke T up to take over, and took a nap.

I lay around most of the day, and by mid-afternoon felt like I had the energy to take W to the beach. We were out of the house from about 3-5:30pm, and I was very tired by the time we came home. But it was a good outing. Although the skies have been overcast from time-to-time throughout the day, and around 2:30pm we even got some cool breezes, the heat wave has yet to break. But it's nice at the beach, splashing around in the water keeps us cool.

Plus we saw his friend D, from playgroup, and another boy who we met when baby club was at C's house out in Afton. There are now "programs" of some sort on Wednesday mornings at the local elementary school, and three of the moms from baby club went there yesterday. So I suspect the whole rotating-between-people's-homes thing has been abandoned for the summer. But the programs (I think C said that yesterday was salsa dancing for babies, or something like that) sound like they'll be fun, so I'll go.
