Still Typing Today with Company Present

Really present, as in: on my lap, present. Poor munchkin, along with my other poor munchkins who are collectively filling the house with moaning, sore bodies, sore throats, coughs, chills, headaches, temperatures high enough to allow us to save on electricity and yes, vomit. 

What will this day be like (I am resisting adding "I wonder..." with all my might, because you may just get the impression that I am a fan of the Sound of Music and wouldn't that be the sappiest thing you could think of me, ugh). What will the future be (my fingers have taken on a will of their own, this comes from renting, for the first time in six years, a really good record, considering we used to own it, but tragically, in VHS format, and our VHS player bit the dust, The Sound of Muzak, as my theatre teacher in college called it. I agreed with her at the time, but that only lasted as long as Brecht and Sartre held sway over my world view. I wonder. 

I will quit wondering and get back to the business of making tea with honey, distributing cough drops, soothing the weary and the extra grumpy and keeping the dog out of the barf bucket.



  1. Urgh! Misery all around. I feel so sorry for your kids and you. Hope recovery is just around the corner. I don't know if you got my message but I have DVDs if you need to borrow any.

  2. Angela, I hope everybody will be better soon and I wish you enough strength to be there for everybody without getting ill yourself!

  3. Thank you, friends! It's been a heckuva week, but I know most of you have been through this too, so, no complaints (doesn't that sound nice?) I do appreciate the kind thoughts!


Thank you for stopping by. I am always happy to hear from you! Please leave a comment and let me know how you feel about a post or add advice, anecdotes, etc. of your own.
