Super Woman?

I just simultaneously:
  • ate a healthy breakfast
  • gave a fourth grade spelling test
  • directed a first grade spelling worksheet
  • drilled a 5 year old on his addition flash cards
  • encouraged the making of a masterpiece (a picture of a "rocket ship") by a 3 year old
  • remained calm

The key? The baby is napping.

Look what I can do!

Is it Spring yet?

I don't even know how to define it anymore.
There have been running noses,
throwing up,
terms from doctors like flu,
no, bronchitis,
or pneumonia,
more coughing,
and today,
more throwing up and...
a fever.
My kitchen counter
looks like
a pharmacy counter.
It has been weeks,
and weeks,
since I could say we were all healthy,
and still,
no end in sight.
