...that is, once Grace gets over whatever disease she has.
It's just a virus, but one that causes her fever to shoot up to ONE HUNDRED AND FOUR degrees in the middle of the night (dear God!)
I've already taken her to the doctor to run through the usual suspects... it's not strep, and not an ear infection.
She's getting better, but I've spent the last (how many days now?) with a very sick little girl draped over my shoulder. I have homeschooled while holding her... cooked supper... cleared the dishwasher... gotten the mail... gone to the bathroom (oh my!)... gotten dressed...
You get the point. I basically have not put her down for over four days. (you may be asking, where is her dh in all of this? Unfortunately, he's pulled some muscle in his back, and is unable to carry her for long without major pain. I think he picked a lousy time to do this, but he didn't ask me in advance *grin*)
So I will take advance of this brief rest period and soak in a nice, hot bath.
