Lost Time

I know others can relate to the sacred time of the weekend. There are only so many hours and some of that time is spent with baths, meals, and naps (not to mention chores). So when Henry caught the twenty-four hour flu Saturday night and was throwing up all night, I should have known I was up next. My days were numbered (I didn’t forget about who I caught strep from).DSC02700There were love notes from children and beautiful pieces of artwork delivered bedside as I slept most of the day.

After a day apart and feeling like her weekend time was cut short, she insisted on being carried while I made dinner. Joe was at class, and with one arm I wasn’t getting anything done.
