... makes Tara a dull girl. I tell you, whoever thinks that being a stay-at-home mom isn't really "work" clearly needs to have their head examined. Truly, I raise my hat to you ladies. I've been home on my own with the kids for 2 days now, and I'm about ready to run naked into oncoming traffic on the off-chance that it could strike up an interesting conversation with another adult.
Maxime has gastroentiritis (I know. Could the timing have possibly been any worse?). He isn't throwing up (thanks be to sunny Jesus for THAT small favour), but everything he eats and drinks just goes right through him, and right quick at that. I couldn't in good conscience send him to daycare, where he could potentially infect the other kids, nor could I send Émilie either (thankfully, she seems fine for now, but she might still be a carrier). I know that I certainly wouldn't appreciate it if any of the other parents dropped off their pestilent child at daycare, so here we all are.
Meanwhile, Phil visited the Louvre (where he also flew a kite) and the Arc de Triomphe, and today he's visiting a pinball museum because it's a statutory holiday over there. Redrum, REDRUM!!!!!
Maxime is down for his nap now, and Émilie's watching Sleeping Beauty. I figured I'd squeeze this post in now because there's no way in H-E- double hockey sticks that I'm going to be up for it tonight.
Dear God, please let Maxime get better today so I can get OUT OF HERE tomorrow!!! I'm going crazy!!!!!!!! Dudes, I really don't think a simple night out on Phil's return is going to cut it at this point... We're talking full on debauchery here, people. ;)
I've almost finished the first Thrum Sock. Thanks Jennifer for referring me to the Harlot's FAQ on thrumming. I must have read it before, but I had completely forgotten about it. I really wish I'd remembered it before I got started, but there's just no way I'm ripping everything out. No way, José! I'll trim the thrums when I'm done this one, and the second sock will be done the "right" way. Chalk it up to the learning curve.
Happy Knitting Everyone! I'm going to go lie on the couch and watch Sleeping Beauty for the umteenth time with my kid.
