When It's 15 Below Zero Day After Day......

Everyone gets sick.

Ayla and I were knocked flat Tuesday and Wednesday. Today I woke up feeling well enough to drink coffee! I was excitedly making a grocery list and thinking about the day we were going to have. Take Micah to school, do 2 classes at the Y while Ayla is in tumbling, go to Trader Joe's. Tonight, go to Micah's school for an event in the gym. And then I heard a horrible cough coming from poor Micah as he was walking down the stairs. I got my cell phone and called the school. There was nary a protest which means he feels really bad. Usually this kid will pretend he's fine, because he doesn't want to miss school ever. Now, who can I call on to go get my holds from the library?
