I have a sick child at home today. It completely changed how I thought my day was going to go. Even though she is 13 & I can leave her home when she is sick, I didn't want to. At least not too much. I do go out to get her meds, some movies & comfort food. The necessities for such a day. Otherwise I stayed home and cancelled all else I was going to do. She has strep throat, but it came on so fast and so strong. Her throat was swollen & making it hard to breath a little. Not in an emergency kind of way, like I should have her in the hospital. It just made me keep a watchful eye on her. I'm typically very laid back about germs & sickness. We all get it from time to time (all though I have not been sick in years). It's expected when you have kids, doesn't matter if you have 1 or 100.
Now the real tricky part is to keep the other kids from getting it as well. There isn't a whole lot I can do. Sure I will bring out the disinfectant wipes, do some cleaning, etc, etc. Nothing more than usual. But we are a family that co-habitates very closely. Everyone shares a room. Even though we have 3 bathrooms we all tend to use the same one. We sit down to meals together (not always, but often). We all sit around the living room at night & watch the Simpsons & Wheel of Fortune. Even though we have a 3 story house, we tend to occupy the main level 90% of the time. So not spreading germs can be tricky. We'll see how it goes.
I did get my 1 mile run in this morning. After feeling so great & free yesterday I felt tired & sore today. Could have something to do with being indoors on a treadmill at 5:30 a.m. But I get it done.
Even though this has nothing to do with germs/cooties or sickness or even running I wanted to share the pictures I had of my bread that I made this afternoon. I usually make this when we have some kind of pasta. I was suppose to make lasagna, but got lazy & decided to make baked spaghetti. I love this bread & have been making it for 14 years or so. I don't even look at the recipe anymore, I just throw in what I need from memory. It's truly divine, as anything cheesy is!
