Day 63 March 4

Josi and I were home all day today and it looks like all day tomorrow too. She is running a fever around 101-102 degrees and has a gnarly cough. The one thing about having a sick child and taking a day off is that I feel fine and could actually get alot accomplished while she sacked out on the couch. One project I have been working on for the last 3 months is curriculum mapping of the language arts program in kindergarten. What a huge undertaking! I did get a lot done today though. It was nice to have about 6 hours to devote to the project. When I'm all finished it will count for 8 graduate level credits so I will be set for recertification when that becomes due. I'm very tired tonight but satisfied with what I accomplished today.


  1. I'm sorry to hear how sick Josi is! I hope she feels better soon! How lucky for you to be able to get something accomplished though, trying to "steal" that time away from them could be hard.

  2. Sadly, I know exactly how you feel! I used to get a tinsy bit excited when one of the girls wasn't quite sick but wasnt' up to school, cause I needed a day off, too! Ah, the good old days... now, taking a sick day means no lunch break for 8 days....

  3. Your project does sound like a lot of work but it sounds very worthwhile. I used to love those days when the kids were not well enough to go to school. It was like a bonus day.
