Just as predicted, and exactly as needed, our President's Day was low-key. Timmy quietly played with his trains, watched cartoons and occasionally brought me a book to read. Robby enjoyed the day chatting with friends on the computer and playing a variety of video games. After taking a load of old furniture outside to await for the junk removal company, Scott watched television and relaxed for the rest of the day.
Today Robby and Scott will return to school while Timmy
and I continue convalescing at home. I'm hoping to invest a lot of time
tidying up our downstairs family room. Now that the extra bed mattresses
and couches have been removed, I have a relatively clean slate. My goal
is to create a fun playroom for Timmy. I know that I won't get it all
done today, but I'm hoping to take a chunk out of the project.
the weather stays warm we might go outside to play, although right now
I'm protective about giving his little immune system a break. I am not
going to risk his becoming ill
again! Hopefully he won't become bored with our newly imposed
quarantine. In the end, I know that he just needs time to get stronger
and healthier. ;
