This has been another week of sick kids. It started off with Jorja staying home from the sitter and school on Monday and Tuesday. She was coughing up a lung and had a fever for a few days. We ended up taking her into walk-in on Sunday and the doc there put her on antibiotics. She must be the only kid that doesn't like the banana-flavoured stuff. After the huge fuss she was making, I decided to have a little taste and it was pretty good. It tasted like a banana pudding cup that you can buy - I love those things. Anyway, today the other two are sick. CeCe had a pretty good fever when I picked her up today and Ginny is snotty and coughing. The old snot cold has reared its ugly head again.
I guess it sort of turned out to be a good week for Jorja to be sick, depending on how you look at it. I had a week of holidays left over from last year that I had to use up, so I decided to take them this week to get some stuff done around the house. So I was off anyway, but this was supposed to be my week - the week of Dave. It turned out I was still able to get a lot of stuff done. We are going through a major clean/purge. As soon as CeCe is done with something, it is out the door. At one point, we thought we would have a big garage sale this coming spring, but I don't think there will be anything left, thanks to kijiji. We have sold a lot of stuff on kijiji in the last year. Today I discovered the two extremes of the kijiji shopper. The first asked if I would take $5 less than the advertised price and could I deliver it. I thought it was rather bold to ask for a reduction in price and expect it delivered. Especially today when it was -45 with the wind chill. I said no. The other lives in Warman, works in Hague and is going to drive in from Hague after work tomorrow and said she would pay $5 more than the asking price. I've never seen that before, but I'll take it.
I just spent the last half hour upstairs with CeCe. It looks as though it may be another long, rest-filled sleep in the rocker. Poor thing. If that's the case, I better get 'The Big Bang Theory' watched now while I can. Later.
