Children are doing well, bouncing off the walls because they feel healthy and have to stay home today. We’ll be having a couple more of same. We played 2 games of Clue, whereupon I bailed due to the extreme giddiness of said children and the poking of my bottom with a pen every time I turned my back to tick off a weapon or suspect on my clue sheet.
I intended to get the flu shot today, but the clinics here are overwhelmed. After A got home from teaching, I checked the news online and there were over a 1000 people in line. That is about where the clinics were shut off for the day yesterday, so I figured no point in trekking out in the rain.
Yesterday I went to the library to replenish the kids’ stock and return the 50+ they had from our last couple of library ventures. I had forgotten that the library opens late on Thursdays, so I had to amuse myself for a while. I ended up with a pair of running shoes and a bra–which will require a whole new post.
I’m also behind in book reviews (what else is new!). I have The Uncommon Reader, Offshore, and Murder On the Orient Express waiting for my reviews and will have to get to them before I forget what I thought. So for today I’ll say, I liked all three. The first was funny and surprising. The second was evocative and more of a short story than a novel. The third was fun and I wonder if my eleven year old would like it.
