Can I call in sick if I’m already at work?

No? I didn’t think so. It’s such a damn gorgeous day outside. I got to work a little late, and the parking lot is half empty. I think I feel a cold coming on…*cough cough*.

Zed was sick yesterday. He has an upper respiratory infection. Poor thing. He had a pretty high fever too. Chills and everthing. At one point he was even talking in his sleep.

Tomorrow Elle is going to run her first 1K. In translation, it’s 0.621371192 miles. Zed was supposed to run too, but since he’s been sick, I don’t know if he will. I don’t want him getting sicker, especially since it’s respiratory.

We close on the house a week from today. I’m getting more and more excited!

One of my friends did the nicest thing yesterday. I’d told her all about Zed’s great report card and how he’s doing really well in school and with being responsible for himself and everything. Her job was having a charity fund-raiser, and she bid on an item. It was a stand-up cutout of Superman from the new movie. It’s of Superman flying. And she won it, and she gave it to Zed yesterday. We’re going to have to hang it on his ceiling, which is OK, because he’s flying! Thank you Steph! You are such a wonderful friend!

I hope everyone has a great weekend and great weather wherever you are! I mean except in Buffalo. Did you read about the record snowfall? I wish them lots of hot chocolate and cozy fires. The weekend here will be mostly sunny with highs in the 70’s and lows in the 50’s/60’s.
