Yesterday I got a call from school at 9 am that Sophie had a headache and was feeling puny. It wasn't a migraine--no vertigo, but she felt bad enough to go to the nurse and wanted to come home. I picked her up, took her home, and went to work. Mark took the day off yesterday so he was home to stay with her.
Then at 11:30 Mark calls me and says the school called the house & said Luke had a 102 fever and a sore throat. Mark picked him up & brought him home. I left work around 2 pm and Mark went in to the office for a few hours.
Neither of the kids were horribly sick, but it was still a disruption to "normal," which I have been enjoying. I didn't get to run or anything else yesterday afternoon. I didn't feel up to it anyway. The cough is affecting me more than I wish it would.
Today Sophie made it to school. Luke and I stayed home; he feels okay on ibuprofen. I think it's viral and (fingers crossed) not strep. He'll stay home again tomorrow since he still had a fever today at noon, but mom is coming down to stay with him so I can go to work tomorrow.
I could have spent the day eating my way through it. I certainly have been having cravings, thanks to my Sunday excursion into junk food. Instead this afternoon I cracked open my new yoga DVD and did 65 minutes of peaceful sweating. It's a good DVD--not perfect. There are no down dogs or other weight-bearing postures, but there are a lot of standing poses for strong legs and a lot of core work, and lots of breathing and stretching. I could see myself doing it every morning before work and being energized by it.
