My youngest has been home sick for an entire week. Actually, it’s been more than a week now.
Poor thing has missed school and all sporting activities and fun stuff. October marks the beginning of my “let’s go crazy planning stuff to do” part of he year.
I’m so damned happy it’s fall that I just need to be outdoors as much as possible. I garden, play, do more sports, visit gardening shows, flea market, anything that allows me to take in the fresh fall air. This doesn’t stop for me until the summer when the heat becomes unbearable again. Then I imply plan a lot of outdoor water and beach stuff, but my level of enjoyment and tut bliss at being outdoors is not the same.
Ahhh the joy of crispy cool air breeding past my cheeks. I prefer much colder weather than what we get here, but I’ll take anything that isn’t blistering humid heat. The kind that leaves you exhausted from a simple trip to the grocery store.
So my little man has been missing out on this and so have I. Instead we have been stuck inside staring at each other, playing board games, trying to find movies that he hasn’t seen twenty times and trying to keep his crankiness at bay. To make things more challenging, we have had an unexpected bout of rainy weather so he hasn’t even been able to go outside for some fresh healthy air.
I finally broke down today and took him Halloween costume shopping and to eat so he could get out a bit. I had to break for some non rainy time. And luckily, it cleared up long enough for him to get a couple of hours of fresh air time.
