A Typical Saturday

My daughter's temperature (notice I'm not using the word "fever") is down to 98.7.  Yay!  It's been great watching it go down; the decline has been steady for two days now.  She's still coughing like a three-pack-a-day smoker, but she's supposed to be coughing.  She's got stuff in her lungs that she has to get rid of, and I guess you could say that cough of hers in nature's sump pump.  The thing is, she's better.  [Knocks wood.]

I have stuff to do around the house.  My older daughter has homework to do.  My younger daughter has to clean her room and play her violin.  My wife has to go to the office for a while.  It is, in just about every way, a typical Saturday.

Thank goodness.  Right around now typical sounds pretty good.

Good to hear that she's better! Tell her to keep guzzling water - the more hydrated she is, the easier that stuff will come up.

Thanks, I will. We've been pushing her to drink water and juice for days now, with some success. I appreciate the comment and the good wishes.

Huzzah! I hope she will avoid the typical kid thing and try too much too soon.

That's what duct tape is for....

Thanks, Sherwood. We won't let her overdo it.

Oh, that's great news!

"There's nothing as extraordinary as an ordinary day" - unknown: A quote I never appreciated until I reached adulthood and realized how precious those ordinary days are when things start going wrong...

Thanks for the quote, Jen. There is something wonderful about a routine when things are good and life is going along the way you want it to. I suppose that's the difference between a routine and a rut.
