Suffering for the Children

I'm still congested, headaches, and I think the crud may be turning into bronchitis, but once I can go pick up the Z-pack my doctor called in, perhaps the nastiness will all go away.

But just to let you know how much I really, really suffer for my children -- because we're studying ancient India in history right now. I forced myself to make curry for them last night. Sigh. What a terrible burden.

While I was slaving away at the stove, I said to my son, "You know that Hindus are vegetarians, right?" He replied, "I know, but can we please have some meat in our curry?"


I still remember fondly that the first time I met you, you slaved over a lovely curry for YaYa and me. I'm jealous that I won't be there for dinner tonight, meat or no.

Hmmm, Curmudgeonry Curry ... could be the start of something beautiful. Do you conCUR?

Hope you get to feelin' better. Being sick while taking care of kidlets (let alone hoping that none of them catch the bug too) is no fun.
