MLE, my prayers too are with you and yours - and for this system too. May you get the best from it for your son. I am so sorry to hear of the difficulties both with his care and his wellbeing.

MLE, it sounds like you're going through a tough patch. I'll hold you in my prayers too.

Had another horrid run in with my boss. Wish the economy would rebound so I could find another job except I love my job, despise my boss. Grrrrrr.......

Brenna, with improving economical news - maybe if things get better your BOSS could go somewhere else! Leaving you with your job you love, and maybe promotion to their desk. Heh.

I was hoping our new E.D would notice how horrid she is and give her the boot. Don't think that will happen. If only I could answer directly to him rather than her...oh well!

Husband is sick with some dread virus. Nasty fever, body aches and nausea. Could be the same thing the kids had recently but they had normal temperatures. Hoping he feels better in the morning. Long day.

Don't feel well at all tonight. Hurt all day, slight cough. Managed to write only 50 words of Orestes: The High King. At least I've established that Orestes isn't impressed by Helen's looks.

It sounds like the same sickness is going around my school. My friends kid was sick today with the same stuff.
