Ezra has a very high fever again today, for the second day in a row, which is heart-breaking on two levels:
1. The poor little guy turns into a total introvert when he is sick- he just lays around on the couch and doesn’t make an audible noise for hours at a time. He reverts to head nodding as his only form of communication and the only time he gets up is to go potty or silently point to the next movie he wants to watch. IT’S QUIET ‘ROUND HERE.
2. He doesn’t get to attend school today, which means mommy will not be able to pick up applications and wander around in thrift stores until her feet are sore. Also, I will not have the joy of blasting my favorite music while I drive from place to place- a past time that I had almost forgotten about entirely until Ezra started school and I realized that I was driving around town (TODDLER-FREE) singing “She’ll Be Coming Around The Mountain When She Comes” while tapping my foot against the clutch pedal to keep time. In my defense- That’s a catchy little number, yeah?
In other news, I bought this yesterday:
But, I am returning it today because it gave my room less of the “Parisian” feel I was hoping for, and more of an “Asian Nascar” vibe that I could really live without.
Chris and I have recently decided to sell our super cool green retro-vintage sofa bed on Craig’s List so that we can replace it with an actual comfortable bed for guests that come and stay with us. I have been looking on eBay for bedding and blankets, and have found some that are just too good not to share.
Man, they will print anything on blankets these days.
Maybe I’ll go a different route and have them make me a king size blanket from this:
Now THERE’S a dragon I could really get comfy with.
