why i don't need to have children, little transmitters of illness, that's what they are *sigh*

today is my day off. i planned to spend it as i spent yesterday, lounging, with a break to go to the yarn shop to drool, best buy to get a memory upgrade kit for my computer, and the repair shop to sign over my too-expensive-to-fix car. instead i spent it lounging, with periodic breaks to take my nephew's temp. i dropped him off at school, only to return an hour later to pick him up (temp of 99, and stomach ache). well, i guess he wasn't faking 'cause now it's up to 101 and he's vomiting. i am of course sympathetic, i bought him his mother's laptop, i bought him a cold drink, i took his temp. but lines must be drawn. i am not cleaning vomit!!!!! meanwhile, i have called and texted his mom, who is supposed to be on her way home. i don't know how to take care of a sick kid!!! when i'm sick, i call my mom and whine. what am i supposed to do with a sick 15 year old????!!!!!

this has of course given me ample time to work on my 2nd pair of no purl monkeys. i don't know what the yarn is, but it's a pretty shade of blue.

it's also giving me plenty of time to wonder, "am i next????" I just got over bronchitis. I can't get the flu!!!!!! i don't wanna be sick!!!!!
