Sick As A Dog

Ezra was exclaiming how lucky Judah has been to stay home from school for so many days because, "almost every time I'm at school, he gets to watch TV."I replied, "Yeah... but on the other hand, he's been sick as a dog."Ezra, always fast on the uptake, "It depends if the dog is sick or not."Yes, yes, it does, I suppose.Judah has been sick for 8 days - missed school 6 days in a row! But he should be headed back tomorrow, just taking it easy, I hope. You can tell he's not himself - he's still not eating much and the child is not only moving slowly,  and reading all the time, but he is QUIET. Yes,  I know, it is hard to imagine, but it is true! Hopefully he won't be sick as a dog for much longer!

Goings On

Winter in the Willamette Valley people. On days like that you wonder why anybody lives anywhere else!
