We had a lovely weekend. Friday we visited with friends, and my girlfriend and I played cards. It was more like she played while I picked my nose and contemplated my navel- I lost a lot. Saturday we cleaned house in prepared for a visit from friends from Montana. Jodi and I have been friends for a very long time- I have hazy memories of her in diapers. James and their nine-year-old played, while I ogled at her five-month-old. We flirted shamelessly; James was too busy worshiping his playmate to get jealous.
Today hasn’t been so great. James is running a mild fever, and his butt is exploding. Two other children in his class were sent home today with similar symptoms. I hope that whatever he has goes away soon. He’s being a very good patient thought. We are curled up in bed and watching Iron Man. James loves all the action sequences.
