Chicken Pox

Monday, April 21st, 2008

Look! We got some chicken pox!

Elliot is all scabbed over and no longer contagious and Lauren hasn’t shown nary a spot. We’re on the lookout for them though!

Tomorrow is tax day..

And some of the paperwork I need to complete our taxes is in a file box in Ohio. But that’s not why I’m posting. I’m really posting because I have an update.

Elliot has chicken pox. He’s all spotty. Not a bad case, pretty mild if I had to guess, but we managed to expose a few people in Cleveland and a few more in Chicago. Lauren hasn’t come down with anything yet, but she might.

In other news, there is no other news, which is a good thing. Ryan has trained his replacement for the downtown job, which means he’s usually home for dinner and he’s a lot happier with work. I applied for a job – actually two – both work at home positions, but haven’t heard back from either company. One was a ticket agent for a major airline, the other was grading standardized test essay questions. Both would have been things I could have done a few hours each week from the luxury of my computer.

Lauren cut her hair again, so all our scissors now live on a high shelf in the closet. She’s sporting a “Dorothy Hamil” which most people think is a really cute look for her for spring. And Elliot took his first steps recently but still prefers crawling as his mode of transportation. He’s great at going up steps, but won’t go down, and sits patiently for us to carry him.
