I’m finally coming up for air. Sheesh, it’s been a heck of a week.
8 consecutive days of work. All night shifts. Rare glimpses of my family here and there.
I’d heard through the grape vine that Mario was sick. After three days, my hubby took her to the doc. Upper respiratory infection they said. She stayed home from school. She slept. She coughed. She slept. She showered. She slept. The next day, she was home again. And the next. And the next.
By this time I was off so I took her back in. A change of antibiotics and some steroids has finally allowed her to stay awake long enough to eat and try to make up a week’s worth of lost schooling.
Personally I think she was bitten by the show biz bug. For years she’s wanted a main part in a play. Right now, she has a main part in TWO plays. The school’s and the County’s. Between all the practices and all her homework, she was feeling a bit stressed. Perfect chance for a bug to bite. And it got her good.
She missed one performance of the County play. One out of SIX! At least the school play coming up in November has only one performance. I have a feeling these next few weeks will feel easy peasy to her compared to these last few weeks.
I, myself, have a developed a fever this past week. Cardinal Fever!! Such an exciting time in the city right now. The Cardinals are once again in the World Series, and we are pumped! I find myself drinking it all in, reading every story and watching every video. I can’t help but be impressed with how well they are doing as a team. And to have all these young pitchers who can perform under the playoff pressures, blows my mind. Wacha is only a year older than Link, and his poise and focus is amazing. Gawd it’s fun to watch! I can’t wait for Wednesday night. If you’re not doing anything, help cheer us on. Not only is it fun, it’s good for the hotel business! Which means I’ll be working… a lot….
No matter. I’ll see you all again the next time I come for air.
