monday morning, i woke up and felt sick again. i thought i was over the hump from friday, but i guess it was the wonderful massage on saturday that temporarily cured me. so i emailed my work saying i wouldn't be in, and promptly fell back asleep. when i woke up, chris and the kids were gone. it's odd that i didn't hear them leave, because normally i am a very light sleeper. i guess i needed the sleep...
when i woke up, i texted chris and apologized for not helping with the kids in the morning. he texted back, said it was ok, and wrote, "the first 15 minutes, we all lay in henry's bed and chatted and laughed. then the kids got ready for school. eva wanted to layer since it was so cold out, so she went to school in two pairs of jeans and two shirts." for some reason this text made me both laugh and cry – cry because i missed out on that early morning time with my family, and laugh because my daughter was at school in two pairs of jeans.
that evening, when i picked them up from school, it was cold – like bone chilling cold. of course, maybe part of that was because i was sick, but really, it was cold. we had snow on the ground, ice on the car, and cold in the air. i got to school, and picked up eva first. she had her full snow suit on and the two pairs of jeans, as promised.....but no hat or mittens. i had to laugh, because as awesome as dads are, sometimes they miss the little details like hats and mittens on a cold day. i guess the two pairs of jeans were sufficient in his eyes!
ps. i wore this outfit on saturday, after my massage, when i was feeling better, and it was a whopping 60 degrees out. oh the difference a day can make!
