Kira is home sick, with a nasty cough and a bit of a temperature. Normally I would think nothing of it, but I must admit that all the dire reports have me a little more concerned. So I'll keep a closer eye on her than I normally would for a cold. I just called the doctors office, but it's Wednesday and they're closed. I think I'll call later, just in case flu season has them working extra hours. Of course, she's sitting at the other computer, happy as a clam, on PBSKids. In the meantime, I'm planning to sort through all the winter wear-- get gloves and hats and stuff together-- and see what we need in the way of snow pants and boots. I may even do a little Christmas shopping online.
