We've had a lot more of the "in sickness" than the "in health" stuff going on at my house. All three of us have had various illnesses with varying degrees of severity. The hardest hit has been Drama Teen. In the space of three weeks she's had the flu that knocked her flat. She had the sinus crud last weekend that resulted in her completely losing her voice on Sunday. Monday morning, her face was so swollen and sore that she begged to stay home from school. So off we went to the doctor who proclaimed that yes, DT did indeed have a sinus infection. But in a case of adding insult to injury, DT also had pink eye (Something we are pretty sure she picked up after being loved on by all the pre-K kids at school who missed her when she was out with the flu).
She's been listless and tired for most of the last few weeks. Or at least she was until Tuesday night. She wandered down from her bedroom after being home all day to realize it was snowing. She couldn't find her coat and fasten her boots fast enough. "Mom where's my camera? Oh never mind, I found it." Then she was out the door. I followed to find her outside giggling, laughing, and
quickly being covered in snow.
The snow was coming down pretty quickly, coating the ground
and the rose bushes. This was the liveliest I'd seen DT in weeks. She snapped a few shots, then being the ever practical mom, I made her come in since she was out there without her gloves or a hat. She raced upstairs to upload her photos onto the computer so she could share her photos with the girls from her writing group that live in the far south US.
The snow was pretty much gone by ten the next morning. But it was fun while it lasted. It was also nice to see DT getting back to normal. She's had a rough few weeks.
