Maya's a sickie today. She's got the stomach flu and is sitting, groggy, wide-eyed, and passive in my lap, watching computer movies like 'Field Guide to Snapping' and home movies of Georgia playing miniature golf, while I type around her. She's up to taking 2 tablespoon of Pedialyte every 15 minutes, and she's kept it all down so far, so soon she'll be on to little cups of water every half hour. It just about broke her to watch Georgia eat her chicken bits at lunch. But she's a strong kid, so I expect a very quick recovery. And she doesn't get fevers as high as Georgia so she doesn't worry me as much when she's sick. It's still shocking to have to deal with the amount of nasty liquids that come out of a little kid with the stomach flu. And all the laundry! Luckily for me, that's Billy's department, and he jumps up to super service mode and strips the icky wet bed and does loads of laundry and goes out to buy medicine all before he leaves for work. Good man.

So much for the surprise Ayyam-i-Ha caroling we were going to do tonight. Maybe it will become surprise 'the Fast' caroling- so watch out!...and...stay home!
