Saturday loneliness

I'm the only one awake. Zoey is feeling much better after her 4.5 hour nap. She has eaten her first full meal in two days. Kent is better. He is still pretty tired and weak from his whole ordeal, but he also managed to eat a whole meal this evening. He was running a fever earlier, but I think it has since gone back to normal. He will get the whole bed to himself for at least one more night. Until I get a chance to wash the sheets. Plus, gives me time to test out all the other beds for comfiness. So far Jon Kent's bed is comfortable.. for one.. not two. Maybe the couch tonight? Who knows. Oh the excitement...

Moving along...

Poor Jon Kent. He has been stuck indoors for two days now. One on account of the sick ones needing tending to, but mostly because of the rain. Will it ever stop? But finally this afternoon, once Zoey was feeling better, I said forget it and we went out and played. They got wet by sliding down the slides, riding their Jeep around and just running and falling in the wet grass. They had a ball roaming the yard, finding mushrooms and smashing them with their feet. By the time we got back inside they were wet, dirty and tired. So bath time it was. They were all in bed by 7:50 and shortly there after sleep. Besides the sickies and just being bored, today turned out better than expected.

Chilling out under his "tent".

Yeah.. I really don't know what he was doing.

Glad to hear everyone seems to be doing better! I hope that is still the case tomorrow as well!! I hope you were able to find a comfy place to sleep tonight.

Hopefully you get to enjoy the next 2 days with Kent before its back to the same old routine again!!

Glad you got them out ... cabin fever makes for cranky monsters. Hope recovery continues on the up in your house.

I'd love a little inventory of JK's thoughts, perhaps:

LET ME OUT OF THIS BORING SICKLY HOUSE!
He looks more than ready to run free. ~Mary
