I have been home with Carlie for a looooong time now. It started last week, when there was a noon dismissal on Friday. We had the weekend together. Then Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, she was home from school with a headache and tummy ache. And now? She's all better! But now? There's no school today or tomorrow for parent/teacher conferences. And then? It's the weekend.
And while she is a lovely girl with a fun personality and nice manners.... WOULD SOMEONE PLEASE GET ME OUT OF HERE!
Also, it is gorgeous and sunny outside, and I have a pile of proofreading to do, and a recently recuperated child chanting "Let's go do something, let's go do something." Which is not very conducive to work productivity. Unless your job is to be insane, in which case it would probably be very helpful.
Does anyone have any great ideas for occupying a 10-year-old child who has been stuck in the house for days on end and exhausted all of her self-entertaining options, WITHOUT CABLE TV, while I get some work done? Anything besides Nyquil, because we're out of that.
