Today we took a somewhat last minute trip to the Contemporary Jewish Museum in the city to see the exhibit Curious George Saves the Day: The Art of Margaret and H.A. Rey. I had been planning to see the exhibit but it hadn't happened and today was the last day of it so off we went. I had talked with S. about before and he kept asking about going to the "George Jewish Museum" which, although it sounded weird, apparently differentiated it for him from the CG exhibit at the Children's Discovery Museum a couple a year or so ago. We fortunate to have an easy drive in despite the rain and the lot under the museum had plenty of parking spaces. Apparently, rainy Sunday afternoons are a good time to drive into San Francisco.

Anyhow, as many of you many know, I am a HUGE Curious George fan. And I am talking old-school, pipe-smoking, ether-sniffing Curious George, not whatever that irritating creature is on that horrid PBS cartoon. I have collected CG stuff for years and S.'s room has been done in a CG theme since before he was born (we've since added truck and owl stuff to it, but he loves his George stuff still). We have all the CG books (originals and new stories with original drawings and stuff done "in the style" of the Reys), as well as some of their lesser-known works. S. has always loved the books, especially "Curious George Gets a Medal" because that is the book where George spills the ink then fills the house up with soap lather and anything where someone makes a big mess is welcome by him.

I was hoping the exhibit wouldn't disappoint and it certainly did not. It was wonderful, fun, touching, and informative. There were so many original drawings, paintings, and sketches of Curious George material as well as the Reys' other works. There was quite a bit detailing their escape via bicycle from Nazi forces in Paris, some of which I already knew from the CDM exhibit and some of which was new to me. It tickled me to no end to some of the dummy books of the Curious George series and to see unused George illustrations. I was particularly amused by the one of George piling boxes atop a rocking chair and climbing up it and the falling off. That is pretty much L. in a nutshell, right there. It was also fascinating to see the Reys' hand drawn wedding announcement and New Year's cards.

S. really enjoyed the whole exhibit, but preferred anything that showed scenes he was already familiar with from the books. He narrated a number of the books as well. It was quite happy-making for all of us. L. got a bit fussy because he couldn't really run around there, but [livejournal.com profile] ptor pushed him around the museum and he managed.

We poked around the rest of the museum a bit as well, and saw an interesting exhibit documenting one woman who transcribed the Torah under public view at the museum. It is now complete and being proofed, so there was video of her describing the process. Fascinating and so very far from my own experience.

After the museum we stopped for an early dinner at California Pizza Kitchen as that was the closest kid-friendly place we saw and had a good meal. S. enthusiastically announced "I WANT DESSERT!" when our server asked if we wanted it, so we did in fact also have dessert. L. was asleep before we made it back on the Bay Bridge and S. fell asleep by the time we hit the eastern span.

Good day for all of us. One picture to share (now photography allowed in the museum galleries):

We are in the process of a massive living room reconfiguration as L. has been using the safety fences to climb up onto the sofa, the side of the entertainment center, and just to climb up. Not good. Fences coming down, different style gates going up in the kitchen doorway and mid-hallway. All S.'s small (as in choking hazard) toys are being moved out of what was previously his living room area and into his room or the kitchen.

L. is a beast. A very strong beast. We are having to child-proof in ways we never had to for S., and S. already required more child-proofing than the average child. I am hoping we are able to keep furniture in the living room. Seriously. He is only thirteen months old so telling him "no" doesn't really do squat. All we can do is try to keep him safe.

This is quite trying.

Christmas is over and it was all fun but the adults around here are feeling done. We did Christmas in the Park and Zoo Lights this week. Christmas Eve we did a gumbo dinner with [livejournal.com profile] catzen and today we had my family here (my mom, dad, aunt, uncle, and [livejournal.com profile] catzen. The kids got lots of gifts, including a veritable mountain of Legos for S. who spent the entire day working on them. L. is mostly excited about his new toy vacuum and just the general festivities. I got [livejournal.com profile] ptor a grain grinder which he has wanted for a while and he got me a new drive for my computer (I need more storage desperately). I also had gotten the new camera a couple of months ago as an early birthday/Christmas gift.

S. and I decorated gingerbread cookies last night which was fun, but I am embarrassed to say my cookies do not look significantly neater or better decorated than his. He is good at this stuff. He had a lot of fun serving his cookies today--he was very proud of them.

So tired now. Oh, yeah, [livejournal.com profile] ptor was working all day, so that kind of sucked and added to both our tiredness. He is off until New Year's Eve which is great. However, I have a complicated stress fracture in my foot that I am not supposed to be walking on any more than I am need to so a lot our possible plans have been dashed. So unamused about the clusterfuck of injuries I am dealing with, not to mention that I have been dancing on this injured food for over a year (it was misdiagnosed). Best case is minimal activity (no dancing, no swimming, no yoga, no walks, etc.) for two months while it is immobilized and it will get better. Worst case is surgery to remove stuff so that it can heal.

Anyhow...

More about health later. For now, we made it through Christmas, the kids are finally asleep, and we really need some rest now.
cassidyrose: (glasses/high contrast)
Got some stuff done today. We had L.'s one year well check today and he is doing quite well. He got four shots which he was really displeased about, but otherwise he did great. After that I took the kids to IKEA where S. was thrilled just to look at everything and L. was placated by Cheerio's. I got the all-plastic high chair there for L. to replace S.'s old big Graco one which we are just unable to get all the way clean anymore...yick. I also got some soft storage bins for L.'s toys, some storage containers for myself, a cute nightlight for S. for Christmas (I think it is supposed to be a monster, but he thinks it's an owl and he loves owls), lightbulbs, and some picture frames. Good trip.

This evening it was unexpectedly clear and dry so we took the kids to San Jose for dinner at Spaghetti Factory and then a late walk through Christmas in the Park. S. enjoyed the Spaghetti Factory experience (I hadn't been there in probably nearly ten years) as I suspected he would and loved Christmas in the Park as always. I should have just brought something to record his running narrative. L. enjoyed it as well, especially once he was out of the stroller and in the Ergo on [livejournal.com profile] ptor. Kids were up *way* too late, but they had a great time.

Tomorrow is more errands. Thursday night we will probably do Zoo Lights at the Oakland Zoo.

In other news, still waiting on the MRI results on my foot (possible stress fracture). ::sigh::

Also, I had enough in Amazon gift cards and birthday money to order the telephoto lens I wanted. Not the most snazzy one in the world, but a decent one for what I was willing to spend. So excited. It will be here on Wednesday. And speaking of lenses, I just cannot quit the Sigma 50mm macro. I love that lens. Seriously.

Ok, to bed with me.
cassidyrose: (glasses/high contrast)
Home from visiting my parents and other family for my and L.'s birthdays. He is enjoying all his new toys and S. is enjoying his "big brother" presents (small things gotten mostly to distract him from L.'s gift opening). I am headed to bed in a minute and hope to get some decent sleep. L.'s one year appointment is tomorrow, then maybe we will get S.'s hair trimmed.

I am wiped out from a VERY busy week last week. Last weekend I went to three parties then got food poisoning on Sunday night. [livejournal.com profile] ptor had to stay home from work on Monday because I could barely move (though I did still manage to nurse L.). I still felt sick through Tuesday. On Wednesday S. had a dentist appointment and that night I had a long (three hours) school board meeting. On Thursday morning I had a MRI done on my foot (possible stress fracture) and Thursday evening was S.'s class holiday potluck. Fun, but I barely got to sit down on Thursday. Friday was a somewhat ill-advised trip to Toys R Us with the kids to get L.'s birthday gifts and Saturday we headed out of town.

Too. Much. Activity.

S. has no school this week which kind of sucks, especially since it is raining and L. has a runny nose, so indoor kid-places are out as well as outdoor stuff (though I may just send S. out back on the deck in boots and a jacket and tell him to collect rainwater or something. Christmas Eve and Christmas will be here because [livejournal.com profile] ptor has to work a 6-6 on Christmas day.

That is all for now...must get some sleep.

slow day

Jul. 25th, 2010 02:23 pm
cassidyrose: (glasses/high contrast)
Having a slow day here around the house. Soon we will head out to do some shopping and maybe some more yardwork or housework, but that will be all. Yesterday we had our typical busy Saturday with rehearsal then lunch with [livejournal.com profile] catzen. We also hit Pendragon's and got some new books--an amigurimi book that S. desperately wanted (I am sure I have more "yarn monster" making in my future), a Cajun cookbook for my brother-in-law and sister (he is Cajun), and food book for me ("The United States of Arugula"). We got a gelato treat Market Hall after failing to find tarragon vinegar there--should have stopped at Berkeley Bowl before we left West Berkeley yesterday...ah well.

We had a busy week last week. School three mornings, school board meeting for me one night, trip to the zoo, trip to the farm and produce stand, got the car washed, got the oil changed in the car, and went to the library to return our temporarily misplaced books (and pay the fine) and get even more books about vehicles, construction machines, and a couple about spider and caterpillars thrown in as well.

Not too much else. L. started solid foods this week and is *loving&* it. So far he's had rice cereal, plums, and avocado. Good stuff.
cassidyrose: (glasses/high contrast)
Today was somewhat mellow. Well, as mellow as it can be with the two kids. L. is teething and was up and down all last night so we were really tired today. We managed to get S. to school more or less on time and came home and L. nursed and napped and I paid bills and cleaned out the car. When we showed up at school to retrieve S. we found him covered in flour from head to toe, a result of a sensory project that he apparently enjoyed quite a bit---on Friday the project had been shaving cream and he had apparently been so into it that the teacher had to take his shoes off to clean his feet and shoes. After school we went and got the car washed then home for lunch and L. thankfully took a really long nap. Even better he did so in his crib, unswaddled (he had just transitioned to his crib and to sleeping unswaddled). S. helped me, well sort of helped me, clean off the kitchen table, AKA his craft room, so we could put down a plastic table cloth--I am tired of trying to get Tacky Glue and paint off the table. Now he can craft all he wants without me worrying about damage to the table.

Close to five this evening I did something I had never done before--I took S. out on his bike with L. in the stroller. I planned the outing so there was only one street crossing and I did that with no cars present and I think we managed it safely (it's hard to walk a bike, push a stroller, and hang onto a child all at the same time). We walk and rode down to the little park near our house and checked out the new play structure that was recently installed. S. had fun playing on it and L. loved watching him slide down the slides. S. rode the path all around the park then we headed home and I started dinner which I finished after [livejournal.com profile] ptor got home and took the kids outside to play.

Then dinner, baths, and bed. Just winding down here. Contemplating a trip to the zoo tomorrow, maybe the farm on Thursday.

Must rest now.
cassidyrose: (looking over shoulder)
More detail to follow, but...

L. is officially crawling. Hasn't yet fully master a true cross-crawl, but he is crawling and getting from point A to point B quite effectively.

L. can also pull himself to standing. He also took his first ride in a park swing this week.

S. demonstrated this evening that he can button his own clothing. We didn't try to teach him...he just did it. He is also now able to snap his pants closed as well. I am still impressed with him buttoning his shirt as I have *never* seen him practice it.

And, lest she be forgotten, Harlie is convinced that L.'s new crib is in fact her new bed. ::sigh::
cassidyrose: (glasses/high contrast)
We're just trudging along here. Finally seem to be over the multiple bouts of illness. Still adjusting to [livejournal.com profile] ptor being gone ~eleven hours a day but it is getting better.

Rehearsing like crazy for the new show. Get your tickets! My body hates me for tapping so much after not tapping pretty much at all for about seven years, but I am so psyched that we are tapping in the show!

Spent yesterday at my parents for my dad's birthday and belated father's day celebration. It was good. S. swam a bunch and L. went in a pool for the very first time and enjoyed it quite a bit. We are exhausted now, though. S. started summer school today and we are all happy to be back on our school schedule.

I took the kids to the county fair last week and they both had a great time. S. really loved the elaborate model train exhibit, the garden exhibits, the pinewood derby cars, and riding the pedal tractors. L. just loved looking around. We may try to get to the children's museum this week.

In other news, S. has turned our kitchen into a "play-doh decorations" factory and I fear we will need a Hoarder's intervention to dig us out from under all the play-doh crafts. L. is almost crawling and is really, really busy these days.

Our house is a disaster as things got out of control with all the sickness and extra rehearsing. Hoping to make some headway in that department today.

And with that I am off to sweep and mop the kitchen before I have to get S. from school.
cassidyrose: (Great American Music Hall)
We attended Maker Faire yesterday and it was mostly fun. S. had a rough start but warmed up and had fun after a couple of hours. He is terrified of fire so we had to steer clear of the fire-producing installations and everything around them, so we mostly had to pass on the art cars which was too bad. He was mostly happy doing craft projects, building with the LEGOS, looking at the odd vehicles, and poking around the craft bazaar. He came home with a set of hairpins with felted wool adornments (he wanted them "for decorations"), a couple of fabric craft projects, a bar of soap he made with a toy dinosaur inside, two new building kits (from a toy tore vendor), and an owl amigurimi doll from a vendor in the bazaar (I decided it was easier to fork over the cash for the "owl yarn monster" he became obsessed with than making one myself). I enjoyed just looking at everything and [livejournal.com profile] ptor liked the electronics stuff and purchased a microcontroller kit he wanted. I got myself the Port of Oakland cranes/At-At t-shirt and got one for L. as well. Too cute. One of the cooler things at the Faire was a teletype machine rigged to print messages sent via text. I sent one to Matilda who tried to retrieve it but the distributors couldn't find it (boo!) and we forgot the pick up the one I sent [livejournal.com profile] ptor. Oh well...it was still fun doing it. I also took lots of pictures. Below is a link to the set of non-kiddo-containing ones:

looong day

Apr. 18th, 2010 12:58 am
cassidyrose: (looking over shoulder)
We left the house at 11:30am today and didn't not return until close to 10pm. Yikes. I went to rehearsal and taught for the first time since before L. was born. So, so good to be back. After rehearsal we went to the newish Berkeley Bowl in west Berkeley to get some food for a party we were attending later and so I could acquire my millet and whole wheat pastry flour. Got some other goodies from the bulk bin and S.'s Golden Delicious apples (a new favorite of his)--would have liked to have shopped more but we were short on time and it was too overwhelming. After shopping hit party #1 and had fun. [livejournal.com profile] mactavish took S. outside to meet their chickens and he was thrilled to feed them and give them new hay. After hanging out for a while we went to party #2 where the only people I knew were [livejournal.com profile] ptor, S., and L. The people at the party were plenty nice, but I just didn't feel like I was in my element--these were not my rad fatties. After party #2 we headed home and it was already too late for the kiddos. Got L. to sleep nearly right away, but S. had mostly refused to eat all day so he wanted dinner then we had to do all the bedtime stuff and he got to bed way too late. I just checked on him and he fell asleep with the book he was reading on his face. Tired guy.

A good day, if tiring. School maintenance party tomorrow and don't know what else.

baby stuff

Feb. 1st, 2010 05:34 pm
cassidyrose: (looking over shoulder)
Still need to make a baby journal.

Until then...

L. is doing great. He was 12lbs 4oz at his four week check-up and at six weeks he was about 13.5 lbs (weighed him at Baby and Me group). Yes, he is huge, and is following the same exact growth pattern as S. which is fascinating. He nurses really well and has just started taking a bottles of my milk occasionally and does that just fine. He nurses about 7-8 times a day and goes 6-8 hours overnight without eating (not a problem since he is gaining weight so well).

L. is a super-mellow baby which is a blessing from the universe for us. He only cries a little bit each day which is great but so strange compared to poor S. who spent hours crying each day no matter what we did. L sleeps for a 4-6.5 hour stretch at night which is huge for a baby his age. Even better is that he sleeps this in his co-sleeper lying down, swaddled up--not in the swing, not sitting on me, not in the car sear, but next to me in his own little bed. He even wakes and settles himself back down which was unheard of in our previous baby experience. We hope it keeps up. We wear him a lot during the day and I know that helps, but we wore S. a lot too and he had a terrible time sleeping. L. has some minor reflux, but nothing bad like S. had which is great. Poor S. had such a hard time. The only sleep issue we really have is that L. is a really, really loud breather and makes a lot of noise at night so it can be hard for me to sleep through. The upside is that I can hear him breathe so I am not constantly touching his chest to check for breathing. The noise is fine according to his pediatrician and our midwife so that is good.

That said, we are still tired. Six hour of sleep for L. means maybe four for me. There is still so much to get done that needs to get done without a baby awake or on me. But we are at least getting enough sleep throughout each 24 hours period to keep from going nuts.

In other baby-goodness, L. has been giving us social smiles which is great. S. in particular loves them. L. also pushes up on his hands when on his belly really well and the other day he did a HUGE push-up and arched his back up to look at S. L. seems to be strong like his brother. :-) L.'s head control is getting better and better and he tracks pretty well with his eyes already. He will spend extended periods of time staring at us which is quite sweet.

And now, a few pictures. Click here for cuteness )
cassidyrose: (glasses/high contrast)
I got brave and took both children to the farm today...by myself. Sounds small, but it was kind of a big deal. Getting out the door was a challenge, but the actual farm excursion was pretty easy as there were only a few other people there and it is far from traffic so keeping up with S. was easy. It was very nice out there. Nice and quiet, if cold and damp. L. spent most the trip asleep in the wrap on me. It was good to walk around and just hang out outside.


So, there, that is what I have accomplished this week.
cassidyrose: (looking over shoulder)
We are still here and alive, just tired and consumed by new-baby care and three-year old care. Things are going pretty well, but last night was horrible and we are taking turns sleeping today. S.'s school is back in session tomorrow which is very welcome--getting him out to an organized activity trumps the inconvenience of one of us having to get him up and out to said activity. Newborns just require so much dedicated time and attention and it is hard to manage that and keep S. entertained and marginally happy. I had forgotten how much time it takes to nurse a newborn--I am spending roughly ten hours a day solely engaged in feeding the baby. It is exhausting. I also forgot how noisy newborns are when they sleep and how much laundry they generate. There were lots of things I forgot about newborns, but it is still a whole lot easier the second time around.

Overall, we are doing OK, we just feel like everything has been turned upside down, because, well, it has. But it is good. We love our new little baby and are so happy he is here with us. I keep reminding myself that he is only two weeks old and it does get easier and things do get more settled.

Not much else to say right now. Too tired. More later.
cassidyrose: (glasses/high contrast)
We are up and starting on a slooooow Sunday. S. and I are still rather sick. Poor S. has beens sick since Monday with a bad cold...I've had the same thing for the past few days. Ugh. I don't want to do anything today except rest. S. is tired of being in the house but, well, he's a sick little guy. His cough is starting to not sound good. :-(

That's about all I have to update. Since we didn't have fevers we were able to get our H1N1 vaccines at the county clinic yesterday--we only had to wait in line for an hour...woo-hoo! S. has to get another shot in 3-4 weeks and I really hope he can get from our health care provider by then (they currently have only a super-limited supply restricted to those with immune issues, etc.) so we don't have to stand in another clinic line. Last night S. kept asking us, "Why are some people scared of a poke from a little needle and some blood?" The crying and screaming kids at the shot clinics perplex him. Now, he didn't want to go because he said the shot hurts, but he did go and doesn't scream. He just winces a bit.

I am hoping to finish Baby Pickle's blanket today or tomorrow. It is looking nice. And I just want to sleep more.
cassidyrose: (glasses/high contrast)
S. is sick with some sinus thing and I was up with him until 4:30 this morning. Thankfully he finally slept and stayed asleep until 11:30. He cannot breathe when he is lying down so he doesn't want to sleep. Poor guy.

I have officially hit the final-weeks-of-pregnancy-wall. I am so tired I don't want to do anything. Seriously. Unfortunately we have a whole lot of stuff to get done. Just putting one foot in front of the other.

[livejournal.com profile] ptor has an in-person interview today and another (at a different company) tomorrow. We are hoping something comes of either or both of them. However, now that we are so close to Baby Pickle showing up it is not great timing, but we need the income so we will do whatever we need to do. I am very disheartened that Adobe is laying off 680 employees, Applied Materials 1,300-1,500, and EA is cutting 1,500. These are all huge tech employers in the Bay Area and that is a whole more jobs just gone. Not to mention Sun's recent massive downsizing and the impending NUMMI plant closure which will eliminate nearly 5,000 jobs at NUMMI alone, not to mention the tens of thousands that will be affected by the plant's closure.

The weather is finally sorta kinda changing around here. No longer feels like the end of summer.

I am jamming away on a baby blanket for the baby, and also need to get a hat done for my nephew and for S. We also need to take care of holiday gift shopping very soon. I'll put it on the list.

The political climate continues to distress and depress me. The Stupak Amendment to the health care reform bill is just one glaring example of why. It is clearly the goal of far too many to restrict access to abortion to a level which would effectively make it illegal once again. It's just wrong and tragic.

And with that I should go fix S. the blackberries he has requested and convince him that we need to rest today because he is SICK!!!!
cassidyrose: (Great American Music Hall)
We had S.'s preschool Halloween in-class party today and that was fun. He didn't want to wear a costume, but he was happy to wear the pumpkin hat I made him along with an orange shirt with pumpkins on it. He was really rather cute. The kids who wore costumes with masks seemed to scare him a bit. :-( Wednesday night we had pumpkin carving night at school and he helped make a nice jack-o-lantern. We have two more pumpkins to carve tonight or tomorrow.

It is warm here today, as it often is in the Bay Area on Halloween. Despite that I am pretending we are having fall weather and I have a quadruple batch of Pepper Potato Fennel Soup in the crockpot and will be making a chard strudel to accompany it tonight.

We are going to try to do something relatively low-key yet Halloween-y tomorrow. If nothing else we can all sit on the porch and hand out candy.

Not much else. Too much baby prep to do, but first I need a nap after too many days of not nearly enough sleep.
cassidyrose: (light blur self)
I've been writing about food and cooking a lot lately. That is obviously not all my life is about, but sometimes that is all I have the energy to write about. Things are kind of shitty for a number of people that I know and two friends this past week had to deal with losing a beloved pet. Then there is the immense suckitude that is cancer affecting the lives of many that I know. It was a crappy week(s) for many people I care about and I don't feel like there is too much I can do to help. I can listen and offer support and hugs, but that doesn't make the dead pets come back nor does it make the cancer go away.

In the bigger picture, the political crazies I've been seeing sort of terrify me in ways I have yet to be able to put into words here very well. I am scared about what is happening economically and what is not happening on the health care reform and GLBT rights front.

I am also find myself disgusted with how shitty some parents can be. And by that I am not even talking about the abusers and those that neglect their children. I am talking about people who cannot be bothered to give their children one frikkin' boundary to save their lives and those lack of boundaries *always* end up at the expense of other children. I am talking about the parents who encourage anti-social and inappropriate behavior, such as chasing animals. This week it was asshat parents at the farm *laughing* while their children (old enough to know better, btw) aggressively chased and cornered a horribly frightened peacock. I intervened and got the children to stop and sternly told the parents in question that it was not OK to allow children to chase animals, and that that sort of behavior was incredibly inappropriate. No one even bothered to apologize or actually explain to their children that the behavior was wrong. Sometimes I have little faith in humanity. Seriously.

There are good things of course.

S. brings us great joy and he is turning into this incredibly delightful little person full of ideas, stories, likes, dislikes, opinions, thoughts, dreams, plans, and so much love. He enjoys his life so much and that is wonderful to see. He holds us intensely in his gaze when he speaks to us and that is so beautiful and heart-warming. He wants to know everything about anything and his capacity for learning seems to know no bounds. So many things interest and excite him--it is wonderful to see. And his language gets more and more complex each day.

We are looking forward to the new baby, but are nervous as well. Ten more weeks. Yikes! I am eternally grateful that this pregnancy has been a million times easier than my first. May it stay that way. Hell, I am 30 weeks along and still have barely had any discernible swelling. Kind of freaky, but I'll take it.

We had a wonderful tomato crop this year and our freezer is full of tomatoes for use over the winter.

We just celebrated our five year anniversary with Ms. Harlequin. She is no longer the skinny, scruffy, dusty shelter kitty we brought home, but a full grown, well-fed, and awfully pampered cat. We love her and are so happy she is our sweet cat-baby.

And it should not escape mention that I am so, so happy to be married and raising a family with [livejournal.com profile] ptor. We have had to deal with some stressful external forces, but we are truly happy. I feel quite fortunate.

S. has a fever of 101 and a runny nose. We think he also has a sore throat. No school and probably no school all week given the school's current flu policy. He is doing OK otherwise. Hopefully he and the rest of us don't get super-sick.

::sigh::

S. is definitely sick. We had suspected he was on his way to sick-town and sadly he arrived today...at around 4am. He is napping now and I may do the same. I am feeling rather tired myself and not 100%. We are hoping this is not H1N1--his fever is still pretty low and he is not horribly ill, but the risks of H1N1 to pregnant women is making us nervous. He is mostly pissed off that we won't take him anywhere today. I am hoping he sleeps for a couple more hours.

So that is the great excitement around here. We were all going to go the Children's Museum today but obviously those plans got nixed.

I am not happy that my head and sinuses hurt, either.
