Last week we stayed home most of the time because Peter was sick. And now I know. That is not a good idea. I missed running at the gym and having my regular breaks (Peter didn't go to preschool and the babysitter's). Peter was short-tempered and hard to manage, even though we did have a couple play dates at our place. Peter still has a lingering cough, but we've resumed our regular schedule this week. It is much, much better. Next time Peter's sick, I've got to make sure to have some alternate activities for us. Like running together (grin).
