A Lazy Morning

I've been up since 5:30 this morning, but I don't feel tired like I sometimes do when I get up and whiz through the morning activities. Charis was the first kiddo up today. Poor girl; she still feels under the weather. She didn't want any breakfast and instead curled up on the couch while the boys and I ate our cereal. Then I got our Sonlight books to read--I picked out some extras since I knew we wouldn't be doing any other "school" activities (at least with Charis), and we sat on the couch and read for an hour. The boys listened while doing puzzles on the floor and table nearby.

Then Charis decided to go up to her room and lay on her bed for awhile. I had given her some Tylenol because she felt feverish again, plus was complaining that her head hurt. She may have dozed a bit off and on, though I couldn't tell since I was doing school activities with Tobin then later puzzles and reading with both boys. I peeked in on her around 10:30 and she said she felt hungry, so I took her some crackers and juice, plus some extra pillows since she wanted to sit up and read. She stayed in her room through lunch time (I did take her a cheese sandwich, since that sounded good to her), reading happily.

The boys played outside awhile after lunch, so I took advantage of the time to clean all 2 1/2 bathrooms! You know it's bad when you have to clean the master bathtub--not because of a ring around the tub, but because of dust!! I don't know how long it's been since anyone used that tub! It's now fuzz and dust-free and ready for me to soak in sometime. :-)

After I finished my cleaning spree, it was around 12:30, and I decided to let the kids watch a Sesame Street DVD we checked out from the library, since it's due tomorrow and we haven't yet seen it. We cuddled on the couch and watched together. The kids are all in bed now, and it's very quiet, though I don't think anyone is actually asleep yet. I started blogging this entry this morning and am just now sitting down to catch up on it! Maybe I'll lie down on the couch and take a short snooze myself!

I sure hope Charis is feeling better soon. Those lazy days are nice though--a good change from routine.
