The rest of the week was a bit of a blur. I started having more sick days. Pretty much every morning was awful. I'd get back from taking Keith and got back to bed. We'd go down for breakfast when the kids got up and then we'd go back to our room and I was sick in bed until lunch. The girls watched lots of channel 8 while I was sick. I hate to admit that, but what else can you do. I tried to make it up to them in the afternoon by doing fun things.
The last activity I'd brought with us was a bag of mini marshmallows and toothpicks to build with. This was one of my sick days. They sat on the bed next to me and played with them. Well, Rue ate them and Ada built these headbands. She figured it out all by herself and I was very impressed. I didn't feel good, but at least they had something to do.
The other thing we did on my sick days (we did this twice the second week) was go to the mall play. One day did finally cool off again and was overcast so we found a park near the mall and then when it started raining we ducked into the mall and the kids played at the play place. Ada loved playing at the mall and making friends. This was the easiest thing to do on the sick days. Ada and Rue were totally entertained and I could sit and try to not throw up.
