Day 281 – Sick Day

DJ came downstairs at about 3am, knocked on our door, and declared her tummy hurt.  We had her lay down on the couch, but were awoken to the sound of her being sick in our bathroom.  Oh, joy!

Garbanzo got up to check on her.  “She looks like hell” was his assessment. He went to school, and I wondered what crack he had been smoking when he woke up.  DJ was up and chattering like crazy by 8am. She was begging for food about 8:30.  And by 10am, I was wondering why she was not at school. 

After 3 hours of Sponge Bob Square Pants, I decided to teach her to knit in hopes of her getting her to do something else.  What I discovered was she can do two things at once.  She’s very proud of her progress on her scarf.  She’s doing pretty good so far.  I started her with 10 stitches, and she had 18 stitches the last time I counted.  Not bad.  I expected loss of stitches not that large of a gain.

All I know is that she’s going to school tomorrow. And I will be free of Sponge Bob.

    Great idea to teach her knitting.. And while being able to multi-task is a wonderful thing, it sucks when you’re trying to avoid Satan Bob!!! :):)

    Yay for knitting! A valuable skill to learn as a youngster. Well, maybe not valuable… useful? Get ready for a lifetime supply of scarves! =)

  3. I am glad she is feeling better. I debate wanting to learn how to knit with the safety issues of giving me knitting needles.

    I love when I keep my kids home bc they ‘seem’ sick…only to have them drive me nuts all day bc they so totally *aren’t* sick. LOL

    She’s a quick learner! The last time LP had to stay home sick I taught her how to make Friendship bracelets. 🙂

  5. Knitting is my guilty pleasure, everyone always mocks me for it but I absolutely love it. It reminds me of my Grandma who was a prodigious knitter, and she was the one who taught me painstakingly how to do it! I realise now how frustrating that must have been for her!
