Mostly because it's been one thing after another since Patrick left. First I was sick. Then the kids passed a virus around. Then Gyven scratched his cornea with a fork 2 weeks ago (he's fine now, the doctor says he'll have no lingering problems and zero permanent damage, but it was pretty ugly when it happened).
After it healed we went to the zoo with some friends and had a few play dates. Now this week I think Kyra and Sidney have rotavirus or a similar GI upset. It's been pretty unpleasant for all involved.
Hopefully they'll all be better soon!
