Hello? Is there a brain in there?

Did you know it's Thursday?

Because it is. And I completely forgot. Which means I was not at the school to pack and deliver the milk for first nutrition break. Argh.

Before you worry about the thirsty little children in need of their calcium fix (which I am doing of course) let me reassure you that I have a very capable partner in crime on Thursday mornings who is more than able to handle the milk by herself. So there are no thirsty children I am sure.

Both of my children have fevers (and is that a tickle in my throat? Ugh. No, please no.) My beautiful little girl pulled a semi-allnighter. She got up at 3 am and didn't go back to sleep until after 6 am. And that after the cat tried to vomit on our carpet about 3 times between midnight at 3 am.

I am useless today. (I can't believe I forgot the milk.)

Thankfully this is the first time in a long time that this has happened. Back in Luxembourg it was common practice a few times a month. How I used to go to work and function I do not know. I couldn't do it now.

I need more coffee. Preferably delivered intravenously so it kicks in quick.

Nutrition break? That's so quaint and kind.

Sadly, I don't think we honor that tradition here.

(But the fever/cough crap? We've got THAT going on. I'm dosing on the herbs, right now.)
