VV is for...: 10/27/06

Ian had his outpatient operation this morning. As Sean is home with a cold and I had to drive Ian home afterwards, all four of us went to the doctor's office together. Sean, Harriet and I waited while Ian was under the knife, or crochet hook as he described it.

Since coming home, Ian has been recovering downstairs in bed with a bag of frozen peas in his lap. He's also been napping. Meanwhile I've been wrangling the kids upstairs. I did the dishes and got Sean fed. Harriet howled while I scarfed down some food myself.

I was smart enough to ask for a half day at work. Even though I'm working from home, there is no way I could have handled work and the chaos of a sick four-year-old, a recovering husband and a newborn. He's now slowly coming upstairs to keep me company.
