Lucas is sick. Actually, today he’s a little better, but I’m keeping him home from school again. He’s had a fever for about 36 hours. His temperature goes up to 102 degrees, then we give him ibuprofen, then it goes down and he’s more comfortable again until he sleeps. Then his temp goes back up. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. We did nothing all day.

I called the gym yesterday to let the swimming instrutor know that we wouldn’t be able to make our private swim lesson. They said not to worry: the swimming lessons were cancelled because the pool was 94 degrees. Too hot.

My AC has been on almost nonstop for 4 days.
Thank god we have the overhead fan in the office now.
