8:45 PM Today has been a full day for everyone. Susan left early again this morning for work--I honestly don't know how she does it (I am just not a morning person)! We had planned ahead for this morning, and both girls were already dressed for school this morning and prepared for getting up a little bit early and having to get going because I have my regular Wednesday pastor's meeting today. For the most part, they were willing to cooperate with more of a rush this morning than normal, although Sophie struggled to take her medicine. I can completely appreciate that she is fed up with taking all this stuff, but there's no discussing whether or not she's going to take the meds--she's just going to take them.
I had my meeting this morning and left for campus for an orientation for the South Africa trip this summer. By the time I got home, I was wiped out. Thankfully, the girls were happy to entertain themselves and both wanted sandwiches for dinner, which was fine with me. Susan showed up a little after the girls ate and we had leftovers. Then it was bathtime. Following the bath, we all watched about 30 minutes of Lilo and Stitch 2 (thanks, Oma!).
Sophie has seemed a little slow today, dragging and tired. I can't help but imagine that her little body is wiped out from the meds yesterday. Of course, she started her five days of steroids yesterday as well. Maybe this five-day course won't be as easy as the others, who knows?
