Lydia is home sick from her first week of school. Seems to happen every year. Dr. believes she has mono, but I believe she has strep throat. They were out of testing kits. Anyway, the last few days have been rough for a variety of reasons. I know when I'm stressed because I put half and half in my cereal instead of milk. I know this is bad, but my grandma did it once and got me hooked.
