Muggles & Magic Ones

Went home for lunch with Jeff and then back here to the grind. He had slept in after I left which is unusual for him. I am certain he needed the extra rest. Grieving takes such a subtle toll sometimes that you don't even realize the effects. I am glad that I can provide him with a place where he can relax and have few more days to not worry about the responsibilties that await at home. There's alot to be said for allowing people peace and time to heal. It happened to work out that he wasn't scheduled to have Isabelle this weekend.

It is difficult to get things done around here today because so many personnnel are involved in the flu pandemic drill. ABC was by to tape footage for a national story on the preparations. I didn't bother going up to be on camera. Even if I had a desire to be on TV, today was not the day. I am having a bad hair day. It is too curly and all fly away, which is saying something since it's naturally straight. I seem to have a yearly transition time when the cold weather dries out my skin and makes my hair fuzzy.
Tonight I am babysitting for a friend's son who is a couple of weeks older than Keegan. She and her husband are going to the new Harry Potter movie. I am a softie for letting couples go on date nights. Besides I don't think it will be all that much more work than one toddler. Famous last words right?
