Today almost seemed like a normal day. Went to work. Chaos everywhere between the high absenteeism, holiday excitement, and the mad rush to finish everything necessary for the end of the quarter. Workroom full of goodies. Left early to take my son to the orthodontist. Yep. Almost normal for this time of year. Then I asked my son how he spent the day. It never occurred to him to eat or drink anything all day, because no one was home to remind him. Definitely not himself. I have to be careful not to delude myself into thinking he is recovering faster than he really is. Dealing with the stress by baking a Butterscotch Bubble Loaf, a new recipe I got from our Sunday School teacher. I plan to take it to work to contribute to the decadent delicacies already filling the table. Three more days, then I'm off for 2 weeks for Christmas break.
