Day #1859 (Thu., Feb. 5, 2015) – Mommy Loses Her Voice

My wife applied for Katie to attend the Mandarin Program yesterday. In this program she will be learning Mandarin Chinese. It’s all up to a lottery but we hope she will be accepted. Knowing Mandarin Chinese is a good skill to have in the years ahead.

We got an email from Kasey this morning. She said: “I am feeling hesitant about spending the day with Katie today. I have seemed to catch something similar to your cold as well as a stomach bug that kept me up most the night. I’m not sure what to do and feel bad since it’s so last minute, but maybe either I could leave earlier if I need to or come later? I would hate for Katie to get sick too.”

We decided that my wife would take care of Katie and I would leave work as close to 5pm as possible.

  • Dishwashing gloves
  • Steel dishwashing pads
  • Ribbons
  • Little toys for Valentines presents for Katie’s school

I also picked up Katie a Disney princess helium balloon (see photo to the right).
