So, when I started work on Monday, I told Bossman #2 that it was a guarantee that someone in the family would end up sick or hurt this week. He gave me a little grin and we went on with work. True to my word, yesterday I got a phone call from the school telling me that Luke had a fever and I had to go pick him up. So, I picked up all three kids around 3:00 and headed home. Luke got into the doctor at 6:45 and was diagnosed with an ear infection. He's now on antibiotics and should make a full recovery. Poor kid.
So, I would call the first week a dismal failure, but at least I got out of the house, put on business clothes (even if they don't zip all the way up), and billed at least 20 hours. Hopefully, next week will improve.
