With all of the laying around today, I finally finished House Rules by Jodi Picoult. It was a pretty good book, but I don't think I'd read it again. The reason I selected it at the library is because I've been interested in learning more about Asperger's syndrome, and the main character in this novel is a teenage boy who has Asperger's. I would recommend plenty of other books over this one, but if you are a lover of fiction and mystery, then you might really enjoy this.
One of my favorite things about sick days are the small traditions we've formed: for some reason the kids always get bubble baths, I make citrus-y juice in the juicer, we build a giant train track on the rug in the living room. I think the kids like sick days more than well days, and I don't really blame them. Mom and Dad both being home and too lethargic to not be used as a jungle gym? Kid heaven.
What are some of your sick-day traditions? Any special food or drink that you crave when you're feeling under the weather?
