nausea and basketball

we’ve had a visitor all week in the house. he was totally uninvited and we hope to kick him out tonight. He’s a nasty stomach bug. Got parker puking at the beginning of the week, had erica up all night on wednesday night, and had Kylie waking up sick this morning. I thought i was going to be able to avoid him, but he got me today too. I havent tossed my cookies yet, but i’m wondering if i should to feel better.

thankfully there’s lots of good college basketball on in HD today, so that’s making this a bit easier. I’m not a huge college basketball fan, but i usually get into it around this time. I’ll be filling out brackets this year, and i might be contributing to a Burnside article on the tournament, so i’m trying to soak in as much as possible.

LOST was better this past week. not fantastic, but better. I really liked tension between patches and sayid when they attacked each other. i hope they keep the momentum going in the right direction.

i played Settlers of Catan, Cities and Knights version, last night with Chad and Dawn. It was fun. So stinking complicated. It made regular Settlers look like Candyland. I lost, of course. Dawn won, of course.

Turning the clocks ahead tonight…and all the parents of toddlers around the country groan. if you dont have kids, youve never thought about it before. but imagine being on a tight schedule and suddenly everything shifts. on sunday night we’ll try to put our kids to bed at 9pm but their little bodies will be telling them that it’s only 8pm. so they’ll get to bed late. and they won’t want to get up. it’s not so bad now that our kids are older, but it kills you when they’re younger.

i can’t find anything else worth saying…chalk it up to the sickness…i’m out like like a 5-seed in the NCAA tourney
