Ryan was fidgety last night when I went to bed. At 1 am he had a fever. He won't take any meds so he continued to toss and turn all night. He would like still for a few minutes if he snuggled with me. At 3 am, I could think enough to get the ice pack. That helped some. He still woke up at 4:45 and got up. He came back in at 6:30 to wake me up. And by wake me up I mean kick me out so he can watch cartoons. He still had a fever and I asked if we should stay home. He said no and that it would go away soon.

At 8:00 am, he conceded that he should stay home. I said we could go to the History Center next week and he said "What about Disney?" I still had not booked a room because money is still tight. Yet I could not say no so I said I had to look. He came out and made sure I booked a room. I was surprised that rooms were cheaper than when we went in May. By about $100 for the stay. So we are staying home today and going to Disney next week.

POTD prompt was noise. I know she meant digital noise but I couldn't do it. I opted for a literal translation.

I told Andy we would not be going out today. He seemed OK as it was sinking in. I told him we are going to Disney and he got very happy.

Ready for a nap at 11:00. Ryan still feverish. Glad we stayed home.

Card of the day.

Lunch: grilled cheese, carrots, banana

Layout. I used a template I purchased recently.

I went out to do some errands. I went and got more produce since most of what I got on Saturday was gone. I went to Shannon's and spent $27! $12 was spent just on cherries, $4.99 per pound. I went to the bank. Then I went to Starbucks for carrot cupcake and soy chai latte. Yum! I talked to one of the baristas about matcha green tea. The green color just looks unreal. I assumed that they added food coloring to get the color. She said matcha is just ground tea leaves so they have more antioxidants. I will have to check it out.

My order from Notions arrived. I need to send the paper off to Bonnie and find shelf room for my albums. So much stuff I need to get rid of. No motivation.

Ryan was still feverish but more active.

Dinner: salad and cherries.

Three quick power outages about 7 pm.

Mac OS Lion came out today. I am waiting to see how things go before I download.
