Ah, the joys of shared germs

Ellie has been back to school for a week now, so it was only a matter of time before she brought home Other Kids' Germs. Ellie stayed home sick today. She has a bad case of the sniffles, some sneezing, and a tiny cough that may not stay so tiny. Exhausted, no appetite, but thus far no fever, thank goodness. She looks wrecked, poor thing, not that she'd nap if I paid her a million dollars (but that's just as well because I'm fresh out). I'm hoping it will dissipate over the weekend. It doesn't make for a particularly thrilling weekend, but at least we'll all be here together. Having Markus home for tag-teaming will be great since Stephanie currently feels just fine thank you very much and wants to party at a pace that far outstrips her sagging sister. For now, they're both flopped on the couch with a movie so they can rest (though Stephanie is talking non-stop through it). Ah, the joys of shared germs.
