In Which We Take A Trip To (But Do Not Buy) The Farm

Today was a pretty good day.

I kept Connor back one more day from school, which ended up being a good thing as he threw up all of his breakfast. Obviously he's not quite over being sick yet-- hopefully given the chance to recover over the weekend he'll be back to 100% by Monday. I'm pretty positive he's not contagious any more, but when you're in a class that possibly contains immunodeficient kids you can't muck around with that sort of thing. Poor little guy.

My mother-in-law and I did take him on an outing today with us; our weekly trip to the food coop and to the farm to pick up our CSA share. He'd been asking about the chickens earlier in the week because we used to go and see them every Friday; lately we've had the friend we share the CSA with doing the pickup at the farm so Connor hasn't had an opportunity to say hello to his fine feathered friends. Of course once we got to the farm he didn't want to have anything to do with them, and was only marginally more interested in the huge white tom turkey, who even fluffed up and showed off for us. Oh well.

Jer and I are headed out on a date tomorrow. Whoo hoo! I'm not sure where we're going to go yet; I'm sure we'll figure something out. It's supposed to be nice and sunny-- hope the weather cooperates and follows the forecast. We'll probably head back to the park, and then we'll figure out what we want to do from there. Going out on a date with a man in a wheelchair is a whole new world. We don't want to go anywhere with a crowd because there's a much bigger chance of someone bumping into Jer's feet. We need someplace with wide, smooth passageways in good repair. If it's a place for eating, it has to be big enough for Jer to sit in his chair at the table without blocking traffic. So many things to think about!

I'm sure we'll make it up as we go along-- we usually muddle through somehow. And besides, a date is a date. It doesn't get much better than that!

Here's to Connor getting completely well by Monday! The chickens were obviously not up to par today - maybe next time they'll be more entertaining.

I hope you had a good "date night," wherever you ended up going! It is good to get out, even if getting out is a bit of a hassle.
