It is clear that I will not be getting much sleep tonight as A seems to be hallucinating. Every ten minutes or so she starts flailing about and crying out. At first she thought C was in her room trying to take her CD player. More recently, she was convinced that Zak and Wheezie from Dragon Tales had taken her lunch box. (Do you see a theme here?) A few minutes ago she started laughing at the silly goats in shoes. I didn't even know that she knew what a goat was. But, apparently they have silly shoes on. Now she is crying out because her pigtails are missing. Which is slightly amusing if you know just how long it takes me to convince her to put them in every morning and then how quickly she takes them out and hides the holders.

My attempts to get fluid into A have been remarkably unsuccessful, so I am guessing we will be headed into the pediatrician's office bright and early tomorrow morning for an exam. And this will now make the fourth year in a row that we have seen the pediatrician within 24 hours of our intended departure for Maine. There seems to be some bad, bad karma going on here. On the up side, I won't have to spend 39 cents to send in C's medical form for school next year.

At least our power is back.
