The pause last night was needed as I went one full night of sleep without waking to cough! Sometimes antibiotics cure what ails you, especially if an x-ray demonstrates that you do have pneumonia, the walking kind, but it ain't no walk in the park.
My day will be filled with five parades. The first one begins at my daughter's school. The Pre-K and K classes have decorated wagons and dressed in costumes and will throw to the parents and siblings that attend. My daughter chose to dress as a Cafe du Monde chef, complete with hat and tray of goodies (plastic). So New Orleans so quickly.
The other parades begin at 6 and continue until the Muses end it at some ridiculous hour for children but will be right when the other parents without babysitters are blog hopping along through the internet. Even if you aren't a parent, check out the list. There are some interesting and witty people out there.
