The nearest book was Rachael Ray's 30 Minute Meals, but page 123 is blank, and the next page is a list of recipes. The next closest book was Alice Munro's The View From Castle Rock. It a collection of short stories that I picked up from the newest arrivals section at the library yesterday, thinking that it might be about Castle Rock in Wyoming. I was wrong-o, it looks like it is about an actual castle in Scotland. I have not read this book, so I don't know if I can recommend it, yet, but here goes:

My Sydney is still sick. This is day 3 of fever. I never know when it is time to take 'em in to see the doctor. I put it off and put it off, and when I finally go it, they are better and I feel silly. But the fact that she has worked her way through almost the entire bottle of Children's Chewable Motrin tells me that it may very well be time to go in.
In other news, my calves are on fire from yesterday's jump rope workout. Eeyouch. I keep stretching them and they keep hurting.
Also, I think I might have made an actual friend. This friend stuff is hard work.
