Two-hour delay

The snow has caused a two-hour school delay, so I'm still in my bathrobe at the usual bus time. Geeky Girl has a nasty cough, so I've decided to drag her to work with me, like Scrivner. She's had croup a few times in her young life and when she gets a cough like this, it freaks her out because she feels like she can't breathe. So, even though she doesn't have a fever, I'd rather be there for the freak-out. She does well when I remind her to breathe through her nose. We just ran out of cough medicine and I'm planning to swing by the drug store on the way to campus and get some more, plus some snacks and maybe a coloring book to get her through the day.

This will be the first time in a long time I've taken the kids to work with me. I could stay home, but I have quite a few things on my plate and Friday's a slow day so it should be fine. Plus, we're recording our very first podcast today! Hooray! We're calling it "Click and Double-Click." It's a tech-help "show." We wanted to prove the usefulness of podcasting so we decided to last week that we were just going to do it. I'm pretty darn excited about it.

I'm going to have to get ready soon even though the bus won't be here for two hours because I have to shovel the walk and the driveway (Mr. Geeky being out of town and all). Let's hope I don't keel over because I'm not in the best of shape these days.
