+ 0 - 0 | § A less than pleasant night

Alex went to bed early last night with a fever.  It's managed to stay below 102, so it's not as bad as it's been before.  Jack decided to scream inconsolably straight from midnight until about 5:30 this morning.  This takes a toll on many things.  Sanity goes pretty quickly as the screaming goes straight to your bones.  Endurance goes from lack of sleep.  It's hard to be civil to one another when in the thick of dealing with something like that, but in the morning, when things settled out, Kari and I can have the perspective to realize that things said and done have to be taken in the context of when they happened, so everything's all right when the sun rises and the kids sleep.  We still don't know what got "fixed" to make him stop crying this morning, but we've each got our theories.  Here's hoping that we never get a chance again to test these theories.

+ 0 - 0 | § Sickness and a story

It seems that illness has a way of making its rounds through our house.  Alex is sick at the moment, with a 101.3 º fever, as of a few hours ago.  It looks like Jack might be getting a little sick, or perhaps he just never got completely over when he was sick last time.  Kari and I at the moment are free of disease, but that can only last for so long.  It's pretty difficult with Alex, who doesn't really understand the concept of not sneezing on people, or not touching people with dirty hands.  I suppose in time, he'll learn, but for now, we're working on building up our immune systems.

On a lighter note, I have a funny story about a company that I am familiar with that I will just leave unnamed at the moment.  This company decided to celebrate "Safety Day", where they got everyone together, and did some training, but mostly some back-patting about how good things were going with safety.  They even decided to get some mugs to commemerate "Safety Day".  After several hundred customized mugs arrived, the leadership decided to show off the mugs to the safety department.  One of the safety leaders took a look at the bottom of the mug, and saw "Made in China".  This safety leader jokingly said, "I hope that it isn't lead glazed."  (This happened right in the middle of the lead paint on kids toys from china debacle a few months back.)  As it turns out, this company has the capability to determine the composition of the glaze, so they submitted the mug to be analyzed.  As it turns out, yes, the "Safety Day" mugs did have substancial lead in the glaze.  So, all of the mugs had to be used for holding pencils, or other things, other than holding beverages.

+ 0 - 0 | § More pepper

Alex really seems to like pepper, as evidenced in the video from the last post.  We've given him the pepper shaker a couple of other times since then, and he's really enjoyed himself.  This seems to be particularly useful for foods that he doesn't like very much, because he keeps sampling them to see if they get better with the pepper.  Judging by the amount of pepper that he puts on, I would imagine that there really isn't much of the original food taste left.  Occasionally, he goes "Agh agh!" and tries to scrape off his tongue, but on the whole, it seems to make it better.  I do think though that this is going to turn into a problem, fast.  Things like this often do.
