Sick Family

I think R. brought it from from work and then I got it and the kids got it. Not the way things are supposed to go. If you travel on airplanes, you're supposed to get sick then. If you have little kids, they're supposed to bring you things from school. From work? Yeesh.

Oh well.

It seems to be upper respiratory -- not a lot of head congestion. Unfortunately, lots of coughing. The kids seem to be sleeping (altho again, they're a little behind me) but I had to prop myself up in order to get any sleep at all last night. No fever or anything like that, which I guess is a good thing.

Please feel sorry for us. We certainly feel sorry for you if you're dealing with this -- and absolutely everyone around here seems to have it, too.

the kindles are here

Both the Touch and the kFires arrived today. Fun! They are small! Also, I sure hope I find a better way to go to the next page in Archived Items than the one I have found because I Am Not Impressed. Doesn't matter -- I just went over to Manage My Kindle on the website and downloaded stuff that way.

I tried an ad supported version of Angry Birds on the kFire and the ads are too intrusive for me (if you are used to FB game ads, they will seem like nothing, but I gave up gaming on FB when I got hooked on iPad games). .99 (ETA: actually, I got some sort of matching discount so it didn't cost me anything. Sweet.) got me the ad-free version and it is pretty and just what you would expect it to be.

I'm going to hide these before the kids get home, because I've only had time to get one updated and I'm not going to have a big fight with the kids over who gets to use the new toy until I have all three ready to go so I can pass them out and insist that if they want to trade they have to do it politely. I'm wondering how much time my husband will spend on the kFire he was so sure he didn't want for himself. These things are _really_ comfortable to hold.
