Trifecta!

The good news is that ALL three of my Mangine kiddos currently have they same symptoms-- fever, crabbiness, general irritability, crying, whining, etc, etc, etc. Since they all have the same symptoms, I know it's likely a virus and feel good about waiting it out for a few days.

The bad news is that ALL three of my Mangine kiddos currently have they same symptoms-- fever, crabbiness, general irritability, crying, whining, etc, etc, etc.

Didn't have ANY power today until about 5:45PM. Which is ironic because we just spent a GREAT deal of money on an inverter and batteries so that we could have power nearly 24 hours a day without shelling out $12.50 per day in diesel. Apparently it was not hooked up correctly, so for the last week we've had less power than we've ever had here in Jacmel. And then the "Inverter Boss" also messed up the wiring so we couldn't use our EXPENSIVE (also new) generator to power the house either. Woo Hoo! Party on! I was already behind on emails, now it's just ridiculous. I am sorry if I owe you an email. Soon. Tomorrow? It's fixed (ish) now. Although we still can't use the generator. They say Monday it will be fixed. So here's to hoping EDH (city power) stays on and the inverter stays working.

Nick's at a Board (Bored) meeting from early today until late tonight... so the other bad news is that I had three feverish children with no fans and no dad to pawn them off on when I can't take the whining any more. I am currently feeding said children kettle corn for dinner and letting them watch "The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement." For about a week now Josiah has called it "The Princess Diarrhea." When we finally got power today Nia said, "We should probably watch The Princess Diaries since Josiah calls it The Princess Diarrhea and he has diarrhea." Seemed logical to me.

But I got to go because they are getting full of kettle corn (as I made THREE batches), and it's about to get loud again...
