Furlough Friday

The daughter had a great idea.

I was on yet another furlough day (so far we've had three).
It was Friday.
The national fair arrived not so far away from our city the day before.

Yes, she's pregnant.
No, she couldn't ride any rides.
But, she was craving fair know- nachos, corn dogs, cotton candy, funnel cakes...
Need I say more?
We laughed, shared most of the food from the above list...walked around, looked at the fun fair sights...and sweated profusely. (It was SO HOT.)
But it was fun.
I could not resist taking her photo with her lunch many people did that to me years ago when I was pregnant with her...I felt I should return the favor. Nice, huh?

Not long after that excursion, I got a terrible cold and spent the rest of my really long weekend in my pajamas resting (coughing, sneezing, hacking, and trying to breathe!)
Monday was a holiday....still in pajamas...thought I might be able to risk returning to school on such luck...came home...more pajamas...all the while still trying to breathe...and not sound like I should be wearing a hospital surgical mask.

Really, I am better. And already it is almost the weekend again. How time flies when you are not at work. Hope your week has been a healthy and happy one.

My goodness she is positively glowing isn't she? That's a gorgeous photo. Sounds like you had a wonderful day together. Bad news about the cold though. Hope it clears up soon. I felt awful this afternoon and my first thought was 'I don't have TIME to be sick!'...took a panadol and seem ok for the moment......
This furlough business is very peculiar. Is it related to the GFC?
