The House At Poo Corner

The food poisoning is slowly getting better, but I decided that the better part of valor was to work from home today. So I logged onto the home computer and the work computer, VPNed into the network, and have sent out a couple of e-mails that roughly boiled down to "Did you know we need to fix this?" I'm now waiting for the responses.

Working at home usually involves leaving the office door closed so that Katie can't get at the computers that I'm working on. Since she and Julie were sleeping quite late today, this wasn't a problem until a few minutes ago when Katie started pounding on the office door, realizing that Daddy must be on the other side. I was feeling like lying down for a few minutes anyway, so I headed off to the bedroom where we attempted to keep Katie from bouncing on my stomach while handing her the various stuffed animals that she demanded be taken off the headboard and given to her.

A few minutes later, she hopped off the bed and started slapping my guitar case, shouting "Poo! Poo!" Well, yes, that is Daddy's problem...

Oh. Pooh!

So Mommy pulled out the guitar and Daddy played "The House At Pooh Corner" for Katie. And now they're off to the park and I'm back at work.
