Selene is sick again. She was doing better yesterday, and was fine today, but this evening didn't treat her well at all.

Kind of missed most of the plans going on this weekend, which is a bummer. One was even here in Baltimore! Ah well. Hopefully, next week everyone will be hale and hearty and we can get things back on track.

Picked up bebe early today, headed to Bowie to hang out with my parents. (Look, a pic.) Parents are doing well. Agreed to make them a LiveJournal account of their own; need to come up with an amusing name now.

Tomorrow, bebe-ful day (no day care.)
