Kevin has gone out of town for eight days, and we are all a bit sad. I am sure he will do brilliant math, which is good for math, but math will have to deal with my being a bit cranky with it. The children and I have taken to my bed, where we have turned the heated mattress pad on and curled up under the covers. We may emerge for food, but otherwise, I think we’re tucked in for the night. Hooray for bed. And heat.
