Yes, it is indeed 4:30 in the morning. And I am up. Have been since about 3:30. I can't blame this entirely on the baby, though, since I am doing my best to hack up a lung. That is the fault of a coworker that wouldn't take a day off despite having the flu. The baby is causing the indigestion that finally drove me to the couch so I can sit up. But overall I am going to blame Dallas ISD, which was the only district left without a decision on school closings when Sergio checked at 3:30.
But they finally came through and SCHOOL IS CLOSED!
There is a child in all of us. I just realized that this statement is both figuratively and literally true of me.
