We spent the whole weekend indoors, as the air quality index never dropped below 500. The air is so awful you can taste it. And it's either made me incredibly sick, or I've come down with the flu, because I could barely move all weekend: headache, cough, chills, chest pain. Plus which, President Obama is due to arrive at post shortly, so my husband is insanely busy working the visit.
So, to recap: working husband, sick mother, 4 children, noone is allowed to leave to house. Ever.
Why, yes, our weekend was heaps of fun.
This morning, it started to thunder, lightning, hail, rain and snow. All at once. And all I could think was: please oh please let a tornado sweep through, too, and clear this nasty air out of here.
