The boy is on the couch again. This time he's (mildly) sick and home from school. In middle school, he stayed home from school a lot; sometimes once a week. In high school there's more work to catch up on, so he rarely misses a day. We're having a nice cozy afternoon on a cold day: he's reading The First Men in the Moon and I'm on the other couch with my laptop. I'm trying to do some writing, but am mostly doing work stuff and answering emails. But that's okay - I'm fully Enjoying The Moment.
