So How Was Your Weekend?

| 6 Comments | 1 TrackBack
One of the downsides of blogging under a pseudonym is that you can't fully leverage the two parts of your life; I can't use this blog to point out personal things in quite the ways non-pseudonymous bloggers can. I'll crack that a bit to publicly thank the various doctors, nurses, and staff at Torrance Memorial Hospital, where Littlest Guy, our 7-year old, wound up Saturday night with a bad enough case of viral enteritis that he spent the night getting fluids intravenously. TG and I were at dinner at Ann Salisbury's, enjoying her great food and company along with Henry and Mr. and Mrs. Calpundit when Littlest Guy's mother called and we unceremoniously bolted for the exit and the 405.
Middle Guy stepped up, as we called him from the road to get much-needed clothes and cleanup supplies to the parents waiting at the hospital as we drove up from OC. Littlest Guy is much, much better now, and planning on bragging to all his friends that he stayed up until 4:00 a.m. The laundry is almost all done, and none of us have gotten sick, so it looks like we're through this. I didn't get much done yesterday or last night, so I'm way behind on work that needs doing, which means I'll be ignoring blogging for the next day or so. I'll catch up midweek. So public apologies for bailing out to our dinner companions, and again, thanks to the good people at Torrance Memorial for their excellent care of him and all four of his parents.

Welcome to Sacramento from Calpundit
Excerpt: WELCOME TO SACRAMENTO....Back in the dog days of September, here was Arnold Schwarzenegger's proposal for solving California's fiscal crisis:Here is my plan: audit everything, open the books, and then we end the crazy deficit spending.Well, time passed...


I hope he gets well soon!

Glad to hear that things worked out, kids sometimes amaze me. They can be on deathsbed one day, and running around playing the next. Best wishes,


Good to hear the little one's back on his feet. Our whole family's been fighting off strep for the last few weeks, and I know exactly what that parental panic feels like.

Looking forward to your next writings when he's feeling better. :)

Yow. Your weekend was much worse than mine. I hope your next weekend is far better.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

Apology not necessary -- leaving when you heard the news was the right thing to do. I'm sure Ann will be inspired to create another wonderful dinner. And I'm sure the dessert will involve chocolate. ;)

Here are some quick tips for adding simple Textile formatting to your comments, though you can also use proper HTML tags:

*This* puts text in bold.

_This_ puts text in italics.

bq. This "bq." at the beginning of a paragraph, flush with the left hand side and with a space after it, is the code to indent one paragraph of text as a block quote.

To add a live URL, "Text to display": (no spaces between) will show up as Text to display. Always use this for links - otherwise you will screw up the columns on our main blog page.
