Thank God for Jon Stewart and the Daily show he went on Crossfire and called Tucker Carlson a Dick in this little tidbit from Salon. Journalists seem to have forgotten they're supposed to be vetting the truth, not letting talking heads scream at one another and call it journalism.

Eric made it through the day at school today without spiking a fever, so yaay, Eric. I met up with him and Rich and we went for half-priced-dinner at johnny D's. A very nice day. Eric wouldn't eat his quesedillas until they were very cold. But he had a few bites.

Poor Eric. They sent him home again with a fever, and this time I had Rich take him right to the doctor. Turns out he had an ear infection. The doctor was surprised, as kids with ear infections usually complain a lot more. I had a feeling it was his ears bugging him. But he's getting a couple teeth, so I wasn't sure. Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in ASAP, and we'll all be sleeping better. I'm still in a bit of a fog. I went to bed at 9:30 last night. He woke me up at midnight, exactly six hours from the last dose of ibuprofin.

So, he's started his 10 day round of antibiotics. He should be right as rain at this time tomorrow.

In other news, Rich is going to Syracuse the last week of October. I might try to go with him to scope out the area.
