Well, the basement’s drying out again. Looks like no rain for a few days, so that’s good.
We’re headed to Chicago for the weekend to see George Gee. Problem? I have no idea how we’re going to get there. Using I-20 all the way between Des Moines and Illinois is so not appealing. We thought about taking 80 into Iowa City and then heading up to 30 and over, but 30’s closed there, and so is the road between 80 and 30 (which means we also couldn’t use that road to get up to 20). There’s not a whole lot of good options heading south from Iowa City. I can’t get ahold of the DOT folks to ask how one would go from IA City to Chicago.
And Wally has a rash. All over. Red, raised. He says they itch. When it showed up yesterday, I was unconcerned because he had bronchitis last week, and he almost invariably develops a rash after he’s been sick. Apparently, some kids just do that. But this morning, it’s worse. I have been reading that it’s possible to have an allergic reaction to penecillin even days or weeks after starting (or stopping) it, so we’re going with that theory for the time being. I’ve given him some benedryl, and we’ll see if that works, I guess.
