the Panic run cry
Our in-home weatherman told me that today was probably the last nice day for a while. I hyperventilated and my blood pressure went up. John took the older kids on one last run during nap time and ran into a friend on the trail. Our "friend" told him that it might snow on Tuesday. I hyperventilated and my blood pressure went up. Damaris and Clairvaux love going on runs so much, but missed out on this adventure due to bad colds and coughs. Damaris is usually a very cheerful nap waker. I heard her in her room talking, but suddenly heard the shriek of an orc coming from her bedroom. I knew her head was stuck between the slats or her foot had come off. It was that crazy of a shriek. I sped down the hall like Flo Jo to find Damaris straddling her bed rail looking out the window which allowed her to view the kids coming up the street from the run. She knew she had missed out. She was shaking in fear that her beloved was leaving without her. She screamed, "A RUN. A RUN. Mama, A RUN!" We had to bundle her up to go on a little stroll. She was trying to get ready with her shoes, socks, hat, and coat so fast because she knew John was going to leave her any minute.
