So, we'll move on for now.
Emily is sick. I'm sick. John was sick. Kate was sick. I guess it was inevitable. I had a date with a new friend today to go to the Science and Tech Museum but had to cancel. I'll also have to cancel our chiro appointment which probably isn't a bad thing given that driving across Ottawa today will be a nightmare due to.... you-know-who.
Obama is the big news here today. He lands around 10:30 and leaves around 6:30 I believe. The time in between will be a complete frenzy in Ottawa of road closures and hoards of people trying to catch a glimpse of him.
No, you can't.
We've been told that the best chance is to go to Parliament Hill where, if the mood strikes him, you might get a wave from a car but there is no plan for him to show his face. Instead, people are just celebrating his arrival with concerts, marches over bridges and the like. Which I think is very cool. I'll be at home listening to the radio or watching the CBC when I get the chance.
I have a lot of posts swimming in my head that I need to get down. I'm determined today to do some of that while my sicky languishes in front of Treehouse or lays in bed. However, I have to also spend time working on a new baking order. I've been contracted to do a birthday cake, something I swore I would never do. Today I'm making cupcakes and doing a trial run on the cake. I hope it turns out better than some of my other birthday cake attempts (Dora and the sushi cake excepted).
