Yesterday, as I mentioned we made some progress on the lighthouse Lego set that was one of E5N1's Christmas gifts (actual lighthouse is still pending but the orca is pretty spectacular). This morning, I successfully got myself up and off to work. While I was there, Exile #2, Exile #4 and E5N1 managed to beat our new cooperative game, Pandemic (on the easiest difficulty setting). This was after something like five failed attempts by Exile #2 and me - with and without the kids assistance.
I can't help wondering if I was the problem!
