Well, I didn't escape from the germs. And we didn't escape the weather. Yesterday I was home from work and the boys were home from school. I've got the crud (more acurately known as Influenza). The boys have a 2 hour delay this morning but are back in school after the winter storm of yesterday that left us with 4-5 inches of snow and bitterly cold temps.
I am feeling a bit better today. Yesterday I slept until noon and then just lay around on the couch all afternoon. My most ambitious activity was to throw some chicken into the crockpot for dinner. This morning, I still feel like I've got a brick in my chest and still have a fever but have a bit more energy. Because I still have a fever I'm home again from work. They get touchy about sick employees showing up at the hospital. But since I'm feeling a little better, maybe I'll be able to get to buttons and buttonholes later. We'll see. I was feeling pretty good a while ago and thought I'd load the dishwasher. It wiped me out.
What bums me out is that I actually got the flu shot and still got sick. We're required to get the shot at work but evidently they 'missed' this strain.
But, tomorrow I'm scheduled off (from working Saturday) so hopefully I'll feel better. At least I can take the day without feeling guilty for leaving my co-workers in the lurch.
