Life With the Plague

I've been down with the flu since Wednesday. Got hit a bit with it Tuesday night (causing occasional spontaneous rhyming). Have been in bed -- literally -- since noon Wednesday. Poor Robert had it last week this time. It lasts a good 4 days, as far as we can tell, with residual ick-ness lasting much longer.

It's the kind of sick that doesn't even let you enjoy spending the day in bed. No DVD's or magazine reading. Nope. Just cranking up the electric blanket as high as it will go in the hopes that it will compensate for the defective internal temperature regulator. Bleah.

Here's hoping Monday will find things back to normal.
