flu season

I’m sorry for not posting in so long!

We’ve been sick, which I posted before.  Banjo Man suffered a major allergy attack and sinus infection that began in Texas.  I came down with the sinus infection/airplane bug on January 1st.

It seemed to last forever.  I rarely get colds or sinus things. We have a mercury filled glass thermometer, for heaven’s sake!  And it took me until two days ago to find it.

Last Thursday I felt like a normal person (who desperately needed to wear makeup!) and took my mother for an afternoon of errands and lunch.  Lovely and fun and so nice to get out of the house!

Until Saturday morning, when THE FLU descended upon me, ruining all of my weekend sewing plans.

Yep.  The flu, for which I got a shot last month.

Three days later I am still in bed, but at least I can type here on the Kindle this afternoon.

Three days later Banjo Man has been stricken with the same flu, so we will be rationing the ginger ale until my wobbly self can get dressed and drive to the mini Mart.

This might be the perfect time to try Amazon’s Prime Pantry!  And splurge on a fancy digital thermometer. I have a feeling we’re going to need it.
