I haven't dealt with a flu/virus with as much tenacity as this one. It came in quietly enough...frank was only mildly sick on Tuesday, but by Wednesday noon, I knew we would have to cancel Jenni's violin lesson. There is no babysitter who wants to babysit a sick kid, and I wasn't gonna make him suffer all the way to town and back. So we stayed home. Then on Thursday I wasn't feeling well, and Lucia was fighting the gunky-eye issue... Friday I managed to go to town and get a few supplies, after eating cold cereal for 3 days, we needed some food. Frank was finally on the mend by Saturday, but still fighting a bad cough. Then Lucia started coughing. And so we stayed home Sunday. I even managed to write a blog post in the morning. But by evening, I was on the couch again. Then yesterday I initially thought I was over it. But by early afternoon, I was curled up in a sunny spot on the couch - wrapped in a quilt. Shaking with feverish chills. It was miserable. Achy. Cold.
I am happy to say that my fever broke last night, and today I am feeling weak and shaky, but definitely on the mend. Unfortunately, now Jenni has it. She has been laying around all day in a blanket, dozing off and on, feverish and miserable.
Meanwhile, My Cowboy has been dealing with his own troubles. He hasn't been feeling tops either, and the wind has been fierce. It blows dirt into his eyes all day long, irritating them. Makin it hard to rope. Today it blew the cover, or lid, off the top of the cake truck's feed bin. It was 40mph, with 80 mph gusts.
