A little flu in your eye?February 19, 2008
Sorry to have left you hanging with the last post. I was going to come back and post about my wonderful valentine weekend at the beach. Tony took Thursday, Friday and Monday off work, so we thought we would have a nice time looking for shells, riding our bikes (I got a new one)(thanks to the recommendation of Claudia)(and…yes, I will blog with a picture of it when I am feeling better) and all of those fun things we love to do when we ge free babysitting. We were even planning on having a date night at a fancy schmancy restaurant.
Except for one little thing.
Madeleine got the flu. Then Sierra. Then me. Fever, chills, aches pains, cough.
We are all recovering, but we didn’t go anywhere over the weekend and Tony spent his vacation taking care of the family. The next time he gets sick (the weekend before,) I am sleeping on the couch as I swear he must have coughed in his sleep and I got it.
Also, next year I am getting a flu shot. I would much rather deal with being slightly sick from the flu vaccine then getting the flu again. I have read online a lot of people are out with the flu now. It is a bad year for ye ole influenza bug.
Tony’s boss said to him last week, “Tony, when I look in your eyes, I see the flu bug.”
It is our big joke, since it happened around valentine’s day. “When I look into your eyes hunny…” Said all lovingly. “I see the flu virus.”
Sadly, that has left zero time to study for big, looming test on Wednesday. Can someone please prepare me for Membrane Potentials, how vision works, and other sensory physiology information. Sorry again, my knit and fiber blog has nothing related to that… I am hoping to feel better by this weekend so I can get to Stitches West. 🙂
