Influenza A

I was officially diagnosed with Influenza A last Friday but it's been since the Friday before that I've been dealing with Influenza A. My son caught it first and then me and that's left us both down and out for over a week now. Never mind the week before with strep throat.


We've mostly been hanging out, watching movies, and keeping quiet to recover as quickly as possible. I'd lived through most of it without going in to the doctors so there wasn't anything they could do for me other than cough syrup with codeine. So, until it runs its course, I'll be slow in getting anything done. So much for any fundraisers getting off the ground.


The weather has been gorgeous but being sick, it made it even harder to get anything done. I'd wanted to do a few things but not having much energy squashed those ideas. But I had to keep reminding myself that this is February! It's not mid April, it's mid-February and we shouldn't be experiencing this type of weather...not yet anyway. I've already heard and seen a robin and the geese have been flying overhead for the past week straight. It's fun to watch the geese but I'm a little surprised.


Hopefully this isnt' a sign that spring/summer will be here sooner than expected. We need the moisture and I am not ready for another drought.


But the weatherman is calling for the temps to drop back to normal and another snowstorm on the way. I have been ignoring the weather because it's been so nice but I think I better pay attention so I know if I need to stall anyone so they don't get chilled.


I'm playing catchup at the paying job after being gone for half the week. I did bare minimum on chores and that's going to bite me in the butt. But when you're the only one caring for the horses even when you're down and out with a flu, you do what you have to and make up for it later.


So I guess we'll see how the week progresses. Here's to hoping no one else gets sick.
