Hi there. I'm back, but just barely. This H1N1 has knocked me for a loop. I don't remember the last time I was this sick for this long. I've been in bed asleep or curled up on the sofa ignoring the kids since last Wednesday. I've left the house twice in the past week. I'm a recluse by nature, but this is a little much, even for me.
My head is still stuffed up, and I'm still running a bit of a fever, which is rare for me. But I don't feel quite as much like death warmed over as I did on Saturday, which was the worst day. I haven't eaten much in the past week and have probably lost the last five pounds of pregnancy weight that was hanging on, but I wouldn't recommend this as a diet plan.
B has kept the house and kids going, mostly. He's done lots of cooking and bathing of kids and bed-time stories, but no cleaning. Which is fair I guess - there's only so much you can ask of a man.
But now it's time for me to stop lolling around and get out of bed. I've decided I'm going to kick this bug once and for all through sheer willpower and determination. Because that always works.
Get your H1N1 vaccine when they come available. You do NOT want this bug.
