In which I fell victim to (more) plague

We’ve had quite a month of being sick around here, what with The Cold That Wouldn’t Get The Hint And Leave Already. But it has appeared for the last week that we were all on top of it once and for all.

Then, yesterday afternoon, the sore throat that had been mildly THERE made a more aggressive appearance. And then the headache. And then my whole body felt sore and tingly which means Uh Oh Fever Time. And yesterday was such a great time to feel like this. I give you three good reasons:

  1. The oldest had his friend over to spend the night which, considering we’re talking about 12 year old boys here, means lots of yelling at the Xbox until all hours of the night. In case you’re wondering, this goes splendidly with a splitting headache.
  2. My nephew came over for pizza. Which means we had actual company. I enjoy when he comes over, we watch movies and hang out. So I pretty much didn’t get to hang at all. Boo!
  3. It was a Friday night. That should say it all right there. Friday nights are sacred. I had mine stolen from me as I lay in bed, all my blankets pulled up to my chin, shivering. I want it back, dammit.

Sigh. So there you have it. I feel mostly better today. I’m having a heck of a time shaking this stupid headache. The sore throat is still there. As long as I can avoid the fever, I think I’ll be good to go. We’ve got a three day weekend here, folks, I’m not about to face it curled up in bed.

Send good health vibes, stat!
