While February was the month of snow....March has been the month of illness. G-man kicked it off, passing it on to Bossy, then relapsing himself. I got sick this past Friday (and have been flat on my back since). And Sassy is starting to cough now...
I called out of work on Friday when I woke up at 3:30am with a 101.5 fever, cough, stuffy nose, upset stomach, and other miscellaneous ailments. While I haven't been formally tested...I think it is a strain of the flu. I dragged myself into work, and when the boss called at 8:30am and heard me...he sent me home. Yeah, I sound that good.
I brought some stuff home with me, so hopefully I can make up a few of the hours. My paychecks have been terrible...between snow days and illness, I have only had 1 full paycheck since early January. I get paid this week, and it is only at 80% (missed one day for my illness, and one for Bossy).
Our budget is screwed up because all the illness has meant buying a TON of medication. With everyone sick, we are going through Dayquil and Nyquil like it is water. Plus, we have bought more "easy" foods since from day to day we don't know who will be eating, or if someone will even have the energy to make anything.
It is a cold week...and there is snow in the forecast. *sigh* I need to get well, and have a nice, warm spring day to air out the house and disinfect everything under the sun! I want to replace all the toothbrushes....do you wait until you are better, or replace now? Or both? Anyone know?
So I haven't forgotten you all....just been out for the count.
