Notes from under a blanket

It had to happen sooner or later: Andrea brought some kind of bug home from the virus farm (as I tend to think of day care) and it’s knocked me out.

Don’t know what particular mini-hooligan is in my system, but it’s causing a low-grade fever, headache, upset stomach, and general aches and pains. So the fun factor is pretty low here underneath the blanket on the couch.

But Tylenol is being taken, fluids are being consumed, and rest is being had, so hopefully the invader will be dispatched before too long.
