It is now January 11 and I have been sick with the flu for a whole week. The flu shots were not available, so I missed mine this year. Now I am paying for that omission for the second time this flu season. Other than taking my dogs out in the yard, I have been housebound the entire week with all the classic symptoms of the flu.
It must be getting better because now I have contracted cabin fever. At least that is a much healthier disease to have.
