We certainly got more than we bargained for on Halloween. Mr. Crafty World, Our Favorite Boy and Girl, all came down with 'flu. Is it the dreaded H1N1? I couldn't tell you. They all felt lousy, lousy, lousy. Apparently 99.3% of 'flu cases in our area are H1N1, so that's a good indicator. It kind of takes the pressure off of whether or not to get "the shot", once it becomes available to us again.
For some reason I have escaped the illness, which is totally bizarre as I've been around all three sick people for over a week. Our Favorite Girl even coughed right into my mouth accidentally when we were about to have a hug. The only thing I can think of is that I must have some kind of immunity to it. I don't feel great, but I don't feel like I have 'flu. I did a little bit of internet research, and it turns out the 'flu strain that went around in 1987/88 was a strain of H1N1. I remember having that 'flu, and how sick I was. So, maybe that's why I'm not flat out on my back right now.
While not sick, I am exhausted because I haven't had a full night's sleep in a week, and I'm worried about my kids. I had to take them back to the doctor today, because they are not getting better, and I seriously thought I was going to lose it. It would have been one of those embarrassing, weepy kind of melt downs; all because I was so relieved we only had to wait 10 minutes to see a doctor. Anyway, thankfully that didn't happen, and we procured some antibiotics for the kids so hopefully this will cure what ails them on top of this 'flu virus.
Needless to say there has not been much craftiness going on in my world. I managed to make two Christmas cards and some tags in the space of 2 hours yesterday. Before I got too tired I made the kids some comfy loungy pants, because I knew they would be spending a lot of time on the couch. Last night I had a go at Hardanger, so stay tuned for that because it's turning out well so far.
The weather has warmed up considerably, which is nice considering we had our first snowfall just a few days ago. The kids will most likely be home for this next week as well, so it would be nice if we could get a few short walks in. Everything looks better once you have had some fresh air.
Until next time, stay well!
