Martin got sick 2 weeks ago, but only missed one day of school. He's still, however, hanging onto a hollow and startling cough. I got it next and had a full-blown flu with everything except stomach upset, missing a day of work, and working through 3 days in a fog. But so far, no indication that it's traveled down to pnemonia this time (keeping fingers crossed). Karin had it the worst, missing 3 days of school, a soccer tournament, referree time and an innebandy match. She ran a high fever several days in a row and dragged about the house with her fleecy Cubs blanket in tow. She's still coughing too but I plan on kicking her to school tomorrow, come hell or high water.
Or blizzard, which is what it's doing right now.
Anders left Friday with a busload of work colleagues for a long weekend of skiing in the Czech Republic and hopefully managed to avoid the entire contagious mess completely.
I was actually kind of glad that Karin was still sick and running a fever this weekend as it meant we could cancel her participation in sports activities both yesterday and today and take it easy. I had a list of things that needed to be done, as cleaning the house hasn't been a high priority for anyone (hahaha, as if it's anyone else's priority to begin with) and craved some downtime of not needing to go anywhere or do anything for a couple of days. It's been non-stop go-go-go since we returned from the U.S.
So, I'm halfway through re-reading the first book of the Lymond Chronicles and have made major headway on 2 of my big projects, and did get some work done for the day job as well, though not as much as I'd have liked due to the end-of-month Internet dry-up. The kids and I watched several episodes of season 5 of The Big Bang Theory and the house is presentable again. Bills are paid, laundry is completely caught up and we're ready to start a new week.
I don't know about you, but I feel so much better when I'm caught up, on top of things, and have a planned idea of what lies ahead for the week to come.
