  • Mood:


This particular flu bug seems to be following the usual pattern. It's been about 36 hours since I first started feeling queasy. My fever is gone, I can keep down 7-up and lime Jello without any trouble, and in a little while I'll break open the saltines that Cat brought home. I dozed or outright slept for a little more than 18 hours out of 24 yesterday. The really annoying part is that I missed the due date on a credit card payment. It's not the end of the world -- really, all it means is a service charge and that I have to be careful about the next few -- but it's aggravating nonetheless.

On the good side, Cat has gone out of her way to make me comfortable and Thena has spent lots of time in my lap. On the whole I'm ready to not be sick anymore.
