Influenza has claimed us as unsuspecting victims. All six of us have been so miserable. It will be two weeks since we first got sick and we are slowly recovering. We started back with school this week, after a week off. We are taking lots of breaks, especially in the afternoon. I have been letting the boys just laze around and watch PBS cartoons. This is the first afternoon I haven't taken a nap. I think my strength is starting to come back. I don't feel so run down. Joel hasn't seemed to fully recover yet and I think he has a sinus infection now. He has an appointment today after work so we'll see what the doctor has to say.
I will be so happy when we get past cold and flu season. It has had us in its grasp way too much this winter. I feel like someone has been sick almost every week since the end of October. I am ready for some relief from playing nurse.
