Out of the house, finally…, power interruptions… and (a little) more

I made it out of the house yesterday for the first time in almost a week. We went into town, but I still wasn’t feeling the greatest.

I guess what I thought was a cold turned out to be the flu strain that’s been going around. Since I didn’t go to the doctor, I don’t know for sure. I was planning to go yesterday if I wasn’t significantly better.

Ran a fever for several days and was pretty much out of it round the clock. Slept a lot. Not much coughing, which is funny, because the main thing I’m left with now is a cough.

Haven’t looked at much online until yesterday.

We’ve lost power at least three times today. The generator is sitting ready just in case.

According to the National Weather Service, we’ve had somewhere between 2.5 to 4 inches of rain today and our county is in a flash flood warning. Fortunately, we live on top of a ridge so don’t have a problem with flooding. There’s still a lot more rain to come, I think.

With being sick and all of this rain, it’s hard to get some of the stuff done outside that I wanted to do during this time off.

I go back to work three weeks from today and the contract job will go until the end of August.

    Oh, I hope you are feeling well soon. That really stinks about the flu. I just heard last night on the news that the flu shot this year really hasn’t been very effective for the strain of flu that is going around. Stay safe warm and dry. We are expecting snow in the next couple of days (again). I’m hoping this is the last of it for the season. I’m always optimistic before I should be. LOL.

    My family had some illness but appeared to be two different things. My little one had fever one day and then it ended with a bit of a cough but no major congestion. It was odd. I never got sick. I am very thankful. 🙂 Hope you feel better. I think we all are hoping for a weather changes…

    Mike – I hope you make a speedy recovery. It too have been feeling unwell for the last week or so, but I don’t envy you having flu – it’s horrid.

    Thanks all,

    I’m feeling pretty much back to normal (now), but Karen is under the weather a bit. She doesn’t have the flu, “just” a cold, but it’s enough for her to cancel out of a meeting she had planned to attend today.
