The Flu Cometh....

...and it has knocked my wife for a loop. She has been in bed for three days now, sleeping most of each day away, or at least resting most of the day. My wife is of the sort who usually shrugs off a cold, or other ailments, and just keeps going. Not this time though. She is tired, achy all over, has a runny nose, is coughing some, has a sore and hoarse throat, and I think was feverish. Of course this could be a mega-cold, but I figure its the flu the way it has knocked her out of commission.

Oh well, I am left with doing the laundry and shopping this weekend, no big deal. I have to head out to Home Depot, so I may as well also stop by Costco or BJ's to pick up some groceries. It is always a bit of a battle in either of those two mega-grocery stores just getting around the aisles on a weekend, and then more of one trying to get through the checkout lines. So I guess what I am saying is that I had best get my butt in gear and go to the stores. Then when I get back, maybe I'll make her some tea and or some soup to perk her up a bit. Not that she does that for me when I am sick, but what the heck, after all she is still my darling.

Later for you,
Glenn B

just remember that chocolate cures everything!

I'm sorry to hear and say, but it does really sound like flu and may last about a week. YUK!

hope she's better soon! Vit C and Zinc really do help some, humidifiers are good and lots of extra love and TLC from hubby should do the trick!
