I've had the flu for the first time in 8 years. YUCK. I had forgotten how horrid it is to be that sick. With no warning I got up the other morning sick to my stomach and with a fever. I spent several days on a diet of RC Cola and dry Cherio cereal. Today I seem to be somewhat better. I kept down Ritz Crackers and applesause. And felt good enough to open the computer. Still haven't felt good enough to go feed the horses. But was able to feed the dogs and cats and shove the dishes from the sink to the dishwasher and turn it on. (Hope I remember to put soap in it.) It will take an extra week to catch up on housework and yard work.
On the plus side - maybe I lost a few pounds.
