I have been down sick the last week and a half. Don’t know what I caught, but it kicked my ass and left me wheezing, weak and dizzy on the sofa for days. At first, upon returning home with this bug, I thought I would sleep heavily over the weekend and be good enough to travel on Monday (last Monday!) but it took until today, a week after that, to be good enough to even get in the car and go to the store. And frankly, I’m mostly wiped out after the store trip. I had to call in sick to work; I haven’t missed work due to sickness in over four years. Not that I haven’t been sick, but it has always conveniently happened on a weekend, holiday or vacation. This wasn’t even the fun kind of sick where you could catch up on books, movies or video games. It was a miserable, laid out, feverish, horizontal-only, snooze and hack fest. Yuck. Not so much fun. Slick was quite solicitous and took care of me, bringing me DayQuil, NyQuil and many tissues. Unfortunately, I may have infected him since he’s started to feel draggy now, too. Sorry, lover!
Spooky and her lump continue on. The lump is just enormous; her time is short. But for now, she still enjoys the typical Spooky things: treats, oat grass, more treats, napping on Slick’s lap or snuggled up in his arm.
I hope you are all well.
