Back to work

Oh what fun it is to be at home with the stomach flu. Fun, fun, fun! There we were: four of the five of us, miserable and dehydrated, all too weak to help the others. How lucky my daughter is, away for the week at an aunt's house, visiting with her cousin. I can only hope she escapes the bug.
It's my first day back to work after being out for 2. I am weak, still feeling a little yucky and achy. Seems like my 6 year old bounced back the quickest. He was up yesterday early: playful while the rest of us were lying on the couches, exhausted.
I had to take the high ground and get up and fix soup, keep the carbonated beverages and crackers coming, and do what little housework I could manage. It's my observation that boys and men are a little less able to bounce back from this stuff than we ladies. Or so it seems....
But here I am, nearly halfway through my work day. I feel like I could fall asleep at my desk. Maybe I will.....
More later.
