So we all caught the cold/flu/thing that is running around the North Texas Region this week. Ford and Alexander have been sniffling and coughing for a while, but it was last Tuesday that hit me hard. I was at work and around noon I started shaking uncontrollably. I was freezing and had to go sit in my car at lunchtime to warm up. I didn't want to go home, because I had the responsibility of running the Planning and Zoning Commission meeting that night. But eventually around 2pm I went home. After collapsing onto the bed I didn't move again for another four hours.
Chest burning, head burning, fever and body aches - I couldn't really tell if it was the flu or not. I didn't feel nausous or anything. But I stayed home Wednesday through Friday. I have never taken three days for personal sick leave before. Then Meredith came down with the same thing on Friday. At least I was able to be here for the weekend and help her through it as well. I don't think she got is as bad as I did.
I was able to do a little (very little) work from the new laptop at home. I mostly watched episodes of The Office and some really trashy movies by Quentin Tarantio and Robert Rodriguez.
