This Flu Really Sucks

My husband, son and I are sick with a flu that has lingered, waxing and waning since before Christmas. Now it has hit my son and me particularly hard. My husband has been dragging himself to work in spite of continued symptoms. To top it off, my laptop is sick with malware, so it has an appointment with the Geek Squad this afternoon. I’ll probably be falling behind on my Blogging 101 assignments for the time being. Oh, in case a certain someone reads this post, smoothies are not the answer. Anything but chicken soup, frozen pops, saltines and electrolyte beverages are not welcome.

  1. So sorry to hear you are sick along with your son. I have to say I totally disagree with your commenter that told you that you might as well be sick since January is kind of a dismal month anyway. In my opinion, no one should ever have to be sick. I know we are all sick from time to time and we do our best to stay well. It’s tough not feeling well, and it’s even worse when you have a chronic condition. Additionally, many conditions going on for weeks and not letting up are being discovered to not be the flu. You might want to check with your doc. Take good care of yourself.

    It can be so stressful to have the entire family sick…then tack on computer issues, sheesh!! Take care and get better. Don’t let Geek Squad charge you hundreds of dollars for what is a pretty straightforward fix (especially of it is basic malware).

    Good wishes for health for all in your household!!
    My husband has been sick with pneumonia since Thanksgiving and then the flu since Christmas and in October we were both sick with stomach flu for a full two weeks.
    It has been a horrible fall– sounds like for you, too. I was going to write and tell you that I am still fighting it and just cannot keep up with all you do but I thank you for your tweets, and posts, etc. I am barely able to get a picture together to post weekly. And you have so much on your plate. I wish you all wellness and good health!!!
    P.S. Hope I am not the smoothie proponent.

      No I have a friend who recommended I include smoothie recipes on my Facebook page and insisted he wasn’t joking. I’m no lifestyle or recipe blogger. Nor do I ever intend to be.

    Hope you all feel better. I’ve had a lingering head cold since Dec 29th! Mostly gone now and my symptoms were not severe; maybe it was the flu (but I had a shot). I hope your laptop gets healed quickly!! January is kind of a dismal month anyway, so might as well be sick!
