Uuuuuggghhh. I'm sick.
Over NYE, The Peanut was very sick and contracted croup.
Here is a shot of her, having her temperature taken for
the umpteenth time but snuggled on Uncle Tommy's lap, a week ago today.
I feel the same as she looks.
Glassy-eyed and a little miserable.
I really hoped the extra packets of Emergen-C I took these last few days would get me through the germies, but no such luck. Besides, LOTS of people are sick right now. Matter of fact, I guess Duluth (pop. ~80,000) has closed some of its schools because over 1/2 of the teachers are out sick!
I just hope Tom doesn't get it. If he can stay on top of his needed sleep, he can usually out-sleep most any germs. But, he hasn't been home in over 24 hours. Yesterday, the man who was supposed to work last night got fired, and since Tom was the only manager on-site . . . well, guess who had to work an additional 8 hours until 1:00 AM, shuttling drunks home? ("At least they were happy drunks", he said!)
And, because getting off work at 1:00 means getting home at 2:30 . . . only to get up 3 1/2 hours later at 6:00 . . . obviously it made WAY more sense for him to stay. Me thinks I need to get a permanent overnight bag - and perhaps an extra shirt - together which he can keep in his office for just these situations.
