I do have Net Flix. Perhaps this evening or tomorrow I will do just that. Thank you for the suggestion that will hopefully prevent me from going completely insane. I know there is no hope for half of me, but hopefully we can salvage some of my sanity *LOL*.

However, as she pointed out no time is a good time. I guess the good side of it is, it waited till school was out. I am having a real tough time with that whole resting thing. I need to be up doing something because the unfortunate thing is that life doesn’t have a pause button. Christmas is coming whether I am ready or not. The bad part is that no matter what I do whether it is in the quarantined bedroom or not it will have to be redone when I am not contagious anymore and therefore is counterproductive. I will leave the coffee alone for a few days.

But 3 or 4 more days of flu aren’t going to be very good regardless of what you miss or don’t miss. There is a lot of it going on up here too So far we haven’t gotten it here, but we’re definitely not out of the woods as they say. I am hoping Patti doesn’t get it because usually stuff like that are set backs for her, even a little cold can set her back some. Which she was threatening to start up with one the other day, but yesterday and today she seems better, so maybe more of a scenes aggravation than anything. Well you know the routine Josh. Rest and plenty of fluids, preferably nondiretic fluids, so leave the coffee alone for a few days, or if you drink some then drink nondiretic fluid behind it so you don’t deplete what you have in your body and of course let it run it’s course. When you brake a good sweat you will know you are starting to brake the sickness itself. The fortunate thing is that your flu will not pass from you through Audio-pals land. But neither will our’s when we get it. At Fault hasn’t figured out a way to engineer the passing of human viruses via internet, just computer ones perhaps.

We decided that a trip to the clinic was in order when my wife took my temperature on the forehead and got a reading of 106.5 degrees farenheit. She took it again using an oral thermometer and got a temperature of 101.5. She said we were def. going to the doctor. Well, after along wait in the waiting room wearing a mask on my face I was seen. The first thing the nurse did of course was vitals and then swabbed my nose for the flu test. The flu is what I have ladies and gents. The temperature at the doctor’s office was 101.3. They took my temp using an ear thermometer. So, the doctor, she said I should keep using my home remedy stuff. She prescribed me a cough suppressant and Tamma Flu. Before anyone asks, I did get the flu vaccine this year. Unfortunately, the doctor said, the vaccine was for a different strain of the flu that is hitting everyone this year. I am not sure which strain they vaccinated for, but I do know that I have strain A. She said that I can expect to be contagious for at least another 3 days. So, I am quarantined in the bedroom.
