Doc said "Yep, you've got the flu. Go home and sleep it off. Give me $20."

For what it's worth, he's pretty sure it's not a weird tropical disease or a voodoo curse.

Still wiped out but feeling a bit better each day. Good thing, because I have a new pet sitting job and a new proofreading project starting tomorrow.

No rest for the wicked (or the cootified) !

Our February Christmas with Pete's old man was trimmed down to a diner visit because the flu took out half the family. Feel better Glinda!

Thanks for your good wishes, everyone. I can't remember the last time I got the flu . . . I sure don't remember getting slammed so badly. The latest complication (started yesterday) is conjunctivitis. Yay.

Today should be interesting. One of my pet sitting clients is out of town for a month (Costa Rica), and I'm job-sharing their visits with another pet sitter. She got the first week, during which time the client's home was buried in a foot and a half of snow. This wouldn't typically be a problem for my 4WD truck, except this particular client lives on a very steep private road (not plowed) way the ever-lovin' fuck on top of a local mountain.

The other sitter has only been able to get up to the house a few times in the past week (she's got a little SUV, but no 4WD). Says the closest neighbor has been going to check on the cat when she hasn't been able to get through. Yesterday, the other sitter actually walked up the mountain. Jesus, God.

There's no way I can do that, given my current state of health. I just hope my truck can plow through whatever's up there now. Wish me luck.

The good news is that it's raining like it's the end times right now, so hopefully the rain is busting up some of that snow. The possible bad news is that it's 38 degrees here and there's no telling what the temp is up on top of that mountain.

I went to the Container Store today, got everything I wanted, and still stayed under $100.

Then I got a 15% off coupon to come back, which is great because it turns out there is more I want.

I once bought some shelves off Craigslist, and I needed replacement parts, and they had them at the Container Store, and when I went to the container store, the shelves that everything in the store was on were the kind of shelves I was buying parts for.

I was like yo dawg i herd u like shelves
