In addition to the very welcome family guests we had the last couple of weeks, there has been a more recent unwelcome guest at our home. A virus. I don’t get sick very often (all that clean living), but both Kathryn and I have been down with some kind of a virus for the last 10 days. I think we’re on the recovery side of things, but the sinus problems and general bodily weakness due to this thing keep hanging on. We’ve had to renege on a couple of fun get-togethers with people just so we wouldn’t infect them. Like many emotionally-mature decisions, that one isn’t much fun.
I’ve used the down time to get some reading and writing done, but that’s losing its appeal quickly. Cabin fever is setting in.
