It never fails. My husband steps on a plane for a work trip and something fails at home.
Electronics, appliances, cars, you name it, something decides to blow.
This time, the oil light came on in the car and my son has conveniently decided to come down with something. It started with a low grade fever and cough and congestion. I kept him home and took him to the doctor for the dreaded F test. As in FLU test.
I’m holding down the fort, trying to keep any germs from spreading to myself or my daughter. Sanitizing EVERY surface. She and I both had our flu shots this season. My son did not. He usually rebuffs any mention of a shot and so this year it slipped. My daughter has asthma and her lung doctor really pushed for her to get it. So we did.
My son balked and didn’t want it and I let him pass.
Now I wish I hadn’t.
I can’t get him the shot while he’s sick and if he’s already got it, it is past help. Good job, mom!!
Lesson learned for next season.
My hubs never gets the flu shot so he is on his own in that department. You know how men are with doctors, they have to be on their death bed to go.
Even though several of his co workers have come down with the flu!!
So, we’re watching episode upon episode of Spongebob Squarepants, playing Minecraft, reading, and generally staying put. I got the oil topped off in the car and will let hubs schedule the regular service that it probably needs soon.
This week can’t go by fast enough!!!
Luckily there’s no snow in our forecast!
