Flu and snow


We’re both sick. I got it first and probably gave it to E. Sorry about that. It feels like a flu, which feels pretty bad. I’ve been knocked pretty flat for the last couple of days. Today I’m starting to feel a little better– at least in the sense that feeling like you fell down four flights of stairs is better than feeling like you fell down five. I had to cancel classes on Friday. My next classes are on Wednesday, and I’m not sure yet whether I’ll be well enough by then, but that brings us to the next problem.

The next problem is snow. We got a few inches of it yesterday, but from Monday into Tuesday we’re expecting a storm to blow through and drop thirty inches or so. Normally, E and I can clear our driveway by ourselves, even after a dump that big, but when we’re both so weak from flu that getting out of bed is a challenge, that’s not going to happen. We’re looking into local companies that do snow removal, but with the storm still several days out it’s really hard to predict when they can be around the clear us out.

So, those are the things making life tough for us right now. It’s relly hard to see how the week ahead is going to go. We’ll get through, of course, one way or another. It’s just a question of how many more classes I will have to cancel, when we will get to the grocery store next, and how much this is all going to cost us in money, sweat, and time.
