When It Rains

It rained and rained and rained all weekend. Perfect weather for staying home to write holiday cards and bake. Except I woke up Saturday with swollen glands and soreness when I swallowed. Eek! I thought I had bested those germs last week?!

I’m home from work today because the sleep I got was sweaty, feverish, and intermittent. I was apparently snoring so badly (thanks mucus!) that Mr. Darcy had to sleep on the couch. I feel pretty wrecked this morning and am going to attempt to take it easy.

Except that a new tenant is reporting fleas in her apartment and there is a leak in the basement and there are multiple noise complaints about a particular couple in a particular unit and the front door isn’t latching every time it shuts and. . . and. . . and. . . Mr. Darcy was a dear and went into work late so he could get flea bombs and set them off. I’m dealing with the other stuff today as energy permits.

I’m half-way through my cards and baking but not sure I can muster the enthusiasm or energy to finish either today. The couch beckons.

Here’s some holiday cheer for you:

  1. I’m sorry you’re not feeling so hot, but here’s hoping the germs vacate your premises soon and very soon. Also, that it stops monsoon raining here soon, too. I miss my trails.

  2. Hi, I realize this comment is about a week late but let me know if the flea problems continue. I had a big problem last summer and learned a thing or two about fleas.

    Glad to hear your cold is passing, that sucks when you have so much to do and sick on top of it all. Ugh.
