March 1, 2007

Well, some sort of nasty virus snuck up on me Tues pm/Wed am.  I’ve been down and out with nausea, vomitting  and a fever.  I felt so awful I couldn’t even get on the computer (and that’s unheard of!).  I’m better today, just feel like I’ve been hit all over with a baseball bat.  I have now used up all my sick time at work, so time off for Steve’s upcoming surgery will be without pay.   On the positive side, I did manage to get 3 weeks worth of lesson plans written on Tuesday before all this hit.  And, it appears Steve’s sinus infection is clearing up.  We’re praying he doesn’t catch whatever I had, or the surgery will need to be postponed.  

Farm news: my husband tells me all the animals are OK.  Jugs are set up in the barn for lambing.  All we need to do now is hang the feeders, since he will be on lifting restrictions post-op.  Lots of work to get done this weekend!  We’re praying for lambing to hold off several days.  My brother in law will be here house/farm sitting, but has no experience with lambing, and we’d rather he not have to learn the hard way!
