I may have mentioned that we have a toddler. A toddler that likes to play in the dirt, play with other children and generally be a kid. That means that a fair portion of our year is spent being sick in some manner. This has been one of those weeks; a general feeling of being ‘off’, needing more sleep and drinking bucket loads. The doctor told my husband that it was most likely a version of flu but since we had our flu shots, we have been saved from the nasty parts.
