The Plague

It's descended on our house and my place of work apparently. Last Friday I was feeling pretty darn horrible. I drug myself out of bed and said to myself I'd go in for about an hour or so, just long enough to get some pressing things done. Then I look outside and realize I had to clear snow off my truck and said forget it and went back to bed. I spent most of the day drifting between playing an hour of Rai here or there and napping on the couch having crazy fever dreams. I remember a few of them vaguely, mostly bits and pieces. Some of the highlights being:

- Tanking Valkyrie's with the baby and yelling for faster swall spam.
- Continuously mobbing Niff without anything dropping, at all.
- Pushing Theroff off his peco and going to ride away with him running after me yelling "That's my peco!" and me yelling back "You don't deserve her! She's not a peco peco, she's a chocobo!!"
- And a really strange one with lots of people in it, mainly Aana, Lomi, Lion, Vodi, Seil, Strago and Dorlan sitting in a circle staring at each other while Driftwood ran around yelling "you're full of shit" killing Dracula in east Pront.

I blame playing Rai between naps. But I'd wake up with a headache and know if I went back to sleep it would be much worse. Plus daytime TV really kinda sucks. After watching GMA & Ellen there wasn't much else aside from flipping through FoodNetwork. I lucked out with some What Not to Wear on TLC and a few episodes of A Haunting on Discovery and that's about it. I see Cartoon Network is still running marathon sessions of Johnny Test during the day...bring back The Grimm Adventures of Billy & Mandy g'damnit!

Now Ben's sick as hell. He stayed home yesterday and had crazy fever dreams too. This morning I couldn't help but laugh when he was flailing around dreaming and I was trying to wake him up to see if he'd make it to work. He fell out of bed and made this strange moan/grunt noise that had me laughing. He crawled his way back in saying "yeah, laugh it up." Turns out he was dreaming about black bears that could (surprisingly) talk, and they were having a conversation. I thought he was dreaming about ManBearPig or something by the noise he made. XD

Kate was out sick yesterday and Anne's out sick today. The big boss thanked Kate and I and we said it was Anne's fault...she started coughing first. I think he's going to follow us around the office all day with a can of Lysol. Everytime I have a hacking cough that sounds like a lung is coming up he pokes his head in my office an makes an O.o face.

I seriously need to clean the house tonight and tackle Mount Laundry. I think I'll make Zuppa Toscana soup for dinner, I need to stop for chicken broth though. How the hell we ran out of chicken broth is beyond me, I'm like a squirrel stock-piling nuts when it comes to keeping the pantry full. We're out of roaster chickens in the freezer too, grah! Not that it would help much with stock today. I think I'm still confused from being sick, that's my excuse anyway!

Oh yes, there's a dairy that sells raw milk, cheese & farm fresh eggs that's on Ben's way to work! How exciting...I need to slip him some cash and tell him to stop on the way home sometime. Ok well first I need to be nosey and check it out. I miss real farm eggs! We brought two dozen home along with a ton of produce when we went down to visit my folks this summer. My mom's taken to buying produce from the really nice Mennonite couple who have a farm down the mountain. Not sure where she's getting her eggs from with the family uproar and all, but they were darn good...yolks so yellow they were almost orange, and out of two dozen I had 3 double-yolk eggs. That's a baker's dream! I kind of want to look into a CSA share for this season but they're sooo expensive and I'm honestly not sure we'd use all the vegetables we'd get especially since we want to expand the garden this year. I'm hoping for a better crop of tomatoes. With all the rain last year the few heirlooms that we got were too precious to eat any way but raw, so I didn't get a chance to can any. The cucumbers died off on the vine from being water-logged. It left all my canning plans in ruin. Blech.
