Flu meme | From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's books

Sounds about right!

Apologies for missing yesterday’s post. It’s because of the various bugs that the wee one’s been bringing home since her school reopened after the Christmas holidays. Last week we had to keep her home every day but Monday, so that threw a spanner in the works: I wanted to finish editing a book I’ve been ghostwriting; instead, I ended up not even opening the file once. And I even missed a blog post.

Now, both Electra and I have caught whatever Natalie had, so we’re both down. Adding insult to, well, snot (lots and lots of snot!), this ruined our weekend. It might even be the dreaded flu, as the infamous H1N1 variety has been a literal pandemic over here lately, to the point that they closed down the elementary school in our neighborhood for one whole week in a vain attempt to stop it. It’s a good thing all three of us had been vaccinated against it, so the symptoms are pretty mild!

Still, tomorrow’s post has now been scheduled, so normal service is to resume shortly (or, at least, that’s my hope)!
