So I had the flu last week (not confirmed, because my doctor told me not to come into his office and infect everyone else). Symptoms: fever, coughing, no energy, body aches, headache. Bottom line: I was in bed for three days, and probably should have been for longer than that. My two sons were also ill last week, so we had a houseful of germy pain.
That meant that lots of work and family obligations went lacking last week.
Now for the uphill struggle of getting back into the groove.
