I'm Still Here, Barely

I just realized that I hadn't posted last week's recipe (it was still in draft form) and also realized that I didn't have one in the hopper for last night.

Well, I've been sick.  I felt it coming on over the weekend and it really gained steam on Monday.  The problem was (and is) that Mrs. BA is in New York overnight on a work trip and I'm alone with the boys.  Luckily I have the best friends and neighbors a Brave Astronaut could ask for.

Today, we got LBA off to school and Mrs. BA took SoBA to school before heading off for her train.  Tonight, my good neighbor (for whom last week / this week's Butterscotch Pudding recipe is destined) called me and asked if there was anything he could do.  He picked up LBA from school at the end of the day.

The MtJ family, coming off their own bouts of illness, picked up SoBA and brought him home.  They have also volunteered to help out again tomorrow.

What I don't understand is I got a flu shot.  I don't think I have the flu.  But I really would like to feel better again someday.

The flu shot is only 62% effective this year--so you may have gotten a strain they didn't include. Or you weren't fully immunized--it has to develop--before you were exposed? Or you have something not the flu that you got because, you know, people. You mix with the people. Get well soon!

Anna, I did weather the storm. I like to get flu shots, LBA and SoBA being the little petri dishes they are.
