Bob and I have gone all winter without getting any of the nasty bugs that have been going around, but they finally caught us. We both had fever, chills, coughing, and Bob had a bad headache and backache. Needless to say, we didn’t enjoy any of the beautiful weather over the weekend. Bob got up Monday morning and went to the doctor, which showed me just how bad he felt, because he will never go to the doctor. I took his normal role and refused to go, I didn’t feel like I had it as severe as Bob does and I didn’t think the doctor would give me any medicine so I stayed home.
