In bed with the flu...

I came down with the flu on Thursday night, waking up yesterday feeling like crap. It only got worse during the day, so I came home early and went straight to bed. Achey bones and muscles, runny nose, and a stuffy head. Yuk. I hate the flu.

Once again though, Deidre showed me why I love her. She came home from work, made me a drink of hot water with honey and lemon juice, made sure I was comfortable, and then went out to dinner with some friends. I was going to go too, but stayed home instead. There was no way I was ok to go out. But isn't Deidre wonderful? She's so caring.

I know, I'm sure it's making you sick right now. But it's great to have someone in your life who cares about you and shows you by their actions. It's still a relatively new experience for me.

It's election day today, and I found out a couple of days ago that it's illegal to broadcast - via any medium including blogs - any comment that may influence how someone votes. So I won't.

I will say, however, that this is the very first election in my entire life where I've been interested enough to research the different parties and their policies, in order to work out who I most want to vote for, including where votes for smaller parties might end up. It's been a fascinating experience.

Anyway, I'm going to watch a movie now on the laptop. Oh yeh, I remembered last night that the two laptops are networked with 2 network cables joined together, to give it extra reach. I found out last night that the cables reach to my bedroom from the lounge room, so I'm still connected while in bed. Who needs wireless? Hehehe
