I am sick. I never get sick! Somehow I picked up a flu. Luckily, not the kind of flu that affects the stomach, but the one with fever/chills, achy joints, and a sore throat. Between the 36 hours of 7 pm Wednesday through 7 am Friday, I was awake for about 4 of them.
I do not understand how this could have happened. In the 8 (almost 9) years I have worked at my current job, this is only the second time I have had to take a day off of work due to illness. I expected to get sick when Thomas would bring something home from one of his patients, but he wasn't even here when this happened. I am just baffled!
Needless to say Thomas's homecoming did not go as planned. The parrots, especially Rocky and the greys, were very happy to see him, though I didn't get any pictures of this as I was heading to bed with a fuzzy mind.
I am feeling better, and hope to be back to 100% by the end of the weekend.
In closing, here are a couple of pictures of Calypso taken Wednesday but not posted until today. I was cutting up the lizards' food for them, when Max started dancing around and saying "want some!" She did not want any of the lizards' greens, but Calypso did!
Hope everyone is doing better than me -- I'm off to bed again!
