Viruses

It’s been like dueling viruses around here lately.  First, the I-am-sick type, with me, E, and K with this thing that started with cold symptoms but brought the joy of diarrhea with it.  Kayleigh had it the worst and ended up having diarrhea allllllll over the floor in one of the waiting rooms at the hospital when we were there for her kidney ultrasound.  That was horrible, absolutely horrible, it was just all over the floor and she was screaming, etc.  Thankfully it wasn’t on carpet and we were the only ones in that little room.

But what was really stupid was that I was already on antibiotics for my sinuses.  I was having some horrible headaches that I am now sure were sinus troubles and the doc gave me antibiotics to get them to drain.  They are still draining, it’s been weeks now, but I haven’t had that strange headache in almost a week now.  So I think that’s a fair trade.  Those headaches suck.  Really bad.  Whenever I’d lay down I thought my head was going to explode.

Then a week and a day after that, it was a computer virus.  My fault, really.  I wasn’t paying attention and I said “allow” instead of “delete, delete, delete omg delete!”  And within a few minutes it had completely wiped out my hard drive.  Good thing I’m pretty good at backing up and I only lost 2 weeks of email and some pictures I’d taken of a house that I can (and still need to) retake.  But still, a big pain in the butt and once you reformat a computer for the first time, it’s never quite the same.  Got some weird things happening when I reboot that I can’t figure out.  For the most part, just a big inconvenience that makes me feel really stupid.

Had to get the computer back in shape as quickly as possible, too, ’cause tomorrow I get to digiscrap with the wonderful Kate!  Yay!!
