Influenza Bugs and A Sad Event

The influenza bug hit our household this week. Two of us came down with the bug and it hit pretty hard. We are finally feeling on the mend, but the cough just won't let go very easily. It's a good thing the guest bedroom was ready for use. This is the first time in years I've slept in a different bed, but needed to so as to keep the bug from my husband. So far so good, he hasn't come down with the symptoms yet.

Monday brought a lot of sadness to our household as well. As my husband was dealing with the fact that both of the "girls" in the house were sick, he was hit with another blow.
Tom takes Shadow, our dog, for a walk almost every morning. This gives the dog the much needed exercise that he needs. Shadow has had a bad habit of treating cars as if they are a toy - he likes to play chicken with them. He lost the game this time. Shadow was hit by an unsuspecting driver when he didn't make it around the front of the car in time. He was a handful of a dog - still mostly puppy, but we loved him and he will be missed greatly.
