Is bubonic plague still around?

We might have it. Well, if it includes a runny nose, itchy eyes, and an overwhelming lack of energy. Or it might be the worst case of allergies ever.

I keep trying to decide what this is, it acts like allergies, except for the energy drain. We had a couple of really bad days with it, and now it is just hanging on. It has been loafing around our house for at least a week. Making our noses run, kicking off our asthma, creating crankiness in our usually happy household. (You thought I was talking about the kids there, but really I am the guilty, grumpy party).

Our little Corgi believes that he is the kid's nurse. He has been hovering over them for the past week. Isn't he the cutest?

For myself, mental focus is not my friend. I can't remember anything, and I get lost in my own thoughts mid sentence. Which is super awesome when you homeschool and your kids look to your for their education. I keep "coming to" at the school table with two little faces looking at me curiously, unable to remember what I was saying. I have a mild headache and I am ready for bed at about 5pm. Which is a ton of fun since the kids don't go to bed until 7:30pm.

We have to get better. really. In the meantime, we have to get out of the house. I have no idea on what the social rules are for something this ambiguous? I know the rules for fevers, or for vomiting etc. But what are the social rules for something like this? any advice?

Hmmm, I have no decent advice or rather I suppose its not very useful at this late point. :P Generally thought when I feel bad at all, I go stealth until I feel better. I'm usually very quiet when ill so I figure it's better to spare folks the awkward silence than to try and be social. But I'm odd.
