Things are already starting to heat up

Sorry I haven’t been able to post for a few days. We’ve got a serious bug/virus/plague going through my house the last week and I finally succumbed to it. All six of us, including our twins who turned 2 today, have been on death’s door, and it’s been brutal. Whenever I get sick like this, and granted it’s rare, I’m always grateful it doesn’t happen during the season because I’d be absolutely screwed if it did.
