Apoxalypse Part II

Chie went off to work today, and I stayed home to look after Erika.
After waving Chie off in the morning, I went to have a shower and noticed a rather unwelcome Christmas guest had just arrived (or, should I say returned) - chickenpox. I had a few spots mainly around my shoulder, but they were unmistakably the pox.
I didn't feel physically particularly bad for most of the day, but was filled with a quiet sense of dread having read all the horror stories on the web about how bad it is to get it as an adult.
So Erika and I just stayed in all day, partly because I knew I was now infectious, and partly because it wasn't very nice weather.
In the evening we had spaghetti and (soy) meatballs for dinner - I insisted on cooking because, as I said to Chie, it may the last time I'd be able to for a few days. This prediction turned out to be quite accurate.
