We were supposed to have Christmas today down at my parents’. My grandma is there already, my sister and her family, and my brother is on his way. We, on the other hand, are staying home.
Reason #1: We got a really bad storm and it’s around -15º. All the waterers and everything for the cattle were frozen solid, and Kevin almost got frozen solid in the process of unfreezing them. We were kind of leaning towards staying home because of the bad weather anyway.
Reason #2: My sister (who arrived at my mom’s yesterday) has Rubella. German Measles. She just broke out last night with the rash, and luckily I hadn’t seen her the week before either. German Measles is contagious the week before and after the rash. She’s been immunized, but… who knows why the immunizations don’t work. I have been too, but since I’m pregnant, if I were to get it, it could cause serious birth defects for the baby.
My mom and grandma are both going to come up and stay with us on Wednesday. But now that they’ve been exposed too, I’m worried they could bring me the virus.
