    Hope everyone feels better soon. This shit sux when you are trying to work and keep a schedule.

    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    I stopped answering the phone
    My bad .....
    Seriously, if I book too far out, I get too many cancellations.
    Katy tells them how far out we are and they still want an estimate. I bet it is more comparing notes. Catch 22. Because you really don't want the rep of not returning calls either.

    Better than not returning is just changing your message up to let people know possibly how far out you are.

    I know the exact feeling you're having. I'd get upwards of two months out and not feel like returning calls either. It's tough.

    It has got to the point of not even being able to pencil in estimates. I just tell them, I will call them when I am working an area. They are just too spread out. I have to put my family first or they will never see me.

    I'm still sick like the dog. Day five I think? Ridiculous.

    I've read now that most flus take 7-10 days. Let me tell yah I'm counting them down.

    Did a bunch of sanding this morning and have to go out again tonight and tomorrow morning, I'm not really looking forward to it much. I've got one guy pushing me hard to clean his chimney before New Years otherwise apparently I'm throwing a damper on his festivities. Guy called me two days before Christmas. Lol. I feel like going to do it and leaving flu germs everywhere. No honestly I don't feel like going to do it and I don't even know if I could.

    To late now. Apparently there is some sort of shot they'll give you within the first 24-48hrs but for me now it's just tough it out. I've been taking lots of healthy vitamins and stuff. I avoid the cold/flu medicines that mask the symptoms. I don't feel that helps your body heal. I'm getting lots of rest and drinking lots of water.

    I'll be alright. I'm just whiny.
