Taking a few sick days

me and willow

Well, I thought that I just had a persistent cough and that I was going to wake up feeling better any day, but I didn’t. In fact, I woke up feeling worse. Yesterday I was diagnosed with pneumonia and I am officially being forced to take it easy. I’ve got so many orders to ship and so much work to do leading up to the holidays, so the timing is less than ideal, but my only hope of getting better quickly is to rest. So that’s what I’m going to do. I hear that pneumonia can be hard to shake if you don’t allow yourself adequate rest and downtime and shake this thing I must!

The thing about being a husband and wife business is that when the wife is out of commission the husband has to pick up all the slack both at work and on the home front and something’s gotta give, so not much of anything will be happening work wise for the rest of the week. I’m really hopeful that I make a speedy recovery and will be able to make up for the lost time in the next week or two.

The Canada Post strikes have come to an end, however the backlog of packages in the system are likely to continue to cause delays for some time, both domestically and internationally. If you’re waiting on a parcel from me please sit tight! The postal service is overwhelmed so please expect delays. Canada Post has reassured us that though there is a backlog, our parcels are safe and will be delivered.

That’s my update, I hope to be back soon with better news!
