Stayed Home Today

Mainly because I had a slight fever. Don is on medications for Rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, ergo these medications weaken his immune system. I don't know yet if I have a cold or just mild date pudding hangover*, but if it's a cold, I don't want to risk passing it on to Don. However, there seems to be an even better reason for staying home:

This is from the Idaho road report site. There was very little red or yellow when I checked before 7:00 am today. Red = bad. Yellow = mildly bad. A lot of the ones still green haven't been updated since yesterday, btw. At least one of them is recent, but mostly they're old.

*turns out that celiacs shouldn't buy pre-chopped dates; they tend to be coated in something, in this case dextrose, which I had thought was safe, but apparently can be made from wheat. *sighs* Incidentally, you will find places on the web that claim that dextrose is safe, because all the protein gets filtered out in the production process. I'd say only most of the protein/gluten got filtered out. There was just enough left to make me mildly ill, but I've had much MUCH worse effects, so there can't have been very much.
