::: Cough Sneeze Blerg :::





I've been sick.


In place of my normal weekly wrap-up I will be accepting homemade chicken soup.


Cards and/or cookies can be sent to my home in Wisconsin. 


Lest you think I'm exaggerating this illness, let me assure you that I. Am. Not. (Also, let me assure you that I'm a complete and total bitch-baby.)


Sick days are great reading days. I'm going back to bed with my book.

I hope you've all had a great weekend.
