Man alive, do I hate this time of year! It's cold out (as in "I've only been outside for two minutes and I can't feel my thighs" cold), it won't stop snowing and I haven't seen the sun in weeks. It seems like it has been winter forever and it's making me cranky. To make things worse, the kids are all sick with various diseases and instead of staying home, they come to school to infect the populace. I held out as long as I could and for a time, I was one of the few uninfected souls. Then last week, the plague finally caught up to me. I knew I couldn't hold out forever. Well, let me tell ya, this is one nasty cold. You know the kind that feels like your sinus cavity is filled with cement? The one where the pain behind your eyes makes you suspect that there is a small deranged man in your skull pounding away with a tiny sledgehammer? Blech.
Needless to say, I have been focused on merely staying alive and unfortunately I haven't blogged in a while. I still don't feel stellar, but I got such a wonderful award that I just had to post. JustMeriMaat, of In Flux, bestowed upon me the "Nice Blog Award," with some very kind and complimentary words. Well, talk about a pick me up! So, thank you, thank you, thank you!
