It Was Ugly and So Was I


I'm not sure what it is about this time of year,
 but it seems I always come down with something.  

Last year...


Swine flu. 

Never confirmed, but 95% sure.  
I'd never been so sick.  
It was ugly and so was I.
  I didn't go to work for a whole week.  

Ha! How convenient that I took 
this week as a vacation week! 
 I thought I'd cheated the fates.  
I thought I was home-free.  
No sick 4 me this year!!!

NOT!

 It's my back.  Oh, my aching back.

  Not just...  "ouch, my back hurts",
 more like 

"oh my gosh, I may never walk again!" 




But Gracie's taking care of me, so I'll be fine.



Mondays Mug: The Love Mug


Hubby gifted me with this mug one year around Valentines day, and it's shaped like a heart.  

The Love Mug


This mug makes a good Hot Chocolate mug!  Just add mini marshmallows, put in a good movie *It's a Wonderful Life,  recline in your comfy chair, and say 'aah'.  

Just make sure someone in the room has a handful of marshmallow's to toss across the room for the dog or she won't leave you alone.

It's the perfect time of year to enjoy this wonderful mug.  

Happy Monday everyone!
