Checking In...

Hi guys! I'm still here, alive.... kinda....

I had everything planned out to finish Sweet Pea over the weekend and do a HD post on Monday, we were going to do the balcony flooring, I told hubby I wanted to go shopping... this was all on Friday. What do they say about the best laid plans?

I came down with the worst case of stomach bug over the weekend. I won't bore you with the gory details, but let's just say I wanted to die! Then, in my kind and generous way, I gave it to poor hubby. Can't say I don't share. ;)

So here we are, in the middle of the week, and I'm starting to feel human again. Can't say that for poor hubby yet. I have blogs to catch up on reading and emails to reply to. If you haven't heard from me in a while, now you know why. It's not because of Diablo 3. It's not out yet... ROFL!!

I'll leave you guys for now with a pic of my mail when I came in to work yesterday...

So sorry you had that lousy bug!! Hope your DH feels better soon...maybe you at least passed on some antibodies with the bug?? =D

Good thing they wrap those European XS packs all in plastic so the drool doesn't make the pretty silks run, LOL!!

Sorry to hear that you have been so unwell - but glad to hear that you are n the mend, hopefully Hubby will be close behind in the recovery stakes.
Lovely looking mail.

tiffstitch said...

Dude.. glad you're feeling better and I'm sure the mail helped! Hope DH feels better soon too. I was lucky that the stomach bug skipped me, but a lot of co-workers had it. Take care of yourself! And at least it didn't happen during IHSW. :D

Good to hear you are better. I hate any type of problem with my stomach. I can handle sore throats, ear infections, but no one mess with my stomach.
