This girl has been out of touch. Just a quick note to say, I hope to be back soon. I have been knocked-out with a Norwalk-like illness the past few days. Fun. NOT. I would so SO rather be working…or running in -20….Seriously. ANYTHING would be better than this.
In lu of posting, a few ‘flu’ jokes which made me giggle. Back to the ginger-ale and my well-warmed position on the couch in my pajamas….
