I’ve been sick for a couple weeks now. Don’t worry – it’s nothing serious. Just a mutant cold of some kind. Annoying, but far from seriously harmful. I’ve been confined to my room for about 10 days, though, in an effort to keep this nasty bug from infecting my family and the rest of the world.

As I’ve whiled the days away blowing my nose and trying to sleep,

Curse You, Isaac Newton!

I had the stomach flu all weekend.  My children, having enjoyed it all week, decided to share the joy and gave me a turn hosting the germs for the weekend.  They’re givers.  Truly.

So, I spent the weekend curled up in bed or in the loo revisiting and…er…uh…otherwise experiencing the joy of an angry stomach.  I sucked on a few 7up chips (crushed ice cubes made of 7Up) after I realized I was on well on my way to turning into a raisin.
