so today marks one week in the return of the plague, part II.
i have been ping-ponging with this nasty pestilence for a month and it is a real nuisance.
my cough makes it appear that i do in fact have the black death and that locusts could and quite probably will emerge from my ears at any moment!!!


maybe not.
but  i am quite sick of being sick.
i know that i only have myself to blame.
i have been carrying on like a teenager, just returned last week from a 4 day party express with my girls where i do not think that there was a moment when some form of vodka/cider/whiskey concoction wasnt on the menu. from bloody marys at breakfast to cider in the hottub.. yeah.. i did it to myself. :giggle:

so here's to more hot toddies
and an end to my phlegm.
