Well, it was bound to happen...

I'm sick.


I kept trying to ignore the sore throat yesterday,
but by last night there was no ignoring the feeling of my 
throat closing up or not being able to talk very loud.  

I do believe I have a voice, it just hurts to use it!

So I will sip on hot tea today and try not to do too much.

I'm looking forward to reading everyone's answers to the above game.

Come On...

Play along and give me something to do while I lay
here on my "death bed."  


I can be very dramatic when I'm sick!

On the menu at our house tonight:


Ham and Cheese Crescents


AND...pulling from the freezer because it freezes so well,
Potato Soup.


Enjoy your day!
And please don't worry,
I will be back tomorrow!

  3. Good morning! I am sorry your sick...no one is quite as dramatic as me though, haha....Just lie there in your chair today, you'll feel better tomorrow...Now, for your game...

    When I was young...(goodness I can't decide how young to go, haha) let's see...I LOVED to go up to our cabin in the mountains and play in the snow.

    In 1996 Melody was 10 and James was 16, and John was 20, and Joe was 24! Melody had just made a travel softball team and we were knee deep in the "softball" world and all that meant. Good times...

    I can style my hair (on the mornings I don't wash it that is, haha) in 2 minutes flat.

    Looking down at the phone and seeing it is my daughter calling makes me smile every time. (I have lots of these ones ~ I'll give you a couple more since your just laying there, lol) One of my grand kids seeing me and shouting out with joy, "Grandma's here!" makes me smile every time. And finally, opening the mail box and seeing a card or letter from a good friend makes me smile every time!

    Have a good, restful day Lois!

    When I was young, I could play outside all day long and my mom would have to beg me to come inside. So different from today's kids!

    I can dance all over my kitchen while singing a Broadway showtune in 2 mins. flat...maybe a little bit more!

    Being with my family makes me smile every time!
