Lernin' and Winin'

I have fallen off the face of the planet for over a week.  Got Avery restored to health and back to school last Thursday.  By Friday afternoon, I knew there was no escaping disease myself.  It was actually a ProD day for me, so I was in sessions all day at the same school as Mark.  I ended up finding him and after nearly fainting in the middle of his classroom asked him to drive me home. Long story short, I was sicker than I have been in a very long while with something that seemed completely different from what Avery went through.  I missed work again on Monday and limped my way through the rest of the week.

Do you want to know why I think I got sick?  Because the gods have a sense of humour, that's why!  I cheerily claimed at work that I wasn't too worried about getting sick even though lots of kids have been missing from our classes.  I rarely ever get sick, and I told them so.  That was enough to tempt fate, and scarcely two days later I was down for the count!!!!!  I am now healthy but going forward with humility in all things!

There have been no meals cooked nor any housework done the past week and so today is dedicated to recovery, reclamation and boring old duties on the home front.

Here is something not boring!  Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine just released Webiside #16- Making Gauze flowers. 

Cute huh?

 My broom beckons- a dance invitation I can no longer ignore. Peace and health to you all.
