Did you miss me while I was away? Liar. You didn't write, you didn't call....but who could blame you? I was a walking pile of goopy, germy, rasping, oozing, contagious homo sapien. Yes, it's true. It got me. The Swine Flu.

For the past several days (Weeks perhaps? Who knows?), The Duchess and I have been like mommy and baby bat, holed up in our cave. We've built mountains out of wadded up tissues, sweat through fevers, become so dehydrated our lips cracked and coughed so hard our ribs are bruised.

Fingers crossed...I think we've survived the worst of it.

The Duchess lost two pounds and I managed to somehow gain two. What the hell?! (This once again goes to prove that my body hates me and is maliciously plotting against me.)

I think I'm back. To be perfectly honest, I just looked at how busy you've all been over the past several days and I have no freaking idea how I'm EVER going to get caught up with my reading! Can you all just send me a brief summary of what you've written about so that I can peruse it at my leisure? No? Damn it. I see how you are.

The sneezes are still exploding out of me too frequently to make for a happy and cootie free keyboard, but I'm hoping that another twenty four hours will clear up that nastiness and I'll be back to my old self again. Hm. I wonder how long I'd have to wait to come back as someone else? Possibly someone more humorous and with a better attitude. I don't know if I can wait that long. See you soon.

Hope you feel better soon! I haven't written much lately so I would be easy to catch up on :)

Oh so sorry it got you Amy. so far so good here but then I'm hardly ever around people. Most my illnesses arrive via the germ ridden little fingers and faces of my grandkids but they are finally old enough that their own immune systems have toughened up a bit.

Oh no! I'm glad you are getting better. My daughter's school just got it's first confirmed case last week, and another one this week.

Sorry to hear about your flu bout. Glad you both recovered and will be stronger for it.

If I sound muffled it is because I am wearing a mask. I really don't want SF thanks! LOL
Glad you came out of it ok and welcome back.

I didn`t write? But I did think of you, dear Amy! I`m including you in my sisterhood circle as soo as I get around to sending the (tessa`s and Lori`s) award round! So if you want to have some fun to get better, I advise you to read those two last blog posts, and especially Life at Willow Manor with her great party of the year.
Soon you`ll be up and all the stronger! Cheers from Angela

So sorry you caught IT, the flu tha must not be named!! Yikes. However now you will be immune to it, which is a very good thing.

Sending soothing healing energy. Glad you're getting well.

Did you hear that Kermit the frog died?

His last words: That pig told me she was clean.

Get well soon.
