She's a DUDE!!

As you may or may not know.. I am married with two petri dishes.. er.. um.. I mean children. Both boys.. both funny.. but right now they both have nasty colds.

And me with my immune system that makes most mothers green with envy.. rarely gets sick. I have been triumphant many times at keeping JUST ONE person sick and not spreading it around the family. I'm always diligent about wiping down the places germs like to live.. like door knobs.. phones.. remote controls.. fridge handle.. kitchen drawer handles.. faucet handles.. even the light switches. My oldest even had H1N1 in early November and no one else in the family got it.. I'm pretty proud of that one.

But.. not this time. First the oldest got the cold.. then my youngest.. and now me. My youngest told me this morning "Mom, you sound like a dude!". We had fun with that one.

So.. here is my treatment plan..

And YES.. that is my sewing machine behind the tissues and it is a part of my treatment plan! I'm on my way to the sewing room now. I'm going to work on my signature blocks and maybe catch up on some 9 patch squares (I can't tackle anything that takes a lot of thought, so no free motion quilting today).

Now what color lipstick goes best with a pasty white face and a red nose?

Pin It

i'm thinking solferino (that's a new color i learned from Bronze Wombat) ... now get out those pickled eggs and eat a couple of them - vinegar is great for de-germing, innit?

Chap stick will probably feel the best. I hope you feel better soon.
