The Plague

I hope I haven't lost too many readers from my lack of posting, but our whole family has come down with the dreaded flu. My eldest daughter brought it home from school and after that, we all went down like dominos. As the mom in this family, I usually make sure I get a milder version of these illnesses (wink, wink) cause I am responsible for taking care of everyone else when they get sick. But I got tricked this time and I got it worse than everyone else. I came so close to asking to go to the hospital. That's how insidious this flu is.

So, needless to say that I haven't felt like thinking about food, let alone eating it. My total calorie intake from Monday to Wednesday was a bottle of Pepto Bismol. This had better result in some weight loss is all I've got to say! But as soon as I feel like I can manage looking at food again, I'll be back!

"Only in America - do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front of the store."

I hope you're feeling better real soon. Sounds like you need some homemade chicken soup which I just so happen to be making right now. When sickness strikes this house I always say if Mom goes down we all go down, so stay away from me!

That chicken soup sounds wonderful! I can almost smell it (well, if I could smell that is!). Thanks for the smile....
