Boo. . .the Flu!

Ah-choo! I have the flu!
Down all week sipping doctor’s brew.

Fever up and nose bright red,
I’m sad to say, I’m stuck in bed.

But I’ll be here when Friday shines,
For BBF I’ll post some lines.

Okay, the poem is awful, but it’s the best I can do hopped up on cold meds. I’ve been absent from the blog world this week, and just want to let everyone know I’m not gone, just *sniff* miserable, sick and *ah-choo!* not really able to *cough, cough* focus on blogging or much of anything else right now. 

Anyway, I’m off to take my next round of medicine, drink some hot tea, and think about what to write for Book Blurb Friday.  See you then.

Ah-choo! *sniff*

    A friends just gave me a big stack of hand-me-down magazines and my first thought was, "I hope I get sick so I can stay in bed all day and read." This sounds great on a non-stop, hectic day but the reality of a sick day (week) stinks. I'm sorry you are under the weather. Let me know if you'd like me to bring you a stack of magazines!

    The only good thing about the flu is the prescription cough medicine. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

    Hi Lisa, I am so sorry that you are sick. I was last month and it was a bummer. I hope that you feel better very soon. I'm going to try and do some BBB catching up; I have 2 stories figured out already. Take care and God bless, my friend.Kathy M.

    Lisa, although I've already mentioned about 6 times how sorry I am that you're sick, I'll say it again for this comment section! Feel better fast! A lovely person should never be sick!
