Arrgh!  Just when I thought that I was going to escape the flu season unscathed, it hit.  And I'm miserable....I don't do sick well - at all.  I'm in the FOURTH day of this junk, and have had enough!  School starts again for me on Tuesday - I'd better be better by then!  I have to stop and put it into perspective before I go stark raving mad....I know that there is an end to his, and that I could have it much worse.  So I'm stopping the complaining and starting to be grateful that it's JUST the flu and nothing more serious.

On a lighter note, I got some pics from Emma's 3rd birthday party...still haven't found the cable to my camera, but got these from was a lot of work putting it together, but so much fun!  I'm so glad that we get to do these things together!  My daughter has such a creative flair that I am in awe of her....I just show up and do the crafty and cooking things at her instruction...It was a Pink Princess Tea Party to be remembered!  I just wonder how she is going to top it for next year!
