yield

I have yielded to a killer flu that attacked my body last weekend.  The evidence:  piles of Kleenex, leftover mugs of tea, a list of cancelled plans, and vague memories of extremely bad television.  Here's hoping that waving the white flag (aka crumpled tissue), will help the recovery process along.

Good news: my fellow writer Cynthia just gave me my first blogger award :D  I have been tasked with revealing personal deep dark secrets to you all. . of which I have many.  I shall do so promptly when the flu no longer makes things foggy and oddly topsy-turvy.

Until then, let me know if there are any requests for the "type" of secrets I reveal. . .favorite reality TV shows?  most embarrassing moment?  teen girl crushes?  things I do when I know ABSOLUTELY no one's watching?

Guess you'll just have to wait until next week to find out.

*Update
Just looked at the award more closely. . apparently, I just need to share seven "interesting" facts about me. Well then. . that makes things a little less. . interesting.  Can you tell that being sick makes me talk funny?

*Second Update
 Oops!  Forgot to include a FREE coloring page for all other sick kiddos like me.  So if you're having a cold or flu or are just feeling blue, just color this and make those blues go away:

  1. Aww! I hope you feel better. It's funny you say color the blues away when yours is colored blue (except for that perfect little spot of red on your poor abused nose, and the little table). Lovely style! You captured that whole sick thing quite well, down to the exhausted arm with the remote control about to drop right out of it.
