Because, well, sometimes you just have to.
It all started with a wonderful mini-holiday to Niagara Falls at Christmas, and then turned into two months of nothingness and low productivity. I got sick shortly after we returned, then my husband was sick, things at work got crazy-busy, and then I got sick again with a two-week plague-type cold — all punctuated by a brief case of (mild) food poisoning on Friday. For someone who never gets sick anymore, let alone throws up, it has felt like an exceptionally LONG winter.
Happy Belated Holidays to all and best wishes for a fantastic (and healthy!) New Year ahead!
