One of the downsides to working at the public middle school is that I am exposed to many different nasty bugs. A few weeks ago I was taken out for about 5 days with a nasty cold. Now I am on day 9 of this cold/flu thing, and it has absolutely wiped me out. That is the reason updates have been sparse. Thankfully, today is the first day that I have felt myself getting better rather than worse. Once I feel up to it, I will be back on my regular posting schedule.
