I Feel Like I Missed the Holidays

Hi Everyone!
Sorry for the long lapse in posting. I have been pretty darn sick. It started the day after Christmas and got worse from there on. I took a couple vacation days while Trav was here and wound up sleeping pretty much for 48 hours straight. Worked New Year's Eve, sick and at that point could go no further. Called off sick NY Day evening and went to the Dr. the next day. I have strep throat, a sinus infection and an infected lymph node. The side of my neck was swollen and hard like a rock and I could barely turn my head. She put me on a very high dose of a very strong antibiotic with the stipulation that if I could not swallow the pills I was to be admitted for IV antibiotics or if I did not start to feel better by Sunday that I would go to the ER for the IV. Thankfully I am feeling a bit better today and I am able to swallow the pills, so I dodged the hospital stay!
If you have a messy crafty room like mine I suggest heading over to Babbie Blogs.. she is having a messy room contest. Don't be shy... I sent my pic in and it is BAD!!!
I hope your New Year got off to a better start than mine. I am thinking that I would like to do regular features here on EB for 2009. Monday would be this thing, and Tuesday something else... Let me know what you would like to see!
Take care!

I'm so sorry you were sick! That stinks! But I am glad you are feeling better and the meds are working! Rest and take it easy for a while!
I can't wait to see what you have in store for your regular features! I'm a lazy blogger! LAZY! :-)
