Monday Fun & Games:

  Welcome to my blog!
(Sorry the icon wasn't coming up correctly so it's not joining us today!)

1.  Do you eat Sushi?  NO!
2.  What kind of bath soap do you use?  I don't - use shower gel from Bath/Body Works
3.  How often do you talk to your Mom?  
     Maybe once a month, occasionally twice.  They're really hard to get ahold of.
4.  What TV shows do you watch on a regular basis?
     I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE - Criminal Minds, Blue Bloods, Numb3rs, & the Mentalist!
5.  Did you start Christmas shopping
     yet?  I'm more or less done.  I think I have a couple more and then I'm done.

How's that for short and quick?  LOL

Alright, I'm back.  I've been fighting this awful headache for almost 10 days and it really takes it out of me.  I think it's a sinus headache and most of it's gone - it's just sitting on my right side - ear, teeth and temple.  I've been taking this Pseudophedrine PE since Friday and it seems to do the trick for a couple hours at a time and then it all comes back.  BUT - it's not near as bad as Wed - Thursday.  According to the pharmacist at Wally-World something is going around and I think I caught it.

Other people here at work at getting the "something" that's going around too.  I think it's all John's fault! 

Anyway - the 12 Days of Christmas has officially started on my Holiday Traditions blog.  Don't miss out - if you sign up for my newsletter you get an extra entry for my Black Friday holiday kickoff!  Stop by in the morning and check out the FREE holiday music, children's books and the mega Holiday Sippers gift set I will be giving away that day.
