Excuses

There are days when writing is tricky. There are days when writing is inspired. Then there are days like today when writing is near to impossible!

I've got a full schedule today; in fact I'll be driving for more than three hours this afternoon. I've errands to run, groceries to buy, and oh yes, some big holiday coming up next week.

Adding to the merriment is the fact I'm also busy coughing up a lung right now. I have the mother of the mother of all colds. Imagine trying to blow your nose while you're at the wheel. This will be my afternoon.

As for now, I'm going to stop coughing at my monitor and sign off this post. Hopefully, I'm back on Monday feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

  6. Sending you hugs and hoping you feel better soon. I know it's probably too late for this, but...don't overdo! Yeah, that's what I was afraid of.

    Best Regards, Galen.

  10. The blowing the nose thing reminds me of a story...a picked up friends at the airport in Detroit and was driving back to London when I suddenly sneezed. Of course I didn't have time to grab a tissue...so I caught it in my hand (sorry for the grossness). Hope you're feeling better soon, Elspeth.

  12. Hope you have a good weekend as well. Crossing my fingers you'll be feeling better by the time you read this. Colds are such nasty things.
