But, I've been sick. Yes, I realize in my last post I claimed to be feeling better - what can I say? I was wrong.
Immediately after writing that post I began to feel worse - at that point I hadn't even realized that was even possible.
Hubby, funnily enough, was struck down with the same bug on the same day. So for once, we have experienced our illness together which actually gave us sympathy for each other.

The fabulous Kathryn was offering some Google swag, so I had to play along because - come on - it's Google swag! And lo and behold, this is what the mailman brought me earlier this week. It was the only thing that could have made me smile at that point.
Why yes, that is a little Google-alien magnetic kind of guy who also happens to stand in as a paper clip holder (you can't see it in the picture - but Google is emblazoned across his tummy). Isn't he the cutest? It has promptly been decided that he must be kept under lock and key as several co-workers have been eying him covetously.....thank you Kathryn - he's adorable! He almost made me forget that I was
Wait! What's that? Do I hear Man-Child coughing and sniffling - the big baby......
