Yes, I've been absent.
I am as sick as a dog.
I have never had a cough like this. It just wont go away. My ribs are aching, my head is hurting. If I eat, I cough... If I drink, I cough. So now I'm dehydrated, too.
I just can't stand lying in bed,
getting nothing accomplished.
So I'm forcing myself to get up and get some work done.
Maybe listening to some good music will help me along.
I've been missing you.
I'll be back to visiting all of you real soon.
