Nothing...

That's what I got ... absolutely nothing... rolling around in my head. My brain is empty, and my stomach is empty, too -- after having suffered from a horrible, painful stomach virus ... not once, but TWICE in the last 15 days. TWICE! How insulting. The last bout was on New Years eve... not 15 minutes after I ate dinner I began to feel that familiar ol' rumbly in my tumbly. And it wasn't hunger either, dear pooh lovers.

Today I'm feeling a wee bit better, but still nauseous, and my intestines are killing me, if that's possible!

I can't think about writing (although, that's what I'm doing right now), or cleaning, or cooking, or being creative, or ANYTHING. The only think I can actually get excited about is the next bloggy giveaway that Shannon will host ... I think it will be in February. I've got some new jewelry designs (and other giveawayable things) rolling around in my head, and I can't wait until I feel well enough to put my hand to the beads again... which is surprising in itself, because I made, sold, and gave away a gazillion bracelets over the holiday, and I didn't think I'd be able to create anything new anytime soon! Surprise, surprise.

Maybe tomorrow, I'll feel more like sharing about some of my favorite Christmas gifts ... including a lime green item that could be considered as being quite shockingly ugly, but is really totally adorable, and totally sucks. How's that for a clue? Oh, and how about the stack of delightfully-delectable things my oldest niece created with her very own hands? I was so proud of her!

Anyway, I hope you all had a restful, reflective Christmas and New Year. May God continue to bless your stinky socks off with all kinds of neat things in your life, and may He continue to throw strong Christians your way to challenge you, love you, and encourage all kinds of green leafy growth in your spiritual walk!

Hugs and Kisses to you! (although, not too close, 'cause I don't want to share my cooties!)

Maybe having "the crud" is like nursing! LOL I used to think I was losing all my brain cells through my bbs and maybe you lost all yours thru your tummy! *wink*

Hope you are feeling better!

Praying you'll be well soon. Amazingly enough we all managed to stay fairly healthy except for a few sniffles by some and a huge headache or two for moi.

Ooooh, lime green and adorable and sucks. I can hardly wait.

I hope you feel better soon. Scott and I had that bug last Christmas and it stinks to be sick during the holidays.....

Happy New Year, dear GiBee!

Oh I'm so sorry... I was sick over the holidays -- that same nasty stomach bug that likes to pretend to go away and then returns with a vengeance! Yuck. Hope you're all better.
