My daughter's computer had crashed while there and so No computer..then every germ in sneezing distance found me and had a feast the first 2 weeks while there! Anyways, I got use to being sick and still enjoyed myself ..Brought a grocery bag full of craft projects to do and never touched anything..just no time or too tired ..When my husband came to get me ,we left earlier than planned to beat the coming Snow Storm ,which closed the 'Mackinac Bridge' and highway...we hit the storm half way home but made here in one piece..frazzled.. but home!

I even managed tobring.. home alittle surprise... a 'New Flu Bug!!' so been out of commission here the past few days..nasty coughing and aches and did something to my ear..well lots of surprises to share with the Dr. on Monday.. well, enough gross stuff!!
