The welcoming of 2014 was not the night I had anticipated. The beef was waiting in the fridge, the wine was holding its place in the wine rack and I was curled up on the couch nursing a glass of water and a nasty chest cold with a temperature of 103F.
I woke up on December 30th after not showing any sign of illness the previous night and a few hours after getting out of bed, I hit a wall. I spent four short hours at work and was sent home. Being the diligent employee I am, I attempted to perform my daily duties again the next day and sent myself home. I have spent the last three days sleeping, coughing, sipping water and not eating a thing. Today was the first day I attempted some food so I can start getting my energy back.
It seems I have a lot of catching up to do on my blog reading, but I just wanted to wish you all a very Happy new year and all the best for 2014!
