Eww & Goo

The past five days I have alternated between been sick, tired or sick AND tired.  I currently have the maternal unit of all sinus congestion and I’m miserable and sick and tired of being sick and tired.  It could be a head cold, it could be the flu – I’m not even sure anymore, because I can’t think straight.  For days, everything that might have been of any kind of worth between my ears has slowly and methodically turned to… […]

In the meantime, I share these One Minute Healthy Habits*: 1)      Take your shoes off at the door.  Prevents outdoor pollutants from coming in and symbolically leaves the day behind your.  Good […]
