Tuesday is Duster Dance Day

I am not at full function so, friends, you know the drill. I have faith in you

I have am recovering from the flu. Tomorrow is Desk Day. Instead of dusting today, I am going to do my reading and paper work. In a few minutes I will do my walk through and put my home in as much order as I can. Yesterday, I did a couple of thing on my to do list but it was work and rest, work and rest. Sunday was totally lost to me, I slept all day while I was feeling at my worst. When you are sick, do what you can. Try to keep your home functioning if you can. If you cannot, find someone to help.
