Spring Holidays, Late Season Sniffles + Missing Newsletters

2014-04-17

Morning everybody. If you're one of our newsletter subscribers, I'm sure you've noticed that it hasn't mailed for the past couple of days. Unfortunately, I've been on my own without any help for about two weeks with a lot on my plate. My husband was down with the flu, we needed to get through the holidays, and then my son was sick for a couple of days. And guess what happens when you're surrounded by disease for two weeks running? Eventually, the pregnant lady (me) gets sick too. Anyway, enough with my sob story. I am working away on the weekend newsletters armed with decaffeinated tea + several boxes of tissues. See you in your inboxes again tomorrow!
