No, I did not fall off the face of the earth. Although, there were times in the past month that I felt like jumping off. Ever since the Holidays, Chez SCGG has been a hotbed of disease and dysfunction, governed by Murphy’s Law. We didn’t even have our Christmas tree down when the first of us fell. Fever, chills and unspeakable gastrointestinal maladies gripped Mr. SGCC like a pit bull with a meaty bone. Poor Mini-SGCC was the next to succumb to that ghastly flu. No sooner did she begin to bounce back when Mr. SGCC went down again. And then, it was my turn.
Added to the mix was the discovery of some major household repairs that needed to be made. Oy! Things were pretty stressful around here, to say the least! So stressful in fact, that I resumed an old habit of grinding my teeth in my sleep – which caused me to crack a tooth and require dental surgery. The fun never ends here, folks. Even the dog got sick!
Needless to say, cooking, baking and blogging were not high on my list of priorities. Even if they had been, I was too darn sick and exhausted to do much about it. My spirit was willing, but my body wanted no part of it. Oh, and did I mention that I was limited to soft, mushy foods for two weeks because of the whole broken tooth thing? Yeah.
