Sick Day Essentials

Happy Monday readers!

Good weekend?

Mine was okay...we had lots of fun activities planned, but unfortunately the kindergarten germs got me already! A cold came on Friday night.  We had plans both Friday night and Saturday, which didn't allow me the time to rest I needed. That being said, the cold really took away from the fun of the weekend and put me on the couch pretty much all day yesterday.
