Hello everyone! Thanks for all your emails and well wishes this week.
Artoo is doing much better. His cold grew into a nasty cough, which brought on several sleepless nights. We had to reschedule a medical procedure that he was booked for, he was coughing too much.
Chewie and i had fun this week making Potato stamps and finger painting, I didn't take any pictures of the process because i was up to my wrists in paint. but it was fun. I really enjoy when Artoo has his nap, and Chewie and i get some much needed 1 on 1 time.
Things are slowly starting to feel like they're back to normal for me. YES - I'm still sick, after 2 weeks. But I took myself to the doctor this weekend. While sitting in the waiting rooms i tangled away in my Tangle A Day calendar. What a great way to pass the time.
I finally got in to see the doctor who told me that the rhino-virus, which gave me a cold in the first place, has likely settled into my sinuses and that the normal course for a sinusy-virus is 4 weeks. so, maybe i'll feel better by the end of February? sigh. He did set me on a regular course of Neti Pots and nasal sprays with nasal steroids. I can breathe, again, after a fortnight! i still have no sense of smell...

MY APOLOGIES TO EVERYONE - i forgot to add the linky machine. :(
like i said, i'm STILL sick. lol
i can't add it from work - so it will be up later tonight. thanks for understanding.
If you have a blog, add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here)
Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;)
If you don't have a blog but still want to participate, you can email your tile to me and i will post it here. (See the contact tab above for my email address). The deadline for each weekly challenge is Saturday night so that i can round everyone up by Sunday. What this means is that i will stop adding tiles to the slideshow on Sunday. You're still more than welcome to do the challenges and add your name to the linkey machine.
I will be more diligent with the linkey machine - by editing out the ones that don't work, the doubles, the links that lead to nowhere, the links that go just to blog home pages (this is why we need those site specific urls), and the spam. And there is some spam. PLEASE do not put your *home* page in the linkey machine... please? for me??
