Don't feel good

I really don't feel good today, Got a sore throat and a blurry head since sunday and 'till now I still don't feel good, I feel like I can't do blogging anymore hope not..if I get better I will start posting here again everyday. I missed lots of 3p opportunities, well, that's okay.. I even missed the 500 dollar opps tuesday..Wish I got it that was extremely cool if I did.. hehehe but unfortunately I didn't because I didn't play in my computer more often because I don't feel good.

Today, Mom and Dad was here they picked up Jodel and Joey. I can handle them even if I don't feel good but my hubby can't. So he told Mom and Dad to get them so I can rest. Jodel and Joey still sick and I am just hoping that it won't pass to Mom and Dad.

So, Today, I am just going to rest, and I hope I get better soon. So, everthing will be back to normal.
