I spent that whole week with my daughter and grandson 2 weeks ago. They both had colds. Even when my girls were small, when they were sick with anything it never stopped me from kissing them. They'd tell me not to because they didn't want me to get sick, and I always told them I wouldn't catch it from them. And I never did. 

I've always been of the mindset that if I say I'm not going to get sick, I won't. I swear this is why I rarely get colds or the flu....I will myself not to.

I went by this same theory during my visit. If you think for one second I'm going to be around Griffin and not be all up in his bizniz kissing him, you are certifiably insane. No way I can resist that face. I came and went unscathed,  just as I always did.

Well, I guess I got a bit too cocky. I can't blame it on them because if I was going to get sick from their germs, it would have hit me sooner. But I did wake up a few mornings ago with a sore throat and that feeling in my chest that let me know a cold was coming.

I don't remember the last time I had a cold. It just isn't something I normally get, but I for sure have one now.  My ass is a-dragging, and my nose has turned into a faucet. I'm pretty miserable and would like it to just go away now. The end.

On to one of the half moon mani's I did the other day. I wish I had done this in different colors. I'm not sure why I decided to go with brown. It's just a blah color for this. Oh, well....
Loreal Tea and Crumpets, Zoya Dea, Cheeky A stamp, half moon mani
I knew I wanted to have part of it stamped. I thought it would look cooler than it actually turned out.  I did a couple coats of Loreal Tea and Crumpets and stamped the design using Zoya Dea and a pattern off of the Cheeky A plate.

I think this was a good idea that just turned out unimpressive because of the colors. I tried another stamped one that kind of failed, too, but that's for another day.

I'm off to throw pork and beef roasts in the oven. Hopefully it will taste as good as it sounds.  Yesterday nothing tasted good because of this cold. 

Before I do that, I guess I'll blow my nose for the 8 thousandth time. And yes, I will wash my hands before touching the food.
