I think that my March 8 post may have been the last thing I wrote before slipping into an oblivion of illness. My husband left for London and the boys and I immediately came down with an insipid version of the crud. On Friday I was doing a happy dance because we'd all recovered and everyone had been sent to school in for the first time that week.

What's that's saying about counting chickens? I woke up on Saturday morning not feeling quite right. By midday there was this strange swelling in my neck and face that was growing scarier by the minute. It turned out that I had mono, for crying out loud! Well, a mono-like virus, to be accurate. It seems like I've been asleep ever since. Right now, at 10:15pm, I've been awake since 4. This 6 hours and 15 minutes is the longest I've been awake since Saturday night! 

Anyhow, I'll slowly be getting back to writing and to #DiversityMeans over the next few days, but I just wanted to pop in and let you guys know that I haven't gone AWOL on you! 

Take care of yourselves and please stay healthy!
