    aww – missed your post! Hope you are feeling better soon. Hey! under the weather – how exactly ‘under the weather’?? 😉

  4. Elizabeth Mahlou

    Sorry to hear you are under the weather. (Maybe you could find place else to be under…) In any event, there is a lot of sickness running around here, too, slaying people as they try to take a step. I stayed home today. Hope to make it to work tomorrow. Praying that you will get better very quickly. Rest! It’s like magic.

  5. Kimberlie

    So sorry you are not feeling well. We have lot’s of stuff going on in our house to. My husband is the latest victim. Fortunately, it’s just a fever of unknown origin.

  6. Sharon

    Hope you feel better, Jennifer! Get lots of rest today. I’m on it–starting the Quick Takes now, but probably won’t finish them until this evening.

  7. Kathleen@so much to say

    Hope you feel better. We all had the ick last weekend. No fun at all!

  29. Frances

    Jen, I’ve been thinking of you this past week as I’ve perused and played the games at Luminosity.com. There’s one called Familiar Faces and another called Name Tag that might help you develop your name recall skills (if you ever want to devote time to that). 🙂

  30. Frances

    Oops! I meant LUMOSITY.com. Sorry about that.

  31. Katie

    I hope you feel better soon!

  32. Jesseca

    I found you yesterday via Mighty Maggie’s blog, which I found via Parenting.com, and I quickly added you to my blog list. You write splendidly about matters I can vividly relate to. I’m looking forward to spending more time here. Feel better!

  33. JoAnna

    It’s the season for it — all five members of our family have been sick within the last two weeks. Hope you feel better soon!

  34. Rebecca

    Hope you feel better – thanks for hosting even though you are not feeling well.

  35. Valerie

    Get better soon. I visit your site daily and really appreciate your articles. Best wishes from Valerie of New Zealand.

  36. Erika

    Praying you feel better! God bless —

  37. Margeux

    Now’s the time to plead with hubby: “In my contagious state,do u think it
    wise 4 me to bake and cook? and that’s his cue to say, ‘Of course not, dear,
    let me make reservations or call Target for their carry out pre-cooked dinner w/ trimmings.”

  38. Kate T

    Hope you get some rest this weekend! I love your blog, thank you. Also, in a similar boat for Advent, so a HUGE thanks for opening up the lines for those great suggestions! God Bless

  39. Judy

    Praying for your comfort, peace, and healing…thanks for still posting a linky for the rest of us even while you’re not feeling well…that is very kind of you.

  40. Stephanie

    I am a long time lurker, first time commenter. In fact, this is the first time I have ever commented on the blog of someone I don’t personally know. Woo Hoo! I have been reading your blog for a while, but have just started at the beginning to learn more about your journey from atheism to faith. Your story is really amazing!

  41. Danielle

    I hope you feel better…. Are you pregnant? The only reason why I ask is that you have posted a lot of baby/family planning type posts lately..and with you being under the weather…..
