Flu season

We are all sick in the Matsumoto home.

Whatever I have is terrible. I don't know how the boys managed the past few days without complaining any more than they did. They were so good for me! A few tears and tantrums but nothing out of the ordinary. Keiji was very sick Wednesday night but we thought it was from either eating too much mango ice cream for his cousin's birthday or maybe a stomach virus. He was really out of it all day on Friday though... probably from not being able to keep anything down for a day and a half. Then Ken got sick Friday night and again tonight. I was having cold symptoms earlier but started feeling worse today. Now, I can tell you I'm pretty certain I have the flu. This really stinks. :(

Hostess club workshops for tomorrow are cancelled.
Monday hostess club workshops are still pending... as much as I want to push through this and hold the workshops, I don't want to get anyone else sick.

So ladies, I have alternative days for you.
Thursday 9:30a - 11:30a
Thursday 7p - 9p
Saturday 10a - noon
Saturday 7p - 9p

I hope this will work for all 14 of us. Yes! I believe we have a new member to our club!

Serendipity Bake Off!

Hosted by Familia Bencomo
Contest rules can be viewed on the Familia Bencomo blog.
Now for the PRIZE!
Let me tell you something... nothing has ever worked for these chapped and cracked craftin' fingers of mine during the cold winter months except for Serendipity Bath Co. products. Seriously! When I had shingles on my face, it was this company's Whoopsie Daisy! soap that got me through one of the most uncomfortable experiences of my life! By the way, it is just sheer coincidence that my blog/online name is the same as one of my favorite products ever. Serendipity! lol! OMG! The Sugar Scrub alone is to die for! I use it practically every day! Really! Don't even get me started about my favorite scent, Brazenberry. Heavenly! You simply can not go wrong with these natural, handcrafted, made with love, bars of soap and products!
Please go over to Amy's blog, leave a comment, and give the Bake Off a try!
Be sure to visit the Soapchix at Serendipity Bath Company! Tell them I sent you!
