I feel like crap, sick to my stomach and really overall gross.  I am going to cancel tonight to not wanting to have to leave unexpectedly.  Not sure if I got a bug or if I am just dealing with change of the seasons however I do have a kiddo who was feeling crappy today as well.  I will be working on the witches hat and will try to get a video up this week.  Sorry to cancel but really I need to go crawl in my bed.  -Gerriann
