The funky funk

The funk is back in the house.  Hopefully not for long.

I got my flu shot last Thursday (exactly a week ago).  I have never in my life experienced any side effects from the shot...except my arm being a little sore.  Well that night, I felt horrible.  I was achy, my arm was throbbing and I just wanted to curl into a ball on the couch.

However, I have run into a problem with my beloved yoga pants....
