So I spent the past 48 hours holed up in bed with a 103 fever, sweaty chills, unproductive coughs, and
endless excruciating headaches. I have no idea how it happened, but this bug knocked me off my feet, I’m usually fairly immune to common colds and germs, but this one was a wicked one. Thankfully, my super awesome husband was there to rescue the weekend. He ran my errands, even took M toy shopping for a birthday party she was going to, (of course, along the way he had to buy her a thing…or two…but you pick and choose your battles, you know?) made me his famous fruit salad (my cure-all, I swear it can help grow back a limb) to give me that vitamin boost, and when I thought I was ok enough to take M to the party today, he insisted that I stayed home to relax & feel better. Is he awesome or what? To boot, I had promised my friends two things…one was to help W pick up the cake from the bakery before coming to the party (since it was closer to me than for her) and another was to help K watch lil Caleb at the party since she was not going to be able to make it to the party…so just because I’m sick, doesn’t mean I can’t keep my promise! So J had to do all my bidding for me…and he even took pictures! I love you, baby! I know this sounds sappy but even in my sweaty, matted hair, booger-snotted appearance, he still looks at me like it was our first date…heehee, he rocks.
Ok, I’ll spare the sappiness – so while I, for one, hate wasting time. I put my iPad to good use! I downloaded a few books (for free!) and actually discovered I have a new favorite author! Anyhoo – her name is Nicky Charles, I would totally post a link here for her site, but her ‘site’ is a freebie Goggle’s site and it’s got a hot sweaty guy on the front banner…SOOO…as this is a more…kid friendly blog, I will not post her link here. But you can Google her. Her books could be downloaded to your readers or on pdf format. The Mating was her first book, awesome read – there are some flaws in it, like the ‘heroine’ in the story is not very strong. She totally fits the damsel in distressed category, but great story, her second book The Keeping is also pretty awesome. The ‘heroine’ in this story is MUCH fiercer, she is a spunky ball of fire and cute! BUT keep in mind, these are paranormal romance novels, so if this is not your cup of tea, then don’t bother. I’ve had many debates on Twilight or the Sookie Stackhouse series, so if it’s not your thing, don’t read it but don’t talk trash about any other person’s talent on writing.
Well, it is almost 2am and I need to get M to school in the morning then I have my last day at Eden, since I had to call out on Friday. I did not want to spread my nasitness, whatever it was…or is. I’m hoping by morning, I will be a-ok again.
Hope you had an awesome weekend!
