Thursday Sick Day


Daisy and I are bedridden today. It seems the sinus infection I got rid of a couple of weeks ago is back with a vengeance. Daisy pup is firmly under the covers, as am I, and I plan to stay here with periodic trips to the kleenex box.

Since I called into work today, I now have a whole six days off until my next in-person class. That's sort of misleading since I have online classes to attend to and jobs to apply for, and a library science class to work on and find a paper topic for. Now I'm depressing myself.

Today is empty, though. Just lots of fluids, vitamin C, Alka Seltzer Cold, Dimetapp, and reading. I'm eyeing the small books. They look easier to hold. Wish me luck!

Review of Gloria Whelan's After the Train coming right up.

Oh, and while you're out surfing, why not visit Estella's Revenge? The new February issue is up and it's a lot of fun. Great interviews (Lane Smith, John Shors), tasty features, cool columns, lustworthy reviews. Just go see for yourself.

  14. Your little furbaby is so sweet!

    FEEL BETTER.

    I can't wait to hear about the Groff book you are reading. I recently finished Monsters of Templeton. She is a good writer but that particular story didn't resonate with me. Maybe I'll have better luck with another book?

  17. Suey, I can't either! I'm never sick, but I'm making up for that this year!

    Funky, isn't she a sweetie? I knew you'd dig that pic.

    Anna, thanks!

    Madeleine, that's great for adding Daisy to "Oliver's Friends"! Thanks!

    Thanks, Lezlie, Bermudaonion, and Kristina!

    Eva, she's a great snuggler. Not sure what I'd do without her!

    Thanks, Antipodeanowl! And yes she has. She's quite a chunk. All legs!

    Thanks, Chris!!! It blows (literally...*achoo*), but I'll live. Not sure why I'm so feeble this year.

    Bookfool, I keep a cavity, she's such a sweety. lol

    Don't say that too loud, Nik. She'll get an overgrown ego.

    Thanks, Michelle!

    LOL, thanks Kristen! I'll keep ya posted on the Groff book. I loooove it!

    They are evil EVIL sinuses, Nat! E-vil!

    Melanie, I desperately DON'T want to go back to the doc, but I have a feeling I'll end up there. Bummer to say the least. Hope you're feeling much better.
