a writer's journey as a reader

“We are not amused.”


I am surprised the progeny survived my nursing skills. One of their mom jokes about me is when they were tykes, after a bash or a crash, they would come looking for some tea and sympathy. I would look them over and note: “if it’s not broken or bleeding you’re fine.”

This explains why it’s taken me two weeks to get myself to the doctor.

Yeah, I’ve been feeling a little off, downright miserable a couple of days, and wanting to sleep a lot. Okay, maybe I should take my temperature. Oops–100.9 isn’t good, is it?

Who gets walking pneumonia in May, especially when it’s 80 degrees out?  Antibiotics, fluids, and lots of bed rest for now. Good thing I have a slow, thick read by the bed.

    Get well soon!

  2. I hope you have someone to wait on you hand and foot and cosset you so you can soon get back to all your commas and apostrophes and semic0lons. They will be missing you. Seriously, look after yourself and have a good rest.

    • Thanks for the kind words and encouragement. In between naps I might muster up a post since I have taken to bed I’ve got time to read again! And I haven’t done a book review in awhile.

  3. Get well soon! At least you’re resting up.

    • Thanks for the encouragement. Resting is not what I’m used to doing when it comes to doing life. I’m at an awkward oxymoron moment: in order to be able to keep moving next week, I must stop what I’m doing this week. Or is that a paradox?

  4. I hope you feel better soon- sending good wishes your way! (and am glad you have a good, long book by your side – hopefully you’ll be up and about before you finish it).
