Happy Wednesday All,
Yesterday I woke up around 5:45 a.m. for the second or so time in the night. Why? I have no earthly idea. My offspring decided after hearing my husband's voice that it was time to get up. I stayed in bed. Then I found out husband was taking a sick day (turns out he has inflamation in his throat and is on an antibiotic and a thing to soothe his throat). My throat was dry and sore, but I figured based on previous experience--allergies!
So all day long I was tossing back water and hot tea. I discovered my throat does not like Ocean Spray's Cran-Raspberry Juice when it's sore (usually I love this juice, but apparently not when I have a sore throat). So I stuck with water and Apple Cinnamon Tea. The bathroom and I became very well acquainted thanks to all these liquids being forced down my throat with regularity.
The sad thing? I got a new Critique Partner and she sent me her manuscript. I hadn't the energy to sit at the computer and critique it. I sent her the first 8 chapters of my novel and by late evening she already had it back to me! Hopefully today I will feel up to getting a good start on it.
In fact, I took a little nap (not nearly long enough) and mostly laid around reading (aside from the frequent bathroom visits and getting more water and/or tea). I also got to remember why I like Hall's Fruit Breezer Cough Drops.
On a high note, I finished reading Jackson Pearce's Sisters Red. Not bad, but be prepared for very dark, mysterious novel if you choose to read it. I like her As You Wish YA novel best, myself. I found it extremely imaginative (hey, how often do you find a genie in novels these days??) But anyway, she's a good writer--imaginative and talented.
So, have you experienced days where you think you're gonna do one thing then your body decides "No way, jose, get thee to a bed right away!"?
Have A Wondrous Wednesday!
