Sickness Suckage

Yup, I caught the head cold my entire family seems to have. My five year old and I were cuddled together on the sofa yesterday hacking and wheezing in true family style, while the ten year old and Dusty tried to laugh at MythBusters and wound up coughing instead.

Isn't family time great?

Anyway, if anyone has been trying to get a hold of me and I've been tardy, that's why. I've got the Nyquil list of symptoms and I've lost my voice on top of it. I'm going to have to send Dusty out for a wipe-away board I can carry with me. I'll chase after the kids writing furiously. "Look at me when I write at you!"

Oi. I think it's time for more Nyquil...

I hope you and your family feel better real soon.

So do we. :p I think this is the first time we've all been sick at the same time, which makes it that much worse.

Oh well. For some reason, my fevered brain came up with a whole new story. A vampire, a curse, and green leafy blood. I call it Norwegian Wood, and I've got about 1700 words written on it already.

They may not be GOOD words, due to the undue influence of cold medicine. I'll have to see once I'm feeling better, but it's a start!

So the positive side of being sick is a new story, whoo hoo :)

Can't believe how much you have already written!!! Very interesting too :)

Oh I wanted to tell you that I love your word count you keep on the stories you are writing. Cannot wait for Noble Blood! I'm on pins and needles to see how Jaden, Duncan and Moira's story plays out.

Get some rest.
