Hi everyone, I’ve been really hit hard by the flu. The last three days have been spent in bed without even the energy to get up for anything. You know the kind—bronchitis with a really bad headcold to top it off. Something I’ve not shared on this blog I don’t believe is that I have rheumatoid arthritis (an auto-immune disease that affects your joints); so when I get hit by a flu like this it also affects every joint I have making it extremely painful for me to move around and sapping even more of my energy. I think I’m on the mend now though. I feel partially human this morning so I’m thinking that’s got to be a good thing right???
Oh yeh, on another note—I went back to the eye doctor for my eye that I hurt after Christmas (remember the whole cut cornea incident). Turns out it’s still bothering me because it’s not healing properly. I’ll be going back later this week to have my cornea scraped to take down the scar so it’ll start to heal. Let me tell you that I’m more than nervous about this so if anyone has ever had a cornea scraped and can tell me that it’s not so bad I’ll be eternally grateful. For now, I’m ready to run the other way. Anything near my eyes makes me extremely nervous-always has.
I am very behind on my blog stuff. I’ve got to draw for a winner of The Italian Lover first thing here this morning. Then I must apologize once again to Marcia at The Printed Page for not getting my wrap up done on Friday of Sarah’s Key. I absolutely hate letting people down like that. So, that is also on the agenda for this morning.
Unfortunately for me I didn’t get any reading done. I couldn’t even do that with the bad headache I had. On a good note, in my mail today I saw that I won Signora da Vinci from Julie over at Booking Mama. I must admit that went a long way to cheering me up this morning. I really, really wanted that book. Thanks again Julie!
So, that’s all for now. I’m going to get started on trying to get everything back together here and running smoothly again. I’m feeling a tad overwhelmed at this point but I’m sure with the return of some of my energy I’ll get things under control.
Hope you all have an awesome week!
