I’m still alive. I swear! This thing came out of nowhere and slammed my ass into bed so fast, I’ve barely crawled out of it for days.
It’s been the weirdest cold. Felt like someone shoved sharp pieces of dry ice down into my chest so every breath was shallow and painful. Body aches from head to toe and when the coughing started…
Okay, enough whining. On a positive note, all the hacking has worked my abs like no exercise can and my general lack of appetite will hopefully have me back in swimsuit season for real.
Yeah, right. Lying in bed flabby weight loss. The best kind.
But today, I awakened feeling great. It’s my daughter’s 16th birthday, so I ran up the stairs to tickle her awake and fell into a pitiful coughing heap at the top.
Now I feel out of shape and old. <g>
But, I’ve been able to work while lying in bed thanks to my sad and very slow lately laptop. I polished up another couple of chapters, started seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and realized I left a chapter out!!! WTF??
I know my head feels stuffed with cotton and a deep breath makes me dizzy enough to fall out of bed, but how can something like that happen?
Oh well, I went back and shuffled things around. May dump that part entirely because I’m starting to sweat the length of this book…
Oh, and my CP and I are back on track–doing our usual–picking ruthlessly at the work then biting nails over the response. Good times. Sounds rough, yes, it can be, but it keeps us on our toes which is a good thing. Really. Promise. I mean it.
Oh and if you’re a fan of her work and want to jump into what’s turning out to be a lively discussion group, check out her new Yahoo Group, The Pride.
I hope that link works–keeps telling me I’m already a member.
