Sick in Bed (Most of the Day, Anyway)...

I actually stayed down in bed almost all day long. As most of you know, I tend to sit up and work even when I'm sick -- but not today!

Marilyn and sister Sue keep checking on me all day long -- which is very sweet, I think. Gotta love my sisters!

I've been reading "The Lost Hero," by Rick Riordan. (His site reads: THREE NEW HEROES. ONE MISSING DEMIGOD. A CURSE THAT THREATENS TO DESTROY THEM ALL . . . When Jason, Piper and Leo crash land at Camp Half-Blood, they have no idea what to expect.) For those who don't recognize the author's name, he's the man who writes the Percy Jackson books.

I've really been enjoying the book. But here's the amusing part! I'm so out of it from being sick that I'll read a bunch, then drift off and dream what's happening. So half the time I don't know what's really up, considering my dreams are quite different than the actual book. Hahahahahahaha.

I did get up long enough to take care of a News item for the festival website -- and to check some emails and so on. But I wasn't up more than an hour and a half, tops. I'm sitting up right now in the family room with Marilyn, sort of watching TV and typing this on my laptop...

I've had two cups of yogurt today to eat -- and I didn't even feel like eating that. My blood count has been under 100 today, even without taking my medication. Odd.

Marilyn and I just saw a kitten on the news with two faces, speaking of odd. I've never seen that before, but they even have a name for it: Janus cats. So clearly it's more common than one might think!

I have body pains, no desire to eat, a headache on and off and basically feel like crap. (Part of the time I've had a sore throat, too.) I'm so TIRED it's hard to describe. All I want to do is sleep and sleep -- and that's pretty much what I've been doing...

WORST THING EVER??? The entire Events team is going to Elmer's for breakfast tomorrow morning, and there's clearly no way I'm going to get to go!!! Bummer! I'm really disappointed. (sigh)

I'm ready to lie down again...
