I'm Sick and Tired

Yes, you heard me. I am sick and tired! Literally! I am sick to my stomach as is C and cleaning her throw up up is not helping. L has fifth disease, and I thought with the fever that is what C had as well until dinner started coming back. I am also tired. We have been working like crazy on the house. Painting ceilings is hard work, I am sore. But all the ceilings have been primed, five got a first coat of paint, and three of those got their second coat this weekend before the bug hit me. I hope to feel better tomorrow so I can get back at it. I so want this house to be done and for us to be in it. I have waited a long time for a house of my own. Now the only thing I wish about as much as I wish to get into it, is that I can take my current neighborhood with me when I go! I love it here so much. I know I should give the new one a chance, but I live in the ideal neighborhood right now. I am going to miss everyone! Just thinking about it makes me sad. So now I am sick, tired, and sad. Oh well C'est La vie! That is my rant and my reason that there has been no word count posting this week. But the silver lining is that last night I had a dream about my story and figured a way to begin resolving all of my many dilemmas. I am sure there will be more to come before this is a book, but maybe, just maybe next week I can write again! Oh and three cheers to my fellow codex writers Eric James Stone and Ami Chopine. Both have stories in the recent edition of Intergalactic Medicine Show. If you are looking for good reads, check it out!

I know how you feel about leaving the neighborhood!!! I'm still sad and it's been almost 3 years since we moved! There's nothing quite like an amazing neighborhood with even more amazing neighbors!!!

Oh...and I really hope you feel better soon! Have you figured out your thyroid stuff???

We love our neighborhood and we're going to miss you and your family. So sorry to hear you're all sick.

We'll miss seeing you in church, but we can still get together for play dates, book club and writer's club!

Gail said...

So sorry your sick and your family too. Nothing like trying to hold back your own throw up while cleaning up someone elses.

We already miss you at church, but as Juliana said we have book club and other events. I can not imagine that I won't find you at Alyson's house on occasion.

I wanna see the house when you're all done with it! We're gonna practically be neighbors. Well, not really...but we'll both be in the same town at least.

I am so sorry this is all happening the one week I can't help you at all. Hey i say we run away on Thursday night!! And never come back until like 2:00 in the morning!

Good luck

It's a busy time, but it's great that you can personalize it now, before you get all those boxes in and never want to move them out :-)

I'm so sorry you have been sick over there. We've had some of that going on as well. You really will be missed here when you leave. I'm grateful for blogging so we can stay in touch!
