1. On Monday I got struck down by the flu. (And yes, I did get my flu shot; not fair!) I am prone to colds and allergies, but this was my first flu in years. Not fun. You'd think I'd get a lot of reading done while lying in bed, but no: I pretty much just slept and whined and occasionally drank watered down Gatorade or sipped at lukewarm cup o' noodles soup. I hope you all have had healthier weeks!
(And that's why this isn't Friday Five, because five things seemed a tad too ambitious.)
2. Another thing I didn't do a lot of while languishing was write. It's too bad, because I was doing a great job of meeting my November word count goal. Hopefully I'll catch up this weekend. Kudos to all the NaNo people, who continually inspire and impress me with their word counts!
3. Up next for me to read, now that I'm recovering, is Marianna Baer's Frost. I am so up for some suspenseful YA. In addition to sounding wonderful, it is a book that President Obama is said to have purchased for Sasha last summer during a bookstore trip. That is pretty much my life goal right there, to have a U.S. president and/or first daughter read something I wrote.
How was your week?
