There's a Reading Challenge Comin'

Mornin' Friday Fans,
Well, I ain't quite sure it's Friday. This weeks been such a strange week with being sick an' all, that I don't rightly know what day a the week this is. This here computer says it's Friday, so I reckon maybe it is. ;)

It has been a strange week. I came down with the virus that's been going around our area (chills, aches, fever, cough) on Sunday afternoon. On Christmas morning I was tired, achy, and cold. My dad came down with the same thing around the time we finished opening presents. My sister had a headache and was really tired. My mom had a cough from something else and hadn't been sleeping well, so our Christmas day was a bit strange. Dad slept most of the afternoon. I took several naps during the day. And it really didn't feel much like Christmas.
Tuesday Dad and I were still fighting the virus, and I had started coughing. It was (and is) a nasty cough. More naps, not much getting done.
Wednesday was the final Puppet Outreaches for the puppet team at church. And I couldn't go. :( But at least my sister could. By afternoon my energy was coming back. The aches and chills were gone. All I had left was the cough. And it's a cough that doesn't want to go away.
Yesterday I was coughing more, but Mom was feeling better and getting more sleep!
And now it's today.

I haven't written.

And I don't know if I'll even attempt to post things on here much longer. However, I was thinking about sending short stories I write out to "test readers" instead of posting them on here. 

Oh, and starting on January 1st, Read Another Page is hosting a Reading Challenge! Complete with prizes, "stickers" and a list of fun categories to read books from. Check it out by clicking the button below. And let me know if you are going to join. ;)

Aww sorry to hear you were sick, Rebekah! It's been really weird...our family had something similar to that too! And I've been hearing a lot of other people were getting thta as well. Some weird virus is going around...glad to hear you're feeling better now though!

And that reading soooo tempting right now. I feel like I barely read anything this past year and I kinda feel guilty xD A reading challenge would really help to keep me reading more!

Rebekah said...

The opening lines of this blog post make me smile every time I think of it (which I do once in a while, oddly enough). Every time I recollect those lines, I tell myself I ought to let you know how that friendly Western drawl made me happy. =D
Oh, and that reading challenge you announced in this post has been very good incentive to keep me reading books from my TBR list! Thank you!
