If we were having coffee today I would tell you I have to keep this short. This cold I have is pretty much kicking my ass and I shouldn’t be out of bed. I keep thinking I should be getting better any moment but I just keep waking up still sick. I have been resting and drinking lots of fluids and making sure to eat lots of healthy foods. My amazing girlfriend even made chicken soup for me! What else could my body want???….Sigh, I’m sorry, I’m just a bit frustrated.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am very proud of myself for keeping up with NaBloPoMo even though everyday I feel like I’m not going to make it. I have posted everyday and I even have some ideas for future posts now. Unfortunately my work schedule might be hectic again this week so I may be writing in the evenings again but hey, as long as I’m getting it done I’m happy.
If we were having coffee I would also tell you that I am happy I have gotten back into reading again. I used to read all the time and last new years I had a goal to read at least one book a month, but I failed miserably. I think I may have gotten through 4 books total, pathetic I know. But I have gotten over my resistance of reading books on a screen and have discovered the amazing convenience that is iBooks. It still doesn’t compare to the feel of a physical book and I do miss the “new book smell” but it’s the reading part that is important and this is easier.
I decided to finally read The Shining by Stephen King since it has always been one of my favorite movies. We recently watched it over Halloween weekend and I kept thinking that there must be so much more in the book and damn was I right! I am going to attempt to do a review of the book when I’m finished but I will say right now that so far I love it! The story is so much deeper and there is so much more that happens. I still love the movie but the book really gave me so much more to think about.
Anyway, if we were having coffee I would say I had better go before I start coughing all over the place and grossing everyone out. I wouldn’t want you or anyone else to catch whatever nasty sickness I have.
I would love to hear how you’re doing too, let me know in the comments :)
