I know, I am showing up a little late this morning! I usually get my posts up and ready to roll on Saturday nights, but yesterday about mid-day I was hit with one of my weird stomach spells that happens about once or twice a year. They come on without warning, and last about a day or two, so I was in bed from 3pm on. I did drag myself up for church this morning, but haven't touched the computer until now.
So! This was a week where we got some answers. Not all good, but at least we know what we are dealing with. I got an official diagnosis of plantar fasciitis on my foot...pretty much what I expected. Anti-inflammatories, stretching, icing and patience for this damn thing to heal. Could take months, but that isn't going to stop me. Hey, I gave up alcohol for Lent, so I have to have something to take the edge off. The running will not be denied! We got the results on my son's MRI on his back and he has been cleared! This was great news, and serendipitously at the same time made the volleyball team. All is well when the boy is active.
My parents are currently headed back to IN, and my husband flies out today for San Francisco, and there couldn't be more stuff going on in the next three days if I tried. Keep me in your prayers! Anyone want an over/under bet on how many tanks of gas I burn or how many times I am late for something?
On the reading front, I didn't do half bad this week. In print, I finished "The Memory Thief" and I really enjoyed it. I look forward to seeing Emily Colin again at the UCF Book Festival. Then I started Patti Callahan Henry's latest "And Then I Found You", which is the She Reads feature in April and also a UCF Book Festival highlight for me.
On audio, I finished "January First" by Michael Schofield, and I should have lots to say about that when I get the review written! Holy moly, what a train wreck. I also finished the Rod Stewart Autobiography (narrated by Simon Vance, who defies description) and can't remember the last time I laughed so hard. What a great listen! I am now just starting Jojo Moyes' "Me Before You", which is a book that has received nothing but stellar reviews.
I am hoping to lay low today honestly. If my daughter decides to work at the animal shelter, she will be on her own this time around based on my stomach and her lovely attitude lately. The boy has a poster project to complete (ugh). I'm thinking I might need a nap. What does everyone have on their agenda today?
