Welcome to the Infirmary

Today is the release party for my sequel to Reluctant Guardian, The Elementalist! I am excited. I really am, but it's this debilitating cold I've contracted that makes it look otherwise. It's after nine in the morning and I'm still in my pajamas in bed, watching Captain Kirk act in a hotel commercial. There has got to be something better to watch  than this.

The alternative is to get into a nice, hot bath with a good book. That could clear my sinuses, but then I'd just lie there thinking of all the things I should be doing, like laundry, dishes, writing, ordering prizes for the release party, caring for my sick child. I think I'll just take a bath. The bathtub is truly a love/hate relationship, but he's loyal and always there, waiting. He's sounding better and better.

My 10 year old is home sick today too, but he has different symptoms, like puking his brains out. I'm grateful today that I'm not doing that.

So, now I will force myself into my loyal bathtub, I will read a book while I think of all the things I need to do, and then I will get out, sit by my window and watch the miracle of a winter wonderland in March... the first real snowstorm (for us) of the season.

Congratulations on your release party. Sorry you are sick, but sometimes a bath and a good book can do wonders.

Congratulations on your sequel; I like sequels because when I get to the end of a really good book, I always want to know what happens next for the characters.
Sorry that you're not feeling well, and I hope that you feel better soon. I hope your son feels better too; maybe he could take some Pepto-Bismol? And maybe a nice warm bowl of chicken soup for you?

It's better to take a nap in your bathtub about 15 minutes. You can totally get rid of the stress.
