It’s Monday and I’m reading Thorn


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date




Well this week was a weird one. The kindergartener stayed home from school on Friday as he wasn’t feeling well and he got a bit worse on Saturday with a bit of a high fever. And then as if the fever was the thing that his body needed, after some fever meds, lots of water and some rest, he was all better.

Of course all better meant that he and the brother were up at 450 talking and giggling loudly. I don’t know about you but when I am woken up at that time, I go into FULL ALERT MODE. My brain is awake and I cannot calm it down. So yes I was awake at 0450 on Sunday. I was also awake at 0530 on Saturday but at least that seems like a more reasonable time.

But you know what, Sunday is a nice sunny day, unlike the past few windy rainy days, everyone seems healthy today, so we might be able to go out today!

  1. I’m glad everyone is feeling better! I hope you get to enjoy the day outdoors. My kids are on Spring Break this week, so I took most of the week off from work. We’re working on our garden.


  2. I am glad everyone is feeling better. At our house, it’s like a never ending cycle, the kid gets sick, then we get sick, then everyone gets healthy, and the kid gets sick again. The side effects of full time Pre-K! Sigh..

    How are you finding Bossypants?
