After a miserable night of sleeping (not the coughing so much — just couldn’t get and stay asleep — and I had HORRIBLE dreams), I woke up to Littlest Monster’s fever. She’d complained of headache and sore throat the day before. All parents of school-aged kids are probably whispering “strep!” and you’d be right.
Meanwhile tonight Middle Monster also began running a temp. She doesn’t have a sore throat though, and since she had her tonsils out last year, I don’t think it’s strep.
And of course, I’m still coughing and coughing and coughing, although my voice is better. So I took Bethanie’s recommendation and bought some Airbourne tonight, as well as a general vitamin. I got out of the habit of taking anything, which certainly hasn’t helped my immunity. I’m determined to get over this thing!
I didn’t write until 10:30 tonight, but I did accomplish the following:
- NSR: revised next section, 1528 words.
- NSR: jotted notes for next (new) section in Quinn’s POV. Will attempt that tomorrow.
I’m running behind on the revision. I scheduled myself 10K a week, so I need to get 5K done by Monday. With all the sick monsters, I don’t know if that’ll happen.

Oh, yuck! So sorry about the sick monsters! 🙁 I hope they all get (and stay) better soon, and I hope the Airbourne works for you. Still doing the trick here… *quickly raps desk*
That’s good progress you’re making, too! (Even if you are behind ).My first pirate project is done, so I’m going to come up with another one this morning (since I’m AWAKE at this ungodly hour – on a Saturday, no less – and have nothing better to do).
Thanks, Bethanie — they are better today, but still contagious, so we three stayed home from basketball, while Princess Monster and That Man went for her game.
Yay for pirates! I hope you were able to get a lot done this morning!
Ouch. Hope the monsters get better soon.
How’s the weather? The temp has only gotten up to 22 today, same high as yesterday. 😯
Have a great weekend.
