not feeling great

I've been sick for a week now and it is really getting me down. It started with a fever/flu, moved to sinuses, then cough and now conjunctivitus (pinkeye). This last one is the worst as my eyes are itching, watery and very red. I went to the doctor today and got some drops so hopefully I will start to see improvement tomorrow. I'm worried that Lily is going to get sick too, she felt very hot this evening. It's hard to tell because it is so warm outside.

Heading to the island next week. It will be nice to have a different way to keep the girls busy. Aaron will be away again for my birthday but he bought me beautiful diamond earrings so he's forgiven - LOL.

Whew, where was I?

Ok, so I'm a sporatic blogger, sue me. Not that anyone reads this except me and the odd time Aaron, LOL.

Anyway, Arden and I have challenged ourselves to read 10 books each this summer. I am getting ready to start #6. She is a little stalled but is reading 3 books at the same time. I'm not sure she is going to be the reader that I was at her age but hopefully it will come.

So far I have read:

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyers
Wicked by Gregory McGuire
Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvik
Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom
A Boy of Good Breeding by Miriam Toews

My next read is Shanghai Girls by Lisa See

I love summer!
