Why I Feel Like Junk

I miss you all!! I am still feeling like crap.

Here is why I am:
Hooked up to an IV
Have medicine streaming through a tube into my stomach 24/7
Practically living in my bathroom, living over Mr. Toilet
Losing about 1/2 pound a day
Fantasizing about food that I can't eat or keep down...

I am pregnant!

We are really excited about having a new baby, but pregnancy does not love me. Hopefully I've only got another month of this because my body is going to give out on me soon. Thank heavens for modern medicine. If I couldn't have all this stuff at home, I'd be in the hospital right now. But with it, I get to veg and be miserable at home. I have good days and bad days, and good parts of any days and I am in an okay day for the first time in a long time.

 The good news (or pathetic news, depending on how you want to look at it) I have been taking this time as an opportunity to catch up on my reality television--Dance Moms, Project Runway, Top Chef-Just Desserts, X-Factor, Say Yes to The Dress, What Not to Wear, VH1s Top Songs of the '00, and anything else Bravo, Lifetime, or TLC wants to throw my way. I'm not picky. My brain may be slowly eating itself with all of this tv, but it is what it is.

But I actually wrote a blog post here. It is my first blog post since I started blogging over there, and it actually has something to do with books and literature (it's called Lit Can Change Lives) instead of my current, embarrassing television habits.  Please check it out and leave a comment. :)

Oh! And more good news. Jolene Perry's book, The Next Door Boys, is out! I read this book for the first time about ten months ago. It was the first book I ever read by her and I loved it. So happy it was published. :) If you liked Meg's Melody, I really think you'll like The Next Door Boys. I should interview Jolene. Or maybe just post some of my favorite quotes from our emails....
