Yesterday I was extremely sick. I had taken the kid to the doctor for his poor tummy that had kept us both awake for four nights, and I was freaking out because I thought I was going to have to excuse myself to the restroom* to puke while the doc was in there examining my child. What kind of mother would I have looked like if I would've left my 4 year old in there alone with his doc to tell him about his 'symptoms' all by himself?
Basically the doc told me that he's faking it! I had no clue that a 4 year old's mind is capable of concocting a scheme so grand that it not only kept him out of school for a day, but also kept us both awake for 4 nights! Amazing. I don't think I learned that until I was at least 10. Is he now going to be sneaking out of his bedroom window at the age of 6? I'm beginning to wonder. Needless to say, after the doc told him he was okay yesterday, he slept like a baby last night - instead if sitting up all night crying like one. I'm guessing that my 'sickness' yesterday must have came from lack of sleep, because after getting a good night's sleep last night I woke up fine and dandy this morning.
I'm grinning from ear to ear right now as I have been since waking up. You wanna know why? Sure you do. It's because I know all of those telemarketers and collection agencies and credit card companies are calling my cell right as we speak only to find out that I've changed my number! I thought it cost like $20 or so to change a cell number with AT&T, but obviously it doesn't, because Pup was able to do it for me last night, and now I only have to give my new number to the people that I want to call me, and that list will be very short my friends, let me tell ya. I even considered not giving the new number to my mom, but being as how we're living in the same house right now that could cause a teensy problem. As of right now only 2 people have this number, and it's been a lovely quiet morning.
I'm exited to announce that I get to do a review for someone who can actually put together a proper sentence! Author Rebbie Macintyre is mailing me an ARC copy of her book Cast the First Stone. If you know me at all then you know how much I like to read, and you will understand my excitement. Ms. Macintyre also has another book due out in Feb. '10 called A Corner of Universe. The plot line for this work goes something like this:
With hopes of saving her floundering marriage, Chicago physician's wife Zoe Sterling welcomes her adult stepson into her home on Universe Street, but her well-meaning intentions ignite events that jeopardize everything she holds dear--including the life of her unborn child.
She's also asked that maybe I possibly review that one for her, also. Oh yes I will. I can't wait. Check back soon, dear readers, for my review of Cast the First Stone, as it should be on it's way to me right now via postal mail.
