It's Been A Very Long Month

So, it's been a month of Sunday's since I've posted anything. I didn't mean to go this long between posts, but I haven't felt up to it.
For the past several weeks, I've been sick. It started out as bronchitis, and it progressed to pneumonia. So, I've been quarantined to the bed or couch, and was told to do as little as possible.

Some day's it's taken a lot for me to even get online because of the little energy I've had. But, I feel better now. I have a Doctor's appointment next week, and I know he'll be telling me that I am on my way to being fabulously healthy once again.

Jack's been a trooper throughout all of this. He doesn't cook, so I've had more than my share of sandwiches and soup out of a can. But, he's brought home some really good take-out, and has hovered over me like a good partner should. He has even, are you ready for this, put dishes in the dishwasher, emptied the dishwasher, did the laundry, swiffered the house and gave the dogs a bath! I KNOW he's ready for me to get back on my feet again. I can tell every time he grumbles as he is doing household chores.

I tease him about it of course just like he deserves!

Today some of our friends are having a Movie and Game night tonight. I've insisted that he go and have some fun tonight. After some persuading, he's agreed to go, although he is reluctant to leave me behind. I told him he needed to have some fun and just be Jack for a while, instead of nursemaid to his partner.

The good thing about him being gone is I'll have total control of the television and computer. GO ME! Unfortunately, there is never anything on television on Saturday night, so I bet I curl up with a book instead. Shawn Lane's new book is being released this weekend, plus Ava March's book was released this week, too! So many fabulous books to read, so little time!

Other than Jack, there has been one other person that is always there for me. She's been my sunshine when I've had some very dark days. I never knew I would be so lucky and blessed to have such a sweet and fabulous friend (sister) in my life. Thank you for being you, Gorgeous, you know I love you. MUAH!

I hope my friends here have a safe and FABULOUS weekend! To thank y'all for hanging in there with me, I thought I would provide some delicious eye candy as well!

Your Friend,



  1. Jack you poor thing, I'm sorry to hear you've been sick. While it's nice to have time to lounge in bed or on the sofa when it's because you're sick it sucks. I hope you continue to improve quickly.

    Jack sounds like such a great guy. You're lucky to have each other. Hope he has a good time tonight.

    I hope you have a good night reading, there certainly are lots of great books out to enjoy. Enjoy your weekend and get better real soon.

    Thanks for the yummy eye candy ;)

  2. I am very glad you are feeling better! We've all been worried about you!
    It seems like it's one of those summers, huh?
    Jack better be taking good care of you, or I'll give him a piece of my mind!
    Have fun having the remote all to yourself!

  3. Fabulous eye candy, Shay!! Thanks ;)

    I'm so glad you are feeling better. Being sick bites, but it sounds like Jack has been taking good care of you. And he did housechores and everything!
