Bed Rest

Writing Status - Edits
Mood - Blah
Playing on ipod - Nada

It's official -- I'm on bed rest today.  Yesterday was my first "day" of returning to life as usual and I blew it by doing too much.   When the hubs found out I wasn't feeling so hot last night, he was none too happy.

I'm visiting Taste of Kiwi, sharing a writer's tip.  Click HERE to go on over and say hello.  I suppose I'll be in my bed in the meantime, working on edits and reading.  My eye was getting better but the nasty crud along the top came off, so it burns really badly.  That means long stretches of staring at just about anything hurts.  At least the shingles are in the healing phase now and will gone soon.

Hope all of you have a fantastic weekend, without mother nature interrupting with storms and chaos.  We're under tornado warnings here in 'Bama, which is nothing new.  The south seems to be a breeding ground for Twisters and unstable weather.

It's hard not to do too much when you feel like you can. Sorry you're on bed rest, but enjoy the time of being able to snooze. Hope the eye is better soon. Love you!

I understand "getting back to life" - but take the bed rest and behave!
I didn't and it's taken me twice as long to get back up to speed.

Um,while resting you could finish a certain story everyone is waiting for ...

;)

The shingles is actually varicella-zoster virus, but is called herpes zoster due to the appearance of the rash.

All kinds of herpes go around, always good to be informed of your particular brand. :)

Oh, I know you are restless but you can't over do it with all your body has been through lately. Try to lay back and relax. Are the kids allowed to be around you now? If so at least you get to spend time with them. :) Get better soon.
