Icky Day, All Day

The weekend was wet and cold and Monday is more of the same. I am home sick today. I don't know what I have...  some sort of stomach virus. I seem to have all the usual ugly symptoms that accompany stomach upset except vomiting. God is good cause that particular symptom never ends well for me. I still feel rather icky. My stomach just doesn't feel very good.

Last night I worked on my WIP a bit. I did some moving of scenes and getting the structure more organized. I actually felt like I accomplished something at one point. It suddenly seemed as if some things were jelling. We'll see. The thing needs a huge rewrite and that terrifies me no end. I'm going to continue to get the random sections from NaNo 2011 woven into it and then see what's missing. I see more writing in my future. I just wish Simon would start his incessant chatter again. I write much better when he just dictates it to me.

I ate scrambled eggs at lunch and some bacon. Well, I was starving by then since I was too sick to eat breakfast. And I felt like my stomach had settled down. However, the eggs didn't set well and I felt worse afterward. In fact, well... never mind. Best not share that bit. Suffice it to say that I could have driven to Florida for free. Must go now. Stomach just doesn't fancy sitting up. I've been lying down most of the day, watching Midsomer Murders. Probably why my writing sounds suspiciously British today. LOL.

Anyway, I'm thinking soup for supper. We'll see. Hope your day has been better than mine.


  1. let's see.. my favorite is always chicken noodle.. or chicken rice. No, chicken noodle.
    Yes, that's it, have some chicken noodle soup, you'll feel better.

  2. I alternate between chicken noodle and minestrone. :-) Whichever soup you have/had, I hope you feel better soon.

    It was good to hear you made some progress on the WIP. It may take Si some time to warm up to the revision process. His words! You are changing them! Speaking from personal experience with a strong-minded character of my own ...

  3. Chicken noodle - my husband's recipe. It does wonders. Mom always did the soda crackers and 7Up - pretty good, too, but I like Sprite better now. I do hope that you are better now and keeping an war tuned for Simon's whispers. It's time for him to show up.

  4. Campbells Cream of Chicken and Ritz crackers. Only mildly better but maybe a night's sleep will help.
