Happy Friday!

Beware, Wizard might have a cold! Duck and cover people! Wizard + Cold = Nuclear Whining!

Which reminds me, the day that Wizard had surgery, CPA Boy was with me at the hospital.  So once Wizard was all prepped, his neurosurgeon came in and explain how “severe” Wizard’s ruptured disk was and what they needed to do. Trust me, he spared no details. Once they whisked Wizard off to the laboratory…uh operating room…CPA Boy and I were in the waiting room when he turns to me and says, “Mom we really dodged a bullet here.”

“How?” I asked.

“Because this is just a little major surgery. Dad could have a MAN COLD.”

I cracked up! And he was soooo right. (Yeah, I knew he was setting me up for a joke, but CPA Boy amuses me.)

But now this MAN COLD plague might have arrived. Sigh. People all around us are sick, so it’s not that much of a surprise. I’m not feeling that great either, but hoping it’s just sinuses.

Otherwise, I’m in the trenches with this book and the April 5th deadline bearing down. And oddly enough, life doesn’t stop just because I have a deadline, so there are family birthdays and assorted events :-)

Oh yeah, I saw my RA doc yesterday, and he gave me his diagnoses of, “You’re a workaholic.” I asked for a prescription to work faster and more efficiently, but he wasn’t helpful at all. He’s very helpful with my RA though.

This weekend we’re planning to go to middle sons if Wizard is well enough. If not, I’m going to be fulfilling my doctor’s “workaholic” diagnosis.

What are your weekend plans?

P.S. If you didn’t know, SAVAGED DREAMS, Book 1 in the Savaged Illusions Trilogy is up for preorder!

Amazon / B&N Nook / iBooks / Kobo / Google Play

    Poor Wizard. Poor you. I hope whatever it is, it passes quickly. :hugs: LOL about the MAN COLD joke. Way to go CPA boy for lessening the pre-surgery tension. As for the deadline, you can do this. Because you rock.

    Weekend… End of week… Well, I’m behind on my editing. I had planned to have this pass of Wish Hits the Fan done before I get the final edit notes back for Natural Causes on the 30th, but today is the 24th and I’m only halfway thru making notes, which means I’ll probably miss getting WHTF to my editor by the 15th and therefore miss my window and have to wait until the end of May. We’ll see how bad it is after this weekend, wherein I will be working furiously. And maybe fishing.

    I’m revisioning. I got the October HQ book back and have some big cuts/additions to make. My brain is refusing to focus on this. Spring is here, as evidenced by my sinuses (I feel your pain, Jen!) but it’s still nice to have the windows open. I’d hate to live in a hermetically-sealed building! I am going to try to read/listen to a book or two and maybe watch some spring training baseball. Loved having the World Baseball Classic the last couple of weeks!

    I am sooo lucky on the Man Cold front! LG hits the couch and hibernates. He doesn’t want me to talk to him, touch him, feed him, or otherwise acknowledge his existence until such time as he wanders in like a grumpy bear and asks to speak.

    Can’t wait for SAVAGED! Yayayayayay! Have a great weekend, witches!

    B.E. CPA boy is as bad as his dad when he has a cold :-) But it’s an ongoing family joke.

    Your schedule sounds as fun as mine. Hope you can get your edits done! Have a great weekend and maybe get in some fishing.

    Silver, I just grabbed my copy of SEAL MOON yesterday. It’s on my Kindle waiting for me.

    I’m with you on having the windows open–hope your nice weather holds.

    Wizard asks Alexa every day how his team (SF Giants) are doing in their Spring Training games.

    You are lucky on the Man Cold front, LOL! Have a great weekend!

    Oh no, poor you. I um mean poor Wizard ;). Men can be such babies. I hope Wizard gets through it without too much distress. It is really funny that CPA boy made that comment when Wizard was having back surgery ;). He must take care not to be too bad when he’s ill.

    You and your doctor have a great rapport. I love the conversations you two have!

    I’m sure you’re going to make the deadline. It seems that some way some how we always get the important stuff taken care of.

    Hubs wants me to go look at a farm with him. It’s an orchid farm and he’s thinking we should buy it and give him something fun to do. He has a green thumb so may be ;). Other than that no weekend plans.

    Have a wonderful weekend :)!

    Viki, Wizard is pretty miserable. Maybe tomorrow will be better. I really do feel for him, we just like to tease him about the dreaded Man Cold.

    You’re right that we someone get stuff done, but I could do without the fear thing :-)

    An orchid farms sounds pretty exciting to me. I didn’t know your hubby has a green thumb. I hope it works out!

    Hope PeeWee and your arm are doing better. Have a great weekend!
