When it rains it... well... when it rains eventually it has to stop and the sun has to come back out!

Isn't that the way the saying goes? Well, that's how I remember it anyways! :)

Today was one of those days...

I haven't been feeling all that right for the past couple of days so my doctor sent away for some tests... which of course takes DAYS - which doesn't sound like a long time... but this morning I woke up thinking I was going to die! Just die! I can laugh about how fast my wonderful husband bolted out of bed and rushed me to the hospital NOW... but in the morning it was not that funny! Anyways... it turns out that somehow I have a severe kidney infection... how, when, and how can not be explained by me at all... apparently I missed that memo! Anyways, it wasn't the ideal way of waking up... but after some great doses of antibiotics and making sure that everyone was good at work to cover some of my next couple of days... oh yeah... and lots of sleep... I planted my ass in my bed with Wylie's book! :) See where my sun is coming out to shine!!!

I read it from front to back... no interruptions... in complete silence. I was SOOOO engrossed with the book I actually forgot about how shitty I felt! Wylie - it was AWESOME! I loved the characters... well... Simon and Ellis! Hated Cynthia from the start... bitch! :) It was such a wonderful story! Absolutely loved it! If you haven't already read it... you don't know what your missing and seriously need to devote yourself to some reading. Check out the book at Ellora's Cave or just go visit Wylie on her blog... but seriously do yourself a favour and read this book!
I'll be hanging around here for the next couple of days, so I think I might work backwards and dig into Bella Fiore... I read your little excerpt... and was hooked at... that's right my lovers with an S! :) Ummm... yeah... I think I need these next couple of days to myself.

Anyways, I hope everyone is having a wonderful day, and I'll be catching up on my blogger reading in the next couple of days... hopefully... I won't be conked out from the meds! :)

Oh... Quizes... you gotta love them.

I had some extra time this morning and stumbled upon Amy's post... I love these little quizes!!! There's always something that rings true when you read it about yourself... then again it's sometimes way off! LOL!!! :)

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

No picture today... I'm too tired to even look!

So I had to show my face since I've been hiding out at work! I'm sorry about the memes I've missed and the one's I should have posted... I can't believe how quickly time flies when you're working. Today was my first day off in a very long time and I've been at one doctor's appointment to the next all day and then real estate agent, houses, houses, and some more houses after that... now it's 6pm and I'm seriously wondering what happened to the day. Hopefully when my assistant manager gets back I'll at least feel like I have a life again.

House hunting continues... and all my goals have been shoved aside. Yet again. Finished all the books and judging... Yay! But haven't done much else... even this post as short as it is took me two days to write... :) The top half was written on my last day off - Friday... and this part I'm continuing today! So sad!!!

Anyways... enough of me boring you. Just wanted to show myself and say Happy Mother's Day to all! Oh wait... just thought of a picture!

Hope you all have a wonderful Mommy's Day!!!

Hanging on!

So just hanging in... checking out your blogs whenever I can. Missing you all SO much that it's depressing! I have tomorrow off, so I will be getting back to my writing, or rather editing then. I hope my brain wakes up along with my body!

I was touched to be nominated by TL for the thinking blogger award. Thanks TL!!! Touched, and shocked. Quite honestly, I don't feel like I have said one smart thing in 4 months.... and I don't remember anything prior to that! My memory has been washed away! :) I'll definitely do the whole entire selecting 5 other bloggers, but I have to do it tomorrow - I need to think about this. ;) Until then I will try to live up to the title... okay... that can start tomorrow too. :)
As for the judging... just finishing off. I have to tell you that the last book I read was the first one in a very long time that I wasn't able to predict the ending to. Actually, I don't think I was anywhere near predicting it! Hell, I was playing ball in a completely different ball park - you know what I'm saying? That being said. I enjoyed it immensely! Adding it to my great books I've read mental pile. :)
All right... heading off to worky... by the way the house hunt is not as fun as I remembered it! Probably because we're looking for houses in Oshawa and we live in Toronto... so every time we go off to see one it's a couple of hours of a drive. I know it will be worth it in the end. I just know it will!
