In Search of a Pick-Me-Up

I had a fairly decent weekend. We took the kids to the harbor for some fish ‘n chips and ice cream. Not at the same time of course and then on the way back hit some fresh produce stands for THE best strawberries ever. I mean, these strawberries would make you drool. I am still thinking about them and hoping that there are some left when I get home tonight.

Even though the weekend was pretty nice, I am still exhausted and about to fall asleep at my keyboard. I will talk to the doctor about this tomorrow at my regular appointment. I have read many books on Lupus and checked out a lot of information online, but I am still unable to get a handle on it. When you look normal on the outside.. people forget that you are not feeling that great and then expect too much from you. Heck, I expect too much from me and forget to rest and end up doing a bunch or chores or errands.

Anyway..since I am about to nod off. I will cut this short today and hope for a better day tomorrow.


Addicted to Blogs

In case you haven’t heard, blogging is pretty popular right now. Yep, you heard it from me first. Of course, I never thought I would have a blog of my own. Not one that was regularly updated anyway . Who has the time these days? Well, apparently a lot of people do!

I have been checking out book blogs or blogs about books and there are just so many wonderful ones out there. My book group doesn’t seem to have any problems coming up with great suggestions, but I am always looking for the “best book of all time” so having access to these additional resources is just great!

The only problem is that now that I have so many favorites, I find myself reading more online material than the old fashioned printed know.. what we old folks call BOOKS. This one site sent me a book so I could join an online discussion. I am reading that book now and then another site offered to send me a book as well and now I have so many books that I am back to having no time to read. It’s a vicious cycle.

If you enjoy reading and want to take a look as what others are reading, check out these great blogs:
