What's going on around here...?

Well, for starters, I am sick. It's been quite some time since I have said that. One of my mottoes is "God never gives you more than you can handle." For months I have been stressed about many many things, primarily finances. But I have not been sick. Oh, the sickies have tried to get me, but I fought them off.

Sunday, I started feeling the onset of the sickies and I fought as hard as I could, but the sickies won this round. However, yesterday, we received a huge check for some forensic work hubby did last month. That allowed us to get pretty much caught up on all the bills. So now, I can be sick and not have to worry about money. At least for another few weeks.

As for me, my Robin Hood fandom is quiet at the moment, although we are gearing up for a couple of events. My writing chapter will be e-mailing out contest entries to judges (of which I am one) so I'll be judging those here shortly. I am on schedule with my one-episode-a-day Robin Hood rewatch and have jettisoned through the first four and half seasons of Stargate Atlantis, too. Gotta love John Sheppard--a man in uniform with a gun just really thrills me for some reason. I have hooked up with a gal in Florida that I know from my RH fandom for online writing accountability. We check-in on Tuesdays with word counts. The goal is 2K a week.

My goodness kiddo!!! It sounds awful for you. I know money worries and I know sick, and I know it's not a good combination. Take lots of Vitamin C with lots of fluids and it will help flush it out, AND lots of rest ...

Sure hope the checks keep coming in so you can stay caught up and get ahead.

Is your Florida friend one that checks on your book writing or just your RH stuff.

Hope you feel better soon.
Love you,

Get well soon, Jen!

2k a week is a solid goal. Good for you.
