I am home safe and sound from my great but LONG trip to California. I had a fantastic time at the RWA conference. The best part was, of course, getting to spend so much time with Janelle. We laughed a lot and napped a lot and talked books and business and RWA. I was really happy with how the board meeting went and the changes coming to the organization. Great stuff!
Unfortunately, I did get sick. I swear, I was fine Saturday when I left home. That very night I woke up in the middle of the night with a sore throat. The next day it got a lot worse and by the day after that my ears were totally clogged, my throat awful, my sinuses killing me. I ended up having to take a cab to an urgent care center on Tuesday, got 2 shots and 2 RX’s, walked across a highway (with a sore butt from where they gave me the shots!) to a drug store to fill the Rx’s, then took a cab back.
All’s well? You’d think so, right?
Uh, no. The antibiotic worked in knocking back the sinus & double-ear infections. But by Thursday night, they began to make me horribly ill so I had to stop taking them. So while I felt pretty good Wednesday, I wasn’t in 100% good health any other day I was there! Ugh!
I am home now, thank goodness, and going to see my own doctor today. Probably have to get on a different antibiotic since I can feel the infection coming back. Next time, I travel with Airborne!!!
Now, back to fun stuff. Like Janelle, I grabbed a LOT of loot in the goody room, and came home with tons of bookmarks, character cards, magnets, etc., that I want to share. So if you want to win a box of books & swag, just answer a question for me: What do you REALLY love to read now? Not talking about authors…what’s the genre/hot trend that you are really enjoying right now??
