Things ...

You know those weeks? Those weeks where all you feel capable of doing is watching season four of Supernatural and playing angry birds?

Yeah. This has been my week.

Some of you may or may not know that Patrick has been sick the past couple of weeks with what I thought was a cold but turned out to be strep throat and scarlet fever. He’s feeling much better now but for a few days there it was pretty tiring. So I’ve basically been a potato this week.

I haven’t picked up my book (Railsea by China Mieville) since … Sunday? Something like that anyway. Same with my cross stitching. It’s funny that when things like this happen, I don’t turn to the things that make me feel better, and more myself, but to things like TV and iPhone games. Hmmmm.

Although I have to say I did enjoy S4 of Supernatural. Especially the epic and no doubt doomed love story between Dean and Castiel. I enjoyed that very much.

I also hadn’t gone to the movies for a couple of weeks, which – for me – is unsettling because normally I go every Thursday after work. I broke that streak this week with The Amazing Spider-man which was pretty good, even though it’s awfully soon for a Spider-man reboot.

Today we’re doing lots of nothing and I’m revelling in it. I’m even hoping to open my book!

Oh! And follow my tumblr:  :D :D

Poor, poor Patrick! (And poor, poor you.) I'm glad to hear he's on the mend.

Sometimes you just need weeks like the one you're having! Not the stress of course, but what you're doing to take care of yourself. Sorry to hear about Patrick being sick and the toll it's taken on you too :( Hope you are BOTH feeling better soon!

I always turn to the iPhone games for some reason too, even if I'm not really enjoying myself as much as I would be while doing something different. They're still easier than doing anything else.

And glad to hear that Patrick is doing better! That sounds like a rough patch of illness.

Kristen: They're a mindless and addicting distraction - lol. Thank you :-)
