Life Lately:
This just hasn't been my week at all...  My daughter is sick again.  She was throwing up Sunday night and then absolutely fine all day Monday and Tuesday.  Then Wednesday she got a fever and started to cough.  I took her to the doctor on Friday because the fever wouldn't go away and she was crying in pain because her throat is so sore....so she is on antibiotics again.  Poor kid just can't win!  I also had a 4 day long migraine....so that's always a lot of fun.  THEN Friday morning my husband discovers his car was broken into and things were taken.  Sooo needless to say, with all that craziness, I've gotten behind on visiting and commenting on other blogs.  I'm hoping next week is better for us.  Fingers crossed!!

  2. I'm so sorry you had just a dreadful week. I hope your daughter feels better very soon. A four day migrains sounds like hell and you really have my sympathy. I can't even imagine how painful that was. I'm sick of thieving morons thinking they have the right to steal from hardworking people because they are too lazy to work for things they want. It sickens me. I really hope this week is better for you guys.

    1. Thank you! Hopefully next week is a little better. The migraine was so bad. I haven't had one like that in a really long time. I think it's the crazy weather around here. It's been really cold one day and then hitting the mid 70s the next. That always messes with my head. My husband filed a police report but I doubt we will be getting anything back. My daughter's fever was a little lower this morning than it has been the past few days so I'm hoping that means it's finally breaking. She seems to have more energy today too so that's usually a good sign. Thanks again, I hope you have a great week!

  3. Goodness, I am so sorry to hear about your week! Sick children + sick mom is the WORST. My mom is sick right now (but it's not *too* bad, I think). She doesn't like taking medicine so half the time I feel sorry for her, but then I also get mad at her because she doesn't take medicine so OF COURSE she's still sick. -_- Le sigh!

    YAY for Flame in the Mist! I'm excited to read that one. I want to start it soon but I'm still trying to finish my April ARCs.

    I hope you enjoy all of your new books! Have a fantastic weekend, Julie. =)

    1. I am so excited for Flame in the Mist! I can't wait to start it. I couldn't believe I actually got it! lol

      And thank you, this week was definitely difficult, but it could always be worse. That's what I keep telling myself. My daughter's fever hasn't been quite as bad today and she seems a little more herself so I'm hoping we are going to kick the sickness quicker than last time.

      Hope you have a great weekend too, Alyssa!

  4. It stinks when you're loved ones get sick. Having a four day sickness is not fun.

    1. I feel so bad when she's sick because I feel helpless. Especially when she's in pain too. It breaks my heart. She seems to be doing a little better today so hopefully we caught it early and it won't last too long.

      Thanks Grace, I hope you have a great weekend!

  7. I'm so jealous that you got Flame in the Mist!! I hope you like it!
    Oh no! I hope your daughter feels better <3 4-day migraine?! My step-grandma drinks coffee and a migraine medicine. Doesn't take it away completely but it helps her some. Wow your week really wasn't good :/ Hopefully this coming week is much better.

    1. I do sort of the same thing as your grandma. Except instead of coffee, I drink a can of Pepsi really fast. It can sometimes help. Unfortunately this last time didn't seem like anything was going to help except waiting it out. It's rough sometimes. Especially because I have a kiddo so it's not like I can relax. lol

      I am so excited about Flame in the Mist! I was so surprised that I got it.

      Thanks Genesis! Hope you have a great week too!

  8. I AM SUPER JEALOUS of Flame in the Mist! I will definitely be checking back looking for review on that one.
    I hope the kidlet feels better soon! I also get terrible days-long migraines so I feel you. Never fun when that happens -- even worse when you're a mom, I bet.

    I liked Blood Rose and Geekerella so I will be bac[k to read those later. I hope the rest of your week is better!

    1. I couldn't believe I actually got a copy of Flame in the Mist! I was so surprised and I can't wait to read it.

      Thank you, my kiddo seems to be feeling a little better today. Her fever wasn't quite so high and she was acting a little more like herself. It hurts my heart when she's sick.

      I hope you have a great week too, Jessie!

    1. It definitely wasn't a good week. I'm hoping this one will be better but my daughter seems to be getting sicker so I doubt that's likely. I hate seeing her sick. It makes me so sad. I'm really excited to give Flame in the Mist a try. It sounds like it's going to be sooo good! Hope you have a great week, Brittany!

  10. I hope you have a much better week and enjoy all your new books. I don't usually read books with teen characters, but Flame in the Mist sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks so much! I'm really hoping this week goes a little better for us too. I wish my little one would start feeling better soon. We can't get her fever to break and she's so miserable. I've really been enjoying Young Adult books lately so I don't think the teenage characters will bother me too much (I hope) lol. It sounds like it's going to be really good so I'm excited.

  11. Ack that sounds like a terrible week! Sorry to hear that, hope you and your daughter are feeling better soon. And the theft thing... good grief that's awful. I'd be so mad... people are jerks!

    Anyway hope you have a nice weekend and a better week ahead. :)

    1. Thanks so much. I'm hoping her fever lets up soon. It's been 4 days! I hate seeing her sick, it breaks my heart. I still can't believe someone broke into our car. We live in a small town that used to be so nice, but I guess times are changing. So sad. People suck! lol

      Thanks, and I hope you have a great week too!

  12. Oh no! A sick kiddo AND a 4 day migraine? That sounds like a nightmare! I hope you are both feeling better. Great books this week! I also got my hands on Flame in the Mist. Enjoy all of these!

    1. It has been pretty miserable around here. My migraines have given me a few good days here so hopefully that continues so I can take care of my little one. She's so sick, I feel awful. I think it's the flu. The fever just won't go away! Glad to hear that you also got Flame in the Mist. It sounds like it's going to be so good! Hope you have a great week!

    1. Thank you so much! <3 She's still not doing so good right now. Can't get this fever to go away! Another trip to the dr may be in our future this week. I'm so excited for Flame in the Mist! I can't believe I got it. I'm still shocked. lol! I really liked Geekerella! I'm glad you are enjoying it too.

  16. Oh no!!! You had a terrible week. I started coughing yesterday and its miserable (and I'm an adult!) so I know your daughter must have been just feeling awful! Hopefully the antibiotic helps. And that sucks about your husbands car. I have had that happen to me before and it sucks.
    I hope this week is better! Hang in there!

    1. This was definitely an ugly week for us. I'm really hoping this week will be different but it's not looking that way because our little one can't kick this fever. It's been 4 days and I'm getting really nervous. I think it may be the flu. I still can't believe someone broke into his car in our little town. This used to be such a nice town but it's starting to go downhill and that's so sad.

      Thank you so much, Samantha <3 I hope you have a great week too!

    1. Thank you Lindsey! Unfortunately, she is still sick. This morning she woke up and her fever had come down a lot, but it seems to have spiked again. Ugghh! Frustrating! I'm really excited to give Flame in the Mist a try. I think it's going to be a good one! Hope you have a great week
