Feeling // It’s been a rough week. C came down with stomach flu Tuesday. She’s had a couple setbacks, but she’s better now. Thursday afternoon, I caught it, and it hit me all at once. One moment I was feeling just fine, and the next moment I was like:
Chills, fever, body aches, everything. It was awful. On top of that, I developed pharyngitis (no pain, oddly, but plenty of inflammation—enough to make me wheeze). I’ve got the wonderful Z-Pak now though, which usually kicks in pretty quickly. I think I’m on the upswing.
Celebrating // Obviously I didn’t get to attend Holy Week/Easter services as I’d hoped, but it’s okay. I can celebrate here at home. Happy Easter!
Watching // We had an impromptu family movie night last night and watched Tangled. This was the first time we’ve seen it. Fun movie! Maximus was my favorite.
Read This Week // I read four books this week, most of which were pretty quick reads:
- Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill
- This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki & Jillian Tamaki
- Our Endless Numbered Days by Claire Fuller
- The Dinner by Herman Koch
The Socratic Salon will be discussing Our Endless Numbered Days and Dept. of Speculation later this month (including a Twitter chat with Claire Fuller on April 13!) and The Dinner in May. So much to talk about with these books!
Currently Reading // I’m not exactly sure what I’m in the mood for right now. I’ve started the first few pages of Children of God by Mary Doria Russell and Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood…I’ll see which one sticks.
