It's been a plague-filled week here at the Nest, which is why my posting has been spotty. I came down with a nasty cold last week, and am still suffering from it and those unattractive side-effects that come with being sick. Sweet Mr. ShellHawk took mercy on me and brought home two bottles of cold meds and a box of lotion-soaked tissues for my poor nose. I want to note here and now: red and green should only be for Christmas, and for Halloween lighting, not-other things that are sort of gross and come out of... Well. Never mind.
I'm starting to get on top of it though, just in time for the next minor challenge. For his 40th birthday-in addition to all the top-shelf booze and dissectable owl barf-Mr. ShellHawk got a surgical consultation and goes in for surgery this week. It's nothing life-threatening, thankfully, and is quite a "routine" surgery, but, well, surgery is still not on anyone's top ten list of Fun Things To Do. I'll be home with him, playing nursie (not in the "fun, roll-playing costume" kind of way), and won't be posting until next week sometime. I'll still be checking for comments, however, so you can still enter the UPrinting giveaway or tell me how very, very cool you think I am.
Just kidding. Sheesh!
