News From the Nest

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! 


  1. I easily get nervous when I see needles so surgery is a Big NO NO for me. I am looking forward to your next post.

  2. Here's to a speedy recovery. For both of you :)

    Oh, and I think you're very, very cool. ;)

  3. I'm so sorry to hear that you have been so ill, what a sweet hubby you have to be taking care of you though! I hope you kick the cold in the rump, and get to feeling better quick like! Take care!

  4. hope all goes well with hubby and that you continue to recover from the plague!

  5. Thanks, Halloween Spirit!

    I guess the best thing about the cold is that I've gotten very good at Fable 2, and I've had full posession of the t.v. remote during daylight hours for awhile, now. Usually, I'm too busy to sit down and watch t.v. during the day!

  6. Yes, you are in fact, very, very cool. :)

    Hope husband makes a speeedy receovery. I hate needles too so I feel for him...surgery, of any kind, not good!

    Hope you are both feeling 100% soon....you know that there are only 227 days until Halloween right?


  7. Hope that the two of you will both feel better soon!

    And yes, I also think you are very cool!
