because the puke party's over but done with

Phew! *wipes sweat off brow* that was a mean virus. She finally fell asleep of her own volition (I had suggested napping 3 times to which she responded in tears and vomit) at 2:30 in the afternoon, she woke at 6:30pm and we believe her fever broke around 5-ish. She had gone 32 hours on 4 hours of crappy sleep. We're taking it easy today, lots of games you can play in bed...

In other news, I knit my first wristlet (you know, fingerless glove) from this pattern and am now starting a pair for Jules... yay, me!

This meme thingy looked interesting and I was surprised I had read most of the list (sorry, but I'm not reading the Harry Potter books, no way, no how.) Oddly, all the books I hadn't read but had heard of, are ones I've been trying to coerce my mom into sending me... She refuses though, because my stuff doesn't usually arrive and she keeps promising to come and visit and bring them. But, what good is that when RIGHT NOW I've nothing to read. Anyway, instead of blathering on with the woe is me, here are the meme instructions: Look at the list of books below. Bold the ones you’ve read, italicize the ones you might read, cross out the ones you won’t, underline the ones on your book shelf, and place parentheses around the ones you’ve never even heard of.
