Read A Thon Update and A Bit of Me


Happy Saturday one and all!!   Hope you are all doing great and enjoying your long weekend.  For me, and you might have noticed yesterday, that I did a disappearing act.  I was sitting in my recliner reading Private by James Patterson ( love his books) and WHAM!!!   It came from left field.
I have a very low immune system due to Epstein Barr, also called Chronic Fatigue Immune Deficiency Syndrome  CFIDS, and catch everything.  Except my body can't fight viruses so it puts me down.  I went to bed at 11:30am and woke up this morning.  So needless to say, I did not make much progress in reading.  Going to try again today.

Just a few chapters.  


Hosted by Danielle at There's A Book
From her blog:
We all leave our “footprint” on the world, in one way or another. We each, individually, do something or are someone that makes the world a little better just by being here. I created this weekly meme to get to know the blogging community I love just a bit better. To know what makes them tick, outside of books, that is. Each week I will post a question to be answered in the following week’s “A Bit of Me(Me)”. Check back each Saturday to get the info for next week’s post and link up with your current post right here.
This week's question:  Tell everyone a little bit about your favorite Birthday

Yes...I know...what am I thinking, but, my 50th was very special.  It was a combo celebration spent with the favorite people in my life.  Not only did we celebrate my bday but 3 days later, it was our 25th wedding anniversary.   Hubby and I rented a limo, made dinner reservations at a fancy smancy restaurant, that was an hour away in Boston, a table for 6.   Hubby, myself, and our 2 sons and their gfs all went out for a night on the town.  We were all dressed in formal attire.  One son surprised us with CDs he made of songs from the year we were married, for the hour's ride .  We sang and were silly on our way to the restaurant.   And yes, I will admit, since we were all of the legal age to drink, we toasted to a wonderful celebration.  The dinner was fabulous.  And on our way home, we made one more stop.  We surprised the kids and went to the top of the Prudential Center and had an after dinner drink on the 52nd floor, overlooking all of Boston, absolutely beautiful !!!  And then continued our silliness and singing for the ride home.  It was a wonderful night that I will never forget.

Oh, that does sound like a fabulous birthday! I visited Boston once, a long time ago; what a beautiful city! I have some fond memories of my time there.

What a beautiful memory! Thanks for sharing that lovely story :) Sorry to hear you were unwell. I haven't had bad ones in a while, but for me, migraines used to come out of nowhere. Not fun :(

Hi Cheryl,
I hope that you get well soon and are staying in bed with plenty of fluids, drifting off to sleep between the pages to get rest.
I had Epstein Barr too and now have Fibromalgia along with Hashimoto's Thyroditis and Sarcoidosis.
Maybe there should be some type of vaccination for EB.

Take care,
Carol Wong
