Still not dead yet

Pain led to rest. Migraine this morning, too. It was just a combination of unpleasant things. It was an Unpleasant Things Convention, with my body as the hotel.

Talked to my kidlet yesterday. I really miss her terribly. *sigh* She's reading Half-Blood Prince - she's "in the hundreds". So I got a full-on plot dissection of the first hundred-plus pages of the book. She's very... um... detail-oriented, she is. :)

I told her I finished it. She asked what I was reading next.

"Well, I'm reading all of the magazines that came in this weekend."

"No, Mommy - what book are you reading next?"

She never asks that! I guess she picked it up from me - I always ask her. I checked the to-read pile. "The Hallowed Hunt by Lois McMaster Bujold. Tom lent it to me. The author usually writes science fiction, but this is in her fantasy series. I think you'd like her stuff."

"Maybe I could read some. When I'm done with Harry Potter."

"Maybe you could."

Now I get to re-read the early Vorkosigan stuff, see if it's Elayna-appropriate...

I then got to hear the entire plot of the Animal Inn book she read right before Harry Potter. Such is life.

Then I had the joy of talking to my mother. My obligatory Boston shot, when she said that Elayna and I should have more mother/daughter time: "The Y in Boston is walking-distance from her school - we could go swimming after school sometimes." Mom allowed as how Elayna would love that.

Today... organized Boston house-type stuff, exhaustively and exhaustingly. Will now go watch House. Unrelated to Boston house. Except for there being doctors involved in both cases.

I am so tired.

And I do miss my girl. Lots and lots. Two and a half weeks...
