Murphy's Law or more like Amy World!

I'm so excited to have my blog up and running finally and I wanted to spend the last few days blogging, visiting other blogs especially those of my visitors, alerting my readers to some giveaways I've discovered. And then, lo and behold in the early hours of Thursday morning I came down with a virus. I've had a bit of a cold, more a nuisance than anything but now it's developed into one of those unwelcome (like a bug is ever welcome!) summer bugs. So yesterday I spent in bed. I did get a little bit of reading done but mostly slept and watched some trash TV! (having an excuse to watch bad TV is never quite as good as it sounds!) I'm feeling a little better today although still under the weather. But I wanted to blog while I felt up to it.

I think hubbie was trying to scare the virus out of me or something. I woke up as he was leaving for work this morning. He always turns the TV on in the morning and checks the weather and flips through the channels while he's getting ready. After he left, I was lying in bed trying to decide how I felt and I turned on the TV. Well I just about leapt right out of the bed because staring back at me from the TV screen was a gigantic, furry tarantula, beady little eyes and all! My heart was beating a mile a minute watching his legs move around and seeing his little fangs. I knowI yelled because several of the cats were staring at me as if to say "what's her problem now?" I am not at all fond of spiders or most small creepy, crawly things. I'm telling you, if I had been planning to drink coffee this morning, I no longer needed it! I was wide awake! I don't suggest waking up this way. When I looked up at the TV screen again, that large spider had been joined by several buddies and they all seemd to be walking towards the camera. I turned the channel! Blech!

I want to thank all the bloggers who visited me on my first day! I was so happy to see all of you. I promise to visit your blogs as soon as I am feeling 100% and am able to spend some time around here! Have a great day! It's Friiiiiiday! yay!



  1. Hope your feeling better, and be glad those creepy things weren't on your actual tv screen. Yikes! :)

  2. Feel better! Give all the kitties a hug for me!

  3. Hi Amy,
    Get well soon! Being surrounded by kitties can be very comforting when under the weather!

  4. Get well soon Amy! And I love your blog title, sounded like a book title to me. Welcome to the blogging world and have fun!!!

  5. Summer viruses are the worst. I hope you feel better soon!

  6. Sorry to hear about 'the' bug, getting sick in the summer is the worse when it's already hot and sticky outside : ( Hope your feeling better-if you are check out Book Blogs.ning (if you haven't already) it's a great group to join for readers and writers.

    Merry Weather
