Never give a sick kid red Gatorade

‘Nuff said.

I’m not the only one sick. But I keep reminding myself that tomorrow, I get to sleep in.

I have more heavy-duty typing today than yesterday. The second half of Ruby Key is the section that has most of the new material, though I typed in about 11,000 new words yesterday. You won’t notice the extra until the WIP meter starts overflowing on the top bar. Since I’m typing in new material right now, that may take a while.

Cannot believe how tired I am. But, as Robin reminded me, yes, I have to kill myself on this, (Her exact words—Go kill yourself on this.) but it’s for a good cause.

Interesting woman, is Robin.

Never, ever use purple ketchup to make meatloaf. It doesn’t look right.

Keep going, Holly, you’re doing great!

My husband suggested gatorade one morning after a hardcore birthday celebration…was purple and not a good idea. When we were kids my mom would make us jello when we were sick–but not chill it. We would drink the juice instead and it always helped. Plus it tasted good. 🙂 I’ve not done that as an adult. Seems like too much work, I suppose.

And yeah, 11k in one day!!! Was that editing or new writing? Pretty darn good regardless!

Or purple grape juice. I learned that the hard way… as a child.

Sick kid + grape juice + ugly sage green couch = never, EVER, drinking grape juice again.

It’ll be worth it! Hang in there. And oh, I bet that sleeping-in sounds good.
