Low key weekends and flu bugs

I know this is super late, but yesterday I must have come down with what is hopefully a 24 hour flu bug. If it's not over by 8pm tonight, I'll start to get a littler worried. Even though I called in sick, this is the first time I've felt like blogging all day!

Let's talk about how laid back my weekend was...until it wasn't.

Friday was a work day for me this week. Nothing spectacular happened. I went for my nightly run/walk training.

I finished Fever, the second book in the Breathless Trilogy by Maya Banks. It was a little too unbelievable for me and I didn't love it as much as I loved the first one. Not that I don't always want a HEA, but sometimes a guy doing a total 180 over a chick isn't believable, even to me! The third one comes out in August, and I need to add it to my calendar to remember to pick it up, lol.

Saturday I finished off the week with my 5th run, so I managed to do that ONE thing on my weekly goal, lol. I was definitely proud of myself and am excited to see what this week brings! Lunch with a friend at yummy Outback, all healthy and only one slice of their brown bread!

Saturday evening I continued my self imposed exile and read the book Real by Katy Evans. I loved it! So hot, so swoonworthy and Remy is totally going on my book boyfriend list! Sure he has his flaws, his demons but that's what rounds out his bad boy persona. I need more bad boys in my boring life.

Sunday I went to church, got to sing with the band, yay! Ate lunch with my dad at The Lucky Dill, though I'm not sure if I should be cursing the food since I ended up with a stomach ache a few hours later. Even with the nauseousness, I went ahead and met with my friends at Marble Slab for National Ice Cream day!

Shouldn't have had the ice cream but I thought my sickness would pass. Not so much. By the time I got home I was in the bathroom frequently, finally able to fall asleep after 4am only to be woken up at least once every hour to go to the bathroom again. I haven't been this sick in a long time.

Sunday afternoon I had started what turned out to be one of the longest books I've read in a LOOOOONG time! Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens and finished it into the wee hours of the morning while I was writhing in agony. Having the stomach flu feels worse to me since I won't let myself just puke and get it over with. If you've read some of my stuff you know about my Emetophobia.

Who's your favorite bad boy, either in movie or book form? Did you read Fever, Real or Thoughtless? What did you think of them?
