My throat is on fire again, and I just got my period so naturally I feel like crap. My son is still under the weather, and my husband felt shitty yesterday and said he fell asleep at the wheel at work today. Not enough sleep, he said, except we got home at 8 after Christmas with my mom's family and we just stayed up doing each other's presents and then goofing around on the computer. It's totally in his power to go to bed at 8:00 every night but he doesn't want to. Can't say I blame him.
I fell asleep on the couch today and my son kept talking to me. I heard him say "I love you" and I opened my eyes and he said, "Sorry, I didn't mean to wake you up. I was hoping you'd hear it in your dreams." Aww.
I got some great presents for Christmas. I know I have a LJ friend who's a big Amanda Palmer/Neil Gaiman fan but I can't remember who it is. I got their "Night out with" CD. I like Gaiman, in that I like his DW episodes a lot and I liked Neverwhere, which I read in college because the guy I was dating was a huge Gaiman fan. I liked the Sandman comics that I read back then, and I've read a couple of his children's and YA books which I enjoy, and I like the speeches he makes when he's just talking about inspiration and just being you and putting yourself out there, but I am not really digging his adult books anymore. I don't know why, I feel like I don't have the capacity to sit down with it anymore, which is sad. But I hope I enjoy the CD.
