Taking the Day Off

Hey y’all! Hope you are having a great Tuesday.

I have to play nurse to a sick kiddo today and tomorrow. Lock has a touch of pneumonia, but we caught it early and he isn’t really feeling all that bad. He’s had a shot, some antibiotics and some cough medicine, and he’s wrapped up in a blanket on the couch watching the Ironman trilogy. My boys are all big Marvel fans. HUGE fans. I swear, I know more about Deadpool than I ever wanted to know about any character in my life. In fact, they made me watch some animated show involving Deadpool and Spiderman, and, I swear to all things holy, my brain was literally hurting afterwards. They thought that was funny. Personally, I’m a Superman girl, and Christopher Reeves will always be Superman, hands down. I saw it at the drive-in when it first came out (oh god, I think I just aged myself there), and that was my superhero. He still is. But I like the Marvel series as well. They are fun to watch, and some of the lines are just hysterical. So, with one kid ill, I’m pretty sure he’s going to have a Marvel-fest in the next 24 hours.

Because he’s sick, I’ll be playing nurse. This means there may not be a post tomorrow, though I am going to try and at least put something up, even if it’s just a video I like. Just don’t be too surprised if I’m not around. Anyway, hope everyone is great, and if not, I hope things get better. Love to all!

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her.
