Ten on Tuesday

Things have been pretty quiet around here until this past week. My January off of shooting has come and gone and my first official shoot of 2012 is later this week. Soon there will be more than the new weekly Ten on Tuesday posts for you to enjoy. Promise!

Also, it was bound to happen and it looks like this is the first week. That is, I don’t have the time or energy to think of ten things and I don’t have a post already in the reserves which mean today’s Ten on Tuesday will be a link up to another blogger’s top 10. My youngest daughter Teagan has been home sick for a week now complaining of a headache. She’s had a low grade fever (never higher than 99.5 or so) and the headache and a bit of a tummy ache but other than that no complaints. Although, her head pain often intensifies enough to where she’s crying and just wants it to go away. I took her to the doctor yesterday and they decided she had a virus but said to bring her back if she didn’t improve. Today she woke up with horrible neck pain. I thought maybe she slept wrong but of course, after some googling her symptoms I diagnosed her with meningitis which isn’t a good thing. I don’t really think that’s what she has but I’ve been pretty preoccupied today keeping an overly cautious eye on her. Her temperature is still relatively normal and she has no other symptoms other than the headache and neck pain. So hopefully it will work itself out and she’ll get better. Soon!

Until then, I’ll be a little more scarce then normal. So, if you don’t already know her this week’s Ten on Tuesday is brought to you by Vicki Courtney. (I guess I should probably let her know she’s contributed to my blog today!) Vicki is one of my favorite Christian authors. I think the first book of her’s that I read was 5 Conversations You Must Have With Your Daughter and there is now one for Son’s that I need to get and read. I started following Vicki on Twitter awhile back and not only is she a great author, she’s also pretty stinkin’ funny. And if you know me, then you know I appreciate funny. Yesterday Vicki tweeted a link to an old post of her’s that I clicked on and about died laughing after reading it. It’s from November of 99 but is still just as funny today. Do yourself a favor and go read Top 10 Facebook No-No’s For Parents. It’s hilarious.

Also, I’m pretty sure I’ve been guilty of 1 or 2 (or 10) of the items on the list. Sorry kids! lol
