I should say, a mostly reading, writing, blogging, revising, and critiquing weekend with a little football, exercise, meal prep, pantry organization, and shopping thrown into the mix.
Yesterday I went to buy a pair of Nikes. That's all I needed. One pair of comfy gray Nike running shoes with a bright pink Swoosh in which I will never run. However, in addition to those shoes, I bought a pair of comfy Keds in brownish suede with a zip up top and three long-sleeved Pima cotton shirts in fall colors.
My excuse? They were all on sale.
I also had to go to the drugstore to pick up a prescription, saw the sign up for flu shots, and got mine on the spot. Just so you know, it only took a few minutes and my arm is not sore.
The recommendation is for everyone to get the flu vaccine this year, no matter your age, and to get the shot as soon as possible. The goal, of course, is to avoid the rush and confusion that occurred last year when H1N1 made an unexpected appearance in North America. This year, the H1N1 and regular flu vaccines come in the same shot.
I'd love to tie all this rambling nonsense back to writing in the logical way some excellent bloggers do it, but I can't. Well, except the shirts and shoes will be nice for the Colorado Gold writers' conference next weekend. And since I'm riding the bus down to Denver and then mixing with lots more people at the conference, and since there are quite a few bad colds with flu-like symptoms going around, getting the flu shot yesterday was probably a smart move.
How did I do?
Have a wonderful weekend.
