Confessions of a Shopaholic

Today I stayed home from work because upon waking up, I had a migraine and my eyes were swollen shut! What a way to start off a Monday. So I got up and took some medication, laid back down and hoped that I felt better. 30 minutes later, I wasn't feeling any better. I called into work and went back to bed. I woke up around 10 and am feeling better but feel very very sore and there is no way I can get a pair of contacts in today!

I finished the book, Confessions of a Shopaholic this morning. Has anyone read this? I've been told by several people that this was a cute, fun read. Personally, I did not like it. I thought it silly and wanted to slap the heroine across the head several times. I don't believe that I will be reading any further in this series. I may go to see the movie though.

My next book to read is A Lion Among Men by Gregory Maguire. This is book 3 in the Wicked Series. It's about the Cowardly Lion of Wizard of Oz. I enjoyed the first book, Wicked, about the Wicked Witch of the East. It was a very interesting point of view. The second book, Son of the Witch, was not as good as the first. I'm hoping that this 3rd one goes back to the original storytelling of Wicked. There are rumors that with the success of this series that Maguire will be doing the Tin Man and Scarecrow's stories.

Now I am going to spend a relaxing afternoon stitching. I hope to get some progress on a few projects. Hopefully by this evening my head will no longer feel like a sledge hammer hit it!

I started A Lion Among Men the other day. I started wondering if perhaps I needed to reread Wicked and Son of a Witch.

Migraines are the worst! Glad you're feeling better.
