I skipped last week’s recap post because I spent the day that I normally work on my blog post, throwing my guts up. My body rejected the new prescription that my doctor put me on and it laid me out flat. I could feel the tension in my body when I tried going to bed on Sunday night but I didn’t realize what it was until about 4:00 AM. So I didn’t sleep a wink that night, threw up everything that I ate and waited until the doctor’s office opened so that I could immediately call my doctor and fill him in on what was happening. I’m really grateful to him too because when I called, he was with patients but he didn’t leave me waiting very long. He called me as soon as he could and we talked at length about what was happening, what I was feeling and then he came up with a new plan of attack. He thought that we probably started the new medication too aggressively and lowered my dosage to let my body get used to it and it’s been a week since then and the medicine is working as it’s supposed to and I’m not sick anymore so yay!
Basketball is wrapping up right now and with the end of the season near, we’re finding out which girls have made the Conference First and Second All Star Teams and I’m proud of my girls Brenna and Kenna for making both teams. Brenna had the highest 3pt shooting percentage in our conference and Makenna lead the conference in assists and assists from turnovers in transition. All great things!
Meghan missed most of her season due to injuries so we haven’t heard if she made any teams from her conference though both her and Makenna got official invitations to play on the American Samoan National Team for the South Pacific Games. So they’ll be traveling from island to island playing basketball for Samoa. Our family is extremely proud of them both on that, especially my Dad.
And last but not least, Brenna’s birthday was yesterday and for her 20th birthday, her Uncle Pete and Aunty Tiff got her a freaking car. We were all surprised and Brenna ugly cried. It was awesome.
Now, onto the books…

Don’t hate the player…
Gwen Scott wants to love her job with the Charleston Thrashers, the MLB team she’s worshiped since she was a kid, but she can’t. Hateful colleagues and mind-numbing work make her days unbearable—until her head for baseball gets her exclusive access to the Thrashers’ clubhouse and she comes face-to-face with Tyler Ashe, the team’s sexy shortstop and baseball’s most ineligible bachelor.
Ty has sworn off relationships in order to focus on his all-star career, but with his best friend gone, his team struggling, and the press blaming him for every loss, the most recognizable man in the majors is in a slump. Until he starts spending his time off the field with a stern blonde who recites baseball stats for kicks and sees through his arrogant façade.
As the Thrashers’ season gets into full swing and Gwen adjusts to her new job, their fun banter and friendly teasing turns into stolen kisses and countless steamy nights. The team’s strict policy against player-staff relationships throws a curve ball into the mix, but they can’t hide from their feelings any more than the most famous man in baseball can hide from the spotlight…
I made some progress on my review pile for this month and that makes me happy. I started this book this morning and I’m looking forward to diving into it more on my lunch hour because, baseball and romance? Yes, please!

I love that tweet, it made my laugh out loud at my desk!
Yeah, I’m still laughing at that one. How true is that?
My mama told me that all the time!
Your mama is a wise woman! 🙂
Great post. I hope you get to feeling better, so sorry to hear that last week was so rough for you. And some great books you grabbed up. I hope to pick up Lorraine Heath’s novel pretty soon so I am excited for that one.
Thanks Renee. I’m feeling SO much better!
Ugh, how miserable to be sick from meds. Hope the lower dosage has fixed that. I seriously loved The Kiss Quotient. One of those rare books that actually lives up to the crazy hype. I am howling over “the L is silent” thing. OMG, priceless! 🙂
Yes, I was super miserable. I’ve never gotten sick that way before and it was so bad that I scared my family. I’m super glad that my doctor was on hand and able to help me immediately.
I had a good laugh at that “L is silent” thing too.
