Our daughter is all settled in and it seems fall has arrived with cooler temperatures. Poor little Hazel got her first tooth and with it her first ear infections, cough and running nose. Sophia got it as well and while she wasn’t happy it was fall break, so at least she didn’t fall behind in school. I fought it, but finally fell. I loath head colds. I am miserable, but at least I have the Fraterfest RAT to keep me busy while sipping hot tea and endlessly blowing my nose! Hoping you are well and that you had an amazing week! Elbow hugs! Stay Caffeinated.

Psst…it’s not too late to join the Fraterfest Readathon.

    Sorry to hear you all are fighting colds. Cold weather/changes of weather tend to bring on colds. I hope everyone gets better quickly.
    Meanwhile, enjoy your #FraterfestRat reading!

    It has been a tough week for the Caffeinated family! Head colds are awful and teething is no fun. That’s great that Sophia didn’t get behind in school but still it never seems fair when you’re sick on vacation! Have a great week and get to feeling better.

    i had a stomach bug for about a week. i didn’t feel sick but had bubble guts. lol feeling much better now. we got a new computer this week. since mr wonderful was let go due to covid, i let him use my computer whenever we are in front of the tv, so blogging has fallen behind for me. now, YAY, we each have our own laptop for use while watching tv. weather is great, but it got down in the 60s last night. today beautiful blue skies, so i am messing around with the pool and patio

    Oh, I’m sorry to hear about your cold — and Hazel’s and Sonia’s, too. I hope Clayton is doing better. The weather here has cooled back down to seasonal temperatures after a “false summer,” and I am looking forward to crisper days and fall colors. Your book haul this week reminds me that I need to get back to the Lady Sherlock series.

    So sorry to hear you and the little ones came down with colds! The cooler weather finally blew in yesterday, so it is pretty inevitable that I’ll get a cold soon. At least I have an excuse now to make lots of soup and drink all the coffee haha.

    Bet its a relief that your daughter is all moved in, but bummer you and the kiddoes got the colds. I’ve had one all week so let’s toast with our little cup of cough syrup. 🙂 Loving my Fraterfest reading. I got the new Charlotte Holmes and the last Aurora Cycle books, too.

    Have a good week, Kimberly!

  7. Lori Caswell

    I am so sorry illness is running rampant and hope you all feel better quickly. I thought I was coming down with a cold but the itchy eyes now tell me it is allergies to my son’s cat. They are moving to their new place soon and I am sure that my blowing my nose and watery eyes will disappear then.

  8. Lisa Mandina (Lisa Loves Literature)

    I always say next year I’m going to sign up for less review books so I can do things like Fraterfest, then I sign up for too many. Maybe 2022 I’ll do better? lol Sorry everyone got sick, hopefully you’re all on the mend and feeling better this week!

    Funny how we always get those head colds right when spring and autumn hits. But luckily you have all those great reads for Fraterfest RAT yes. I’m sure they keep you company (in more ways than one – evil laugh)

    Have a good week Kimberly!

  10. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Sorry to hear everyone got a bit of the sniffles. Seems like that happens to me whenever the weather changes from one extreme to the other. Hope everyone is doing better now!

    Nice new reads! I plan to start Kaufman & Kristoff’s new series once the third book lands at my door so I can binge it! I know from experience it’s better to do that with those two! Lol. Happy Reading!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Looks like there’s colds and misery going around everywhere! I hope you and the kids feel better soon and that Fraterfest continues to be a fun distraction. Thanks for hosting and have a lovely upcoming week 🙂

    Oh noes! {{{posivibes}}} that the crud goes away quickly.

    Oooh! I want Trailer Park Trickster. I read White Trash Warlock for a tour and enjoyed it.

    I hope this week goes better, Kim!

  13. SJ

    Oh no! I hope everyone feels better soon. It’s actually been unseasonable warm here I’m not going to knock it but I wouldn’t mind it cooling enough so I can get my sweaters out.

  14. Ailyn Koay

    omg how creepy is the cover for aurora’s end?
    Hope you guys are on the mend! Remember, chicken soup is proven by research to help cure the cold

  15. Louise Hallett

    Hope you are all feeling back to normal soon. There are some very nasty head colds doing the rounds in the UK, I’m off this week so expecting it to hit me any day now! Have a good week and happy reading.

  16. Emily

    Hope you all get well soon. We have been lucky for colds here. My partner is a teacher so we are constantly on edge! I love hot chocolate season and have started Christmas shopping so am feeling properly wintery!

  17. Lorna

    So sorry you all are under the weather right now. It’s cooler here tonight(morning)after the rain we had today. 51 right now. And I’m glad your daughter got settled. The only good thing about moving is getting rid of so much stuff especially if you move states as I did last time. Feel better!

  18. Harvee

    The weather has turned cold and wet, and so we have to watch out for the sniffles. More hot coffee, please. Take care.

  19. Greg

    Oh no- hope you all feel better soon. I love this time of year but the one thing I don’t like is when the temperature changes and getting sick. Hope you guys are well this week…
