At 3 AM this morning I was taken by ambulance to the ER again, mortified, but unable to get a good breath. Different hospital - due to the fact of where town boundaries lie, etc , but didn't want sainted husband hauling the boys at that hour. I couldn't drive. Four hours later I was home, breathing better. I am having an asthma attack - one that lasts for five days apparently, but still one that needed control. I've never had such a thing before. I'm actually feeling better knowing all this. Plus it was a beautiful day, two families want to see the house, and my in-laws then my parents came to keep the boys company while I rested today. It didn't hurt that my folks brought chocolate chip muffins and lasagna. Really, those two things cure many ills...
I will have to pass on Printer's Row for tomorrow, but will be there for my panel Sunday, even if I am not talking much. Hopefully many copies of Missing will still be snapped up!

Here's yet another from the Practically Cookless Cookbook. I don't get this one at all, and can't even tell if it would be good. Who invented this one and how? (and why?)
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
12 large marshmallows, halved
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup chopped almonds
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 13x9x2 inch pan.
Prepare cake batter according to package directions; pour into pan.
Bake 35 - 40 minutes.
Arrange marshmallows over hot cake.
Combine butter and sugar. Spoon over marshmallows, covering completely. Sprinkle with nuts.
Run under broiler, 4 inches from heat, until marshmallows are melted. Serve warm.
I think it needs chocolate... Really, I don't like to see marshmallows wasted on anything other than s'mores.
I almost finished two books in the ER this morning. Lisa Wingate's Talk of the Town was cute, part of her series. She's a good, lightly Christian women's fiction writer with plenty of humor and romance. The second is Patterns in the Sand, a Seaside Knitters Mystery. I'm not done with that, but it makes me desperately want to go to the beach. At this point, though, I'd settle for some drama free days around here!
Have a good weekend.
