I’m baaaaack!!!

Don’t worry, I didn’t fall off the face of the planet. Actually, I was in Belgium, visiting my husband’s family for the holidays. I can’t really update from there because my wireless won’t work and my MIL has a French keyboard that makes it impossible for me to communicate in English. My text ends up with all these funny symbols in it, I can’t touch type, and I can never find the question mark. The French DO use question marks, it’s just I can never find it on the keyboard.

So, we were there for what felt like forever and then we came home where my daughter and I promptly got sick (it was probably the germ festival that is a Boeing 747). We’ve been fighting the sickies all week long. I’m just now starting to feel human enough to update my blogs and LJ and stuff. Thank you antibiotics.

How was your holiday season? Mine was good. Somehow I managed to eat like a pig and still lose three pounds. *frown* Still not sure how that happened, but I’ll take it. Frankly, I think the food in Europe is magical. Eat all the bread and cheese you want and drop the poundage! Let’s all move.

Of course, since I have strep, it was impossible for me to eat or drink anything for the last two days. Today my throat still hurts, but now I can swallow without it throwing me into paroxysms of pain. So I have some thick chicken noodle soup and some home baked chocolate chip cookies to keep me happy. Mmmm cookies.

On the writing front, I need to get back to it. Now the deadlines are really looming. And OMG! Witch Blood releases really soon! Only two more months now.

Anyway, I BE BACK and blogging again.

  1. Welcome back. Both my boys ended up with strep over the holiday, so I feel your pain. Hope you continue to feel better every day.

  2. Thanks, Cathy. I’m glad to be home.

  3. Hope you’re feeling better! I’m back too, slowly making the rounds to see how people are.
