‘Tis the season…

for getting sick!

I think I’ve been sick this time of year most of my life. Why it came as a big surprise to me when I came down with the chest cold from Mordor last weekend, I do not know. I can remember as a teenager I would have to lip-sink on the caroling trips because I’d always lost my voice by then.  I just surfaced today and thought I’d pop in to say I haven’t dropped into the internet either. In fact, I’ve got some great posts planned and one special par-tay.

for great prizes!

I’ve been invited to participate in the SFR Holiday Blitz. Starting Dec 20th some of the SFR friendly blogs are teaming up with some great SFR authors to give away over 50 SFR books. Can I get a WOOT!? This amazing event is organized by The Galaxy Express and I’m psyched to be a part of it.

for great gifts!

And to wrap things up, I have to share that I got a very special gift today. My SIS and BIL had a star registered for me. They wisely skipped naming it after me and instead gave it a special name from stories our father told us years ago. The Rarfaroose Star. Very cool!

  1. I love it, your very own star and it is connected to memories shared with your Dad!
    Hope you are feeling much better Charlie..
    Sickness this time of year yes, in our house though it starts around Halloween when the first cool fronts start blowing through and make my husband’s allergies exacerbate his asthma.. This month my Mom, myself and my Husband have all been rotating being sick every other week so will be very happy when winter is over!

    • Thanks for the well wishes. Yes, the star registry was really special and so perfect.
      Allergies can be so awful and asthma can be plain scary. Hope you and your family fend off the sick-monster and stay healthy the rest of the winter. Sending you cyber-soup!

  2. That is so cool that they ‘gave’ you a star.

    Sorry to hear that you’ve been sick. I was thinking about you the other day too, wondering why it’s been so quiet here.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    • Thanks, Maria! You know I’m sick when I can’t even read. My TBR pile doesn’t understand why I was home from work but didn’t give it any attention. LOL! I’m sooo behind on email and blog reading and it is back to work tomorrow. I’m sure I’ll get caught up soon. Nothing like a challenge!

  3. I’ll be participating in the Holiday Blitz too. It’s a lot of fun.

    Your own star! How cool is that! And I love the name you chose.

    I’m sure your TBR pile will be happily waiting for you. Feel better soon!

  4. No! Don’t be sick! We need more of your story for critique group! But YAY for the blitz and for the star. It’s always nice when someone gives you the perfect gift – even if you didn’t know what it was!

  5. I’ve been battling some illness this season too, definitely not the time of year to be sick! I hope you get well soon (make a wish on The Rarfaroose Star?). 🙂

    I’m so looking forward to the SFR Holiday Blitz, we are gonna give away some AWESOME prizes! Hope everyone is as psyched for this event as we are! 😀
