We are not well.  

Between the beginning of September and the end of October I had three distinct colds. Since the beginning of November I have had a continuous cold, or colds in such rapid succession as to make no nevermind in the difference. So has Young Indiana. Ted had some kind of throat infection that got cleared up just in time for him to start catching colds, too, so we’ve been consistently unwell in this house for weeks to months, depending on how you wish to count it.

Today Young Indiana and I went Christmas shopping, which went approximately as well as you might imagine under the circumstances. We’re both now totally exhausted and I’m pretty much trying to figure out how to accomplish dinner without doing…anything. Ideally even without talking, since my voice is pretty unreliable just now.

OTOH, the Kickstarter keeps tripping along! This morning it reached 350 backers, causing Young Indiana to say, “Three five zero! Woo hoo! Nice job! You did it! You finished that book!”

*dorky grin* ♥ :)

#laughs. I just got a message from Kickstarter with the subject line of “352!”: “I know what you’re thinking. Three-hundred and fifty-two is a weird number to celebrate… but that’s a LOT of people that believe in your idea.

I think that’s kinda cool. :)

LOL--I love that line. Don't love the sick, though! Are you eating lots of garlic? What about echinacea tincture?

Stay well, and go for it!

Oh, and guess what--today is book release day for Wickedly Wonderful! Now you have another one to wish you'd blurbed :-)

I would seriously consider going to the doctor at this point. You may well have an underlying infection or be anaemic, making you more vulnerable to all this.
And yay backers!

The underlying infection is preschool, I'm afraid. :)

353 backers now, and you made your 10K Euro goal :D

perhaps there is something in the house helping make you sick (other than preschool and its pool of plague ridden vermin that is) or an allergy.

so when you get to 369 backers, are you going to sing the silly little rhyme that goes with it?

Three Six Nine, the goose drank wine, the monkey chewed tobacco on the street car line?

Ha, I put in my mite in time to get you over 300, though obviously you didn't strictly need it.

I am in no way joking when I say every single signal boost helps! There's no way at all to see where if someone hadn't said or done something, it all might have fallen down, so I assume everybody is my Personal Hero for shouting out! ♥!

Oh, I know the signal boost was helpful. 8-)

I meant that I had managed to become a backer. Of course you wouldn't necessarily know my legal name.

OH! Oh, Pamela, thank you SO MUCH! How incredibly good of you! Waugh, I'm overwhelmed by everyone's kindness!

(And now I'm gleefully looking through the backers trying to figure out which might be you, Legally Speaking. I have about three guesses, none of which matter at all, I'm just amused by me. :))

*hugs and hugs so much*!

You are very welcome, and hugs to you too! It's not really a secret; it's on the copyright page of any of my novels. It's the same first name, hyphenated last name. 8-)

kitmizkit on December 4th, 2014 10:05 pm (UTC)
oh! I do know that name, then. I just didn't scroll far enough through the list to find it. I was imagining something totally different. :)

On the cold/illness front when everyone is feeling better throw out all of your toothbrushes and get new ones. Sometimes you can reinfect yourself without thinking about it.
