Hello everyone

I just wanted to give a general update and blanket apology to readers, authors, tour hosts. I have had a trying couple weeks. First, I was overwhelmed with my finals since, procrastinator that I am, I left it until the very last-minute, and then had to pull a few all-nighters to be able to complete everything on time.

As a result, my posting schedule has suffered and I missed a couple of postings. For that, I’m really sorry. I hate to have to back out on anything and I did let the Tour Hosts know why but I still felt bad about it.

Secondly, right after handing in my assignments for finals, thinking I was free to get back to blogging and reading etc, I fell sick with what I thought was the flu. I have all the symptoms. Turns out I have the Chicken Pox. My 3-year-old daughter just recovered from it and just when I thought I had escaped unscathed, it got me. Now, if it was only the itching, I could deal with that, annoying though it may be. But, I have the flu-like symptoms too which prevents me from being able to do much of anything. This post alone has taken me almost a day to complete because my eyes hurt so much, I can’t stand to be in front of the computer.

With all this going on, I’m behind on a lot of reviews. Please bear with me, those of you who were so kind to send me Review copies solicited or unsolicited. I will get to them as soon as I possibly can.

My sincerest apologies to all affected!
