I'm pretty sure my kindergartner is trying to kill me. If you've ever had a kid in school you know what I mean when I say they bring home everything. Every cold, every flu, every bacterial infection, every virus. If you're lucky you don't get the pink eye, impetigo, and head lice. We've pretty much spent the entire month of November passing colds and crud from person to person. Knock on wood because only the Punk got the puke-thing... but twice.
This weekend I am all about dragging the holiday decoration boxes out so I can decorate. Y'all know Christmas isn't usually my holiday but I'm kinda feelin' it this year. I guess maybe some of the awful shit going on in the world just makes me want to bury myself in traditions and things that are good in life. Like special dinners and having pretty decorations out, being reminded of how fortunate I am and sharing that fortune with others, date nights and shopping dates. I think this has been just a hard year in general and therefore I need celebration of how much I've overcome and rebuilt. What holiday tradition are you looking forward to this year?
This weekend I'm working on Atrophy by Jess Anastasi. Atrophy is very Firefly-ish so I think a lot of people who don't tend to read SFR will love it. It comes out on December 7th and I'm hoping to do something fun to celebrate so be on the lookout. I'm also reading The Perfect Weapon by Delilah S. Dawson because a) it's Delilah-freaking-S. Dawson who is amazeballs and b) it's a Star Wars short story and I am getting so anxious for The Force Awakens it's not even funny. So yeah, a very scifi weekend for me. lol
Now, before I bore you any further... how are all of you? Good I hope. It's always so quiet here and I know that's because I don't have time to drop in every day anymore. I hope you have a safe and happy Thanksgiving if you're stateside and if not may your weekend be just as safe and happy. Leave me a comment telling me what you're reading this weekend if you have a minute, I'm really curious what everyone has in the works. -- Rhi
