I Thought It Was Allergies!

I have good news, good news, and bad news.

The good news? Sweet Dreams is back with Angie, the first round of edits done! Yay!

The good news? The character chat seemed to be a real hit. I'm hoping that the other authors had as good a time as I did, and it seemed like the readers had a good time, too.

The bad news? I did the character chat with a stuffed nose, fever, body aches, etc., thinking I was having an allergy attack.

Now, before I get yelled at ("That's a head cold, dummy!") let it be known that a LOT of my allergy attacks will cause me to have a fever. A nurse tried to explain to me once why that happens, but right now I can't remember the explanation. She said if the allergy meds make me feel better, then it's an allergy attack. If they don't, it's a cold.

Guess what? It's a cold.

Now the youngest is starting to sniffle and get "snoodely". The oldest has been sick for about three days (no fever, so, again, I though allergy attack since the pollen in our area has been anywhere from High to "Why is that cloud yellow, Mama?" "It's not a cloud. It's pollen, sweetie.") Now I'm thinking it was a cold all along. Luckily, he's getting better. Not so luckily, I'm not.

So I may be a bit out of touch for a day or two while I kick this out of my system. Don't worry, I'll do my best to answer e-mails, but my elves are on hold until I feel better. I actually did try to write today, but... I hit the delete key. A LOT.

Juice and some rest (as much as my kids will let me have, at least), and plenty of cold medicine, and I should be fine in a few days.

In the meantime, Tuesday is release day over at Samhain, so go check out the new books, maybe look at some of the older releases, and have a good couple of days!
