I Can See the Sun Again!

The sun is shining again. Okay, it’s not, actually, but I feel like it is. I’ve come out of a four-week bout of whooping cough (pertussis), and suffice to say that it got worse before it got better. The only thing remaining is a bit of a headache at night and in the morning, along with a light cold. I’ll take that any day!

I sent no Christmas cards or Christmas letters this year. I was too busy surviving, and I almost didn’t get out to buy gifts for the children. But Santa miraculously found the Wii they wanted, so I was covered.

I’m excited about the coming new year. Yes, it’s an author’s dream: a fresh, clean page to write on! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    I am glad that you are feeling better. I know how bad the Whooping Cough can be, my 22 month old grandson got it and it has been horrible. To watch him cough and not really be able to do anything is the pitts. I am one of your biggest fans. I have not read all of your books,but what I have read I sure do love. I have to tell you that I love your blog also. It sure can make a person laugh when they feel like there is nothing left funny in their lives. I also have a blog if you are interested in going to and giving me any comments on how to make it better. It is http://www.thelifeandtimesofmaggiebrooks1@blogspot.com. I hope you will enjoy it. Take care and have a good day. Maggie Brooks

    Glad you’re feeling better. You’d think pertussis wasn’t even a worry in this day and age, but it is. We had an outbreak not too long ago here in CO.
