some notes

.
If you read any book blogs, I'm sure you've noticed that Book Blogger Appreciation Week is going on right now, organized by My Friend Amy, and tons of people have gotten involved, lots of giveaways and cool stuff going on. I did want to do something here too, but find that I just can't get into it. First, because a very nasty headcold is running through my household, and right now when my head isn't hurting, I just want to be asleep. Which is difficult with a three-year-old who doesn't quite understand that mommy isn't feeling well. So I don't have the concentration for much beyond my normal routine. Second, I have just been reading about the devestation in Texas from Hurricane Ike, and it makes my heart sick. If you go to this link on Daily Kos, especially read through the comments. I followed a few more links out, including those that went to photos, but at some point just could not handle knowing any more.

Between these two things, my heart is just not in celebration mood right now. I will be following along what others are doing, and posting when I finish a current book, but that's about it for the time being.

I am so sorry that you are ill, Jeane! I do hope you are feeling better soon and that you are able to get some rest. I imagine it isn't easy with a three year old. Take care of yourself!

Hope you feel well soon, Jeane. I gave you an award today.

Hope you feel better soon!! Thanks for passing on the link. I know a 9 month pregnant lady down there and getting news is quite difficult. I now know why. She is okay, so far. I never knew it was that bad!!!!

Feel better soon... both body and heart! :)

Jeane, I'm late seeing this, and I hope you're better now. Here's a cup of virtual ginseng tea.

Thanks, everyone. I'm feeling much better now, though still dismayed at how little new attention the situation in Texas is getting.
