We interrupt this blog for stress.

Yep, it’s too much right now. Without going into a litany of reasons why, something has to give. I have too much on my plate, and with an invalid husband (my fifty year old toddler) I am at a point where if something doesn’t give I’m going to go medieval on someone or something. I came to this realization this morning when I pounced on someone I love very much and hurt her feelings. No more of that!

So, I’m taking a big deep breath and saying no to a few things for now. And regular blog posts are one of those things. Knowing me I won’t be able to stay away from y’all for long, so check back. I will however be announcing this Friday afternoon the winner of Jasmine Haynes book OPEN INVITATION, which by the way I started the other night. 🙂 It’s vera sexy. So to win all you have to do is comment here or on any of the blog posts this week.

And for those of you who came around too late yesterday to chat with Hilary, you missed all the fun. If you read the comments and her responses you can understand why I stalked her for two years until she finally cried uncle and bought me.

Okay, so I really have to go, for a little while and get these boxes off to New York and my family back east.

Ciao for now.

    Very understandable..This time of year is hard enough without the extras. Read ya when you come back.

  2. Kristi

    Stressed? Over the holidays? And with all of your other commitments? Nooooo. 🙂

    Take care, Karin..and we’ll be stalking *you* til your return!

    Popping my head in. Thnx, Lee and Kristi. If I survive the next 5 days, I will survive the year.

    Take care of yourself, Karin.

    All I want for Christmas is… an OPEN INVITATION!!! (Might as well be honest. Pardon me while I throw in a few shuffling steps of the Egyptian Sand Dance to get your attention :o)

    Glad to see you doing what’s necessary for your own sanity, Karin. So many of us don’t, until we’re already off the deep end. May the rest of us follow your example, because in truth, that is the BEST way to take care of our families–by being good to ourselves first. Cheers, everyone–Lee, Kristi, raine, one and all. Happy Holidays!

    Karin, hope you find some Zen time in the hecticness(probably not a word LOL) of the holidays. I’m sure you’ll be back blogging soon as things calm down.

  7. Tracey

    Karin – thank you for your great blogs. I’m sorry I missed Hilary Sares, I really wanted to be there for that. Anyway – you take care of yourself and your otther commitments, we’ll be here.

    Finally got through on dial-up Karin, to say, I’m sure your friend, being loving and understanding (because that’s how best friends are) totally understand your high stress level and has already forgotten the incident by now ;).

    Have a great Holiday!!!

    Karin, I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing with my personal blog until the new year. And I don’t have an invalid husband. 😀 Take it easy and enjoy the holidays.

    it’s friday and i am stil alive! i had the bunko babes over last night (i counted the empty wine bottles, almost a dozen!), a signing tonight, our party tomorrow night. i’m living for sunday morning.
    the good thing is, i have two bartenders working the party and they will also do clean up, so i’m going to enjoy the evening.

  11. Amie

  12. Rebecca

    Karen, I hope things settle down and start looking up for you soon!
