I’m sorry for leaving you all hanging; normally, if there’s something going on, I try to be as informative as possible with you all. However, this time, it just wasn’t all that possible. A couple of days ago, I ended a two-day (well, almost three) stay in the hospital. Part of it was a poor reaction to a pneumonia vaccination. Another part was getting a cold from my niece. But the biggest part was my already-compromised immune system. In any case, I got really, really sick and, for a while there. Even when they sent me home, my fever was yo-yo-ing between normal and heightened (still is, albeit with less frequent highs). Needless to say, the lack of sleep (or good sleep) combined with the general malaise of being sick and having a fever made work all but impossible.
So, I guess that’s a long way of saying that I’ve been sick for the past little while, but I’m on the upswing. I know I’ll be weak for a few more days yet, but I hope to at least have the energy to sit at my desk and work. As a result of the inactivity, my schedule is going to be adjusted, though, and the latest caption story won’t be coming out until (at the earliest) tomorrow or (at the latest) on Christmas Eve. It really just depends on when my energy runs out each day. Also, I’m probably going to be pushing the latest book’s release back to New Year’s Eve (though, again, that depends on how quickly I get the caption story done).
That said, I do plan on doing something special next month by releasing a new, unscheduled Girl-a-Matic Guide (probably between 1-10 and 1-20) as a bit of an apology for the delays. I hope that makes all this a bit less bitter for you all.
