Monday's Muse

Monday, December 17

I'm seriously starting to stress about the holidays. It started Sunday when I was thinking about all of the things that I should try to get done this week before my brother and his family come to visit for the holidays.  I can't wait to see them.  They were here in July but that seems like ages ago.  Sometime Skype and talking on the phone just doesn't cut it, ya know.  Those little hugs just aren't the same over the internet :(

Being with family that you love is an important part of the holidays for me.  The most important part actually.  Little Love asked me on the way home from school last week what I wanted for Christmas and I told her a year full of hugs and kisses whenever I want one :)  Of course I asked her for this because she's a miser with them and holds them as ransom because she know I love them so much.   Yes, she's a handful and I love her dearly.  She's six so I know it'll only get worse as she gets older so I'm trying to squeeze out all that I can now.

Which also made me incredibly sad when I came home on Friday and found out what had happened in Conneticut.  My heart hurts when I think what those families are going through, especially since it's so close to the holidays.  If they are anything like me they've been planning and buying gifts getting just as excited about Christmas because they can't wait to see their faces on Christmas morning to see what Santa brought them.  I would hazard a guess that most of those children still believed in Santa.  It makes me want to cry when I imagine if I were in the same situation.  But I believe hugs can help, it won't make the hurt go away, but it will help.  Hugs always make me feel better, even if it is just in consolation.  My heart goes out to anyone who has lost a loved one this year and will struggle with celebrating the holidays without them.  ((Hugs)).

And on a happier note, I believe if our Muse asked for hugs and kisses all the year through I would be more than happy to gift him with that, LOL.

p.s. I am reading The Duchess War by Courtney Milan...and sigh I so so loving it. I hate for it to end. The hero, LOVE!  The heroine, also LOVE!  It is very possible (more like probable but I can't say that for certain since I'm still reading it) that you will see it on my Favorites of 2012 list :)

This week at Seductive Musings:
  • Tuesday:  Author Delilah Marvelle will be my guest to celebrate the release of her new HQN historical romance, Forever a Lord.  Can't wait for this one!
  • Wednesday:  Author J. Kenner, aka J.K. Beck, will be my guest to share her new book Release Me.
  • Thursday & Friday:  I'm on some tight design deadlines (meaning I'm behind) so I may or may not post reviews on these days.  If I don't then you won't here from me again on the blog until the new year.  I'll be taking a few days off the computer to spend it with my family during the week of Christmas.

Finally, I'd like to congratulate all of the authors with new releases this week, especially Musings authors Courtney Milan, Tina Donahue, Sophie Barnes, Isobel Carr, Delilah Marvelle, Amanda Scott, & Katie Lane!  Congrats!!!

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
