Dorothy was right. There is no place like home. (There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home.) We had a fantastic time in Dublin, and Worldcon was awesome, but it is SO GOOD to be home. We missed the cats SO MUCH, and the pet cam is no substitute for cuddling them. Also jet lag is a complete bitch. I’ve seen the sun come up more times this week than I have in years because my body clock just isn’t adjusting back to my usual night owl schedule. And it’s driving Lucifer a bit spare because I’m just not assuming the position he wants me in for nearly as long as he requires for his nightly snuggle. He has to be in the feline superior position and my going to sleep right away is just not working for him.
This is a bit of a catch-up Sunday Post, as I’ll finally be announcing – and notifying – the winners of all the giveaways that ended while we were gone. But speaking of giveaways ending, the Back to School Giveaway Hop rather appropriately ends this week, as everyone seems to have gone back to school by now!
And I’d like to give a very big shout out to Amy Daltry, who provided so many wonderful guest reviews while I was away. Thanks a bunch Amy!
