Let's Play Catch-Up

Well, here I am. Kiri back again. And I've finally gotten my blog back under control after a certain pair of pesky royal twins took over a few weeks ago. I will admit, they kept those few days of my novella's promotion quite lively. And yes, I did enjoy reading over their posts. 

I'd also like to thank you all for the enthusiastic response I've received over The Rose and the Balloon. I could say so much on this, how much it all means to me, but I won't gush. I was so afraid to release the book to the world, so afraid of how people would receive it, but this has been nothing like what I expected. Thank you, thank you all for your support. 

The reason I was absent for so long was because my mother had an unexpected trip to the hospital. During the end of July, she was having intense pain in her abdomen, and then on August 2nd, the pain grew so much that she finally consented to go see a doctor. From there, she went immediately to the hospital and had an emergency surgery on her appendix. Praise the Lord, it all went well, but she was in the hospital for a week after the surgery. I am very grateful for the care she received, but it was interesting living a week without Momma at home. And busy for my sisters and I, keeping on top of everything. But we managed all right. 

And now, I am offering a farewell of sorts, since I leave next week to return to school. I'm very excited to start my third year as a Creative Writing major! As always, I don't know how much time I'll have to be on blogger, but I'll do my best to pop on from time to time. 

God bless!


  1. I am SO sorry to hear about your mom!!! Thank God she's all right. One of my closest friends had the same thing happen to her not too long ago, and had to have surgery right away on her appendix, so I know how scary that is. I'm so grateful to God for taking care of you guys! *HUGS*

    I'm gonna miss my Kiri once you go back to college! D: It's been wonderful having you in the blogsphere for a time again. But Creative Writing major! :D :D :D I'm so excited for you!!! I hope your 3rd year is the best yet!

  2. Ah yes, I know the feeling of unexpectedly being absent after having a family member end up in the hospital. I'm glad your mom is doing well and hope she continues recovering. I'm sadly behind in reading your blog, but hope to catch up before too long.
    Have fun at college, and yes, please do update us when you get the chance!
