End of Year Curse

I thought I'd get away with it this year, but I was wrong! Every year I have gotten sick either on the very last day of school (graduation), or a couple of days before. Three years ago I got bronchitis, that repeated two years ago. Last year I got a horrible sinus infection. This year I crossed my fingers, said a little prayer, and increased my intake of fruits and vitamin C in an effort to break the curse. NO SUCH LUCK. I wanted to come home last night and post my review of Mary Stewart's My Brother Michael, but the end of year curse has hit again, and I'm off to go crawl back into bed. Sad.

Until my ears stop ringing and my chest stops rattling, don't forget to check out my giveaway of Brandon Sanderson's novel Mistborn, posted on my "Memorial Day Giveaway" post. It closes on Sunday, and I'll be mailing it off before I leave for Hawaii. Until then, Mahalo! (Off to bed to honor the curse.)


  1. I'm so sorry to hear that you're under the weather!! Take care of yourself!!

  2. Bummahs about your being ill, but I gotta say, "Until then, thank you?"

    As an Islander, I had to ask. :)

  3. Hope you feel better. Hopefully, the curse will be gone next year!

  4. Yeah, people tend to miss me so much when I leave that they get sick. :) SUPRISE!
