Deja Vu Blogfest and Merry Christmas.

D.L. HAMMONS


I posted this in November of 2009! Imagine. I was discumboobled even then. Maybe it should have been discombobulated? At least this year I'm aware that the word I used originally isn't a word anyone recognizes. It must have been a wild 2009!


So here's my Deja Vu Post.

Discumboobled





Is that how you spell it? 


Tonight is another book signing APPEARANCE and I'm still putting together what I want to say. Then there's company arriving, my mom who needs some TLC, the cat with a hairball issue, and a leaky toilet. I haven't blogged in days. I'm wearing my baseball hat all day because I can't use Halloween as an excuse for my hair anymore. My Tweets have turned to Chirps and when I looked at the garden from my window one of my patio chairs is floating in the fish pond.

Anybody have a system that keeps writing, family, pets, house, and personal hygiene needs under control? If so, please send ASAP!

In the meantime, wish me luck with tonight.


*****

So that was my 2009 post. Deja Vu anyone? Hope you'll go to the others in this retrospective week and say hi. Here's the link to D.L. HAMMONS's blog again. Their posts will go up on Friday 19 Dec. 



As most of you know, my new Young Adult book is out. Thanks to all who've offered to spread the word. I'll be in touch, but here's another way you can support me. And it's simple. Thanks for that!


So much for Deja Vu! 

 Back to 2014 and the Christmas Present. May you and those you love be well and share beautiful time together. 
See you all in 2015.

  2. "I'm wearing my baseball hat all day because I can't use Halloween as an excuse for my hair anymore."

    LOL!!! The only way to balance all that is to become a super villain and have your own minions to help. :) Thank you for re-sharing this. Merry Christmas!!

  5. HI, Lee!

    Merry Christmas!

    Too funny.... We've all had days, weeks, and even months like that. I'm still not able to balance all of it and I have no pets or kids! How do you moms and dads do it?!!!!!!

    As DL says, you must all have evil minions.... LOL.

    CONGRATS on your book! I am so THRILLED FOR YOU!!!!!!! I'll send out a tweet for you now!

    ALL THE BEST!

    1. I only appreciated my parents after I was one. But then we all fill our lives with so much these days. And then, of course, there's this writing business.

      Have a wonderful holiday.

  6. Oh Lee...how you always make my day with your posts. This Deja Vu post was one worth sharing again. I could feel the familiarity of this kind of situation myself, the whole "doing way too much at one time and everything seeming already hell in a hand baskey" kind of thing.

    I wish I could provide a great response but since I'm in such a state of busy-mess-ness *cue shifty eyes looking everywhere and nowhere at the same time*, I'll have to commisserate in the discomboobled state of being.

    May you and yours have a wonderfully blessed Christmas and I'll see you in the new year.

    1. Thanks so much for being here and for always commenting with such great words.

      See you in 2015. In the meantime, I return your wishes to you and yours.

  7. That's too funny! Well, clearly you must have been de-Discumboobled at least a little bit, because you managed to make it to 2014 and a release of "Sudden Secrets!"

    ...or should that be "Recumboobled?" since it eliminates the double negatives of de-" and "dis-"?

    At any rate, congratulations on the book release! And Happy Deja Vu!

    And have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

    1. Thanks, Chris. Great to find your comment at this busy time of year.

      I'm returning your holiday wishes. Hope to see you in 2015.

  8. Love the deja vu - perfect! For me that was the entire year, although in a different sort of way, as life goes. Trying now to get un- combobulated from this desperate year and looking forward to the NEW!

    May your Christmas be filled with peace and your New Year filled with creativity and prosperity!

    1. Don't you think we're on a high speed train these days? I don't need to go much faster. Things are always a bit of blur already.

      Thanks so much for stopping in to say hi. Merry Christmas.

  15. I signed up for your Thunderclap on FB, since I have no Twitter, Tumbler, Pinterest, Instagram, or any of those modern social things ... Maybe Santa will give them to me for Christmas. More likely, I'll get coal ... which will soon be a new social media thingie! "COAL" - the new way to burn through even more time on social media!!!

  19. Hi human and celebrity superstar author, Lee,

    Your new young adult book is out and that's very good. Please let me know when your book becomes a pensioner. Arf!

    Cynic alert! Oh my, yet another blog hippety hoppety that leads to a link that really is another way of having somebody bring attention to themselves. Sorry, blog hops are all about a sharing, caring blogging community. Ahem and arf, again!

    I have the strange sensation I've been here before and left this comment....weird, eh.

    Have a peaceful Christmas and the bestest of New Year's.

    Penny the pawblisher to the rescue!

  21. Have a beautiful Christmas. I love the chirps:) I am hectic and riding on fumes right now. We celebrate tomorrow-still have to wrap:). I know that word but I dare not try to spell it. I love that word actually

  22. That was a cute deja vu post! I can totally relate to being discombobulated. That's exactly how I feel about now!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Now I really feel bad that I'm still not on Twitter, and you've been "Chirping" since 2009! It seems like you're busier than ever now, so your practice run really paid off! This was fun, Lee! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  24. Lee, I missed you!

    Discomboobled? Love it! Sounds like it belongs to my whacky word game!
    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Lee.
    Here's to a prosperous 2015, may it be filled with extra glibness and loads of creativity!

  25. It does feel like a juggling act most of the time, doesn't it? I'm dealing with a book release right after the holidays and it's definitely stressful! Too much to do and so little time.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hope you had a Merry Christmas! I loved reading your Deja Vu post! Awesome! I especially love that you made up your own word. :) Here is hoping you have a magical 2015.

    I would love to help you out by posting about your new release on my author tracker blog (since Fairday's Blog is just for MG and picture books). You can email me whatever you would like me to post. :)

    All the best to you-
    Jess

  28. LOL! Catching up with the blog hop :) Love the word discumboobled (although the inner smutty teen in me wants to giggle at boob!). This sounds like my life most of the time, glad it's not just me. Has it got any less discumboobled? x

  29. Very cool.
    I did the Thunderclap. I've never heard of that before-- looks interesting!

  30. A good post about a writer's life, while being lived! Thanks for sharing, and for commenting on my blog. I've never heard of Thunderclap, so thank you for introducing me to it. I'm sorry I got here too late to be of use to you, but looks like you did well anyway! Happy New Year!

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
