  1. Hey. I have to apologize, but I won’t be able to write my post for the blogathon. I’m away interstate visiting family, and my aunt is very sick with terminal stage four cancer. I visited her on Tuesday and she was a lot worse than what I initially thought. I’ve been very worried about her. I’m very sorry, but I definitely make up for it with your next blogathon.

    1. That’s alright, lovely! Thanks for joining anyway, and I hope your aunt feels better. I had been thinking about doing a blogathon for Zsa Zsa Gabor’s 100th birthday even before she passed, but I really wanted to find someone to collaborate with and there have been no takers so far. Aside from that I have no blogathon plans!

  2. Just want to let you know I haven’t forgotten about my post! I just didn’t have time to write it last week but I am working on it now and should be finished by tonight. Sorry it’s so late!! Looking forward to catching up on reading entries from all of the blogathons I’ve been in this month in January, as there only appears to be my Carole Lombard Blogathon scheduled. I joined too many this month!
