It is with great joy that I tell you that, as of this writing, Caroline and I have dodged the stomach bug. However, I am feeling a little bit queasy but also accept that I can be a big hypochondriac with psychosomatic tendencies. I’m trying to be a big girl and mind over matter the whole thing. We’ll see how that plays out.
Of course if the likelihood of Caroline or me getting through this whole thing unscathed is proportionate with the amount of bleach and Lysol I’ve used today, then we should be aces.
In other news, I need to confess that our outdoor Christmas decorations are still up. It’s been weighing heavy on my soul, but apparently not heavy enough to actually do anything about it. I truly feel ashamed that our outdoor decor has outlasted not only Epiphany, but even Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday. Especially because our sweet neighbors across the street called a few days ago to make sure everything was okay since they couldn’t help but notice our porch is still bedecked in red ribbons, garland and multi-colored lights.
But in our defense it has been very cold and rainy over the last few days. I have no excuse for all the days prior to that.
And now you’re wondering why on earth the title of this post is Maybe I Really Am Oprah. Do I have some inside information? Does Oprah leave the Christmas lights up in her rose garden and her Chicago penthouse way too long? Is Oprah the scourge of her neighborhood?
As far as I know the answer is no.
But Oprah has a book club. And so do I. (At least for the next five weeks!)
And Oprah gives things away. And over the next two weeks I have three different giveaways scheduled.
Before you get too excited, I should warn you that none of these things are trips or cars or Tory Burch bags. However, they are a few things that I love and that’s why I want to give you a chance to win.
So, everyone in the audience is getting A CHANCE TO ENTER A GIVEAWAY!
It lacks a little something doesn’t it?
But, seriously, you don’t want to miss the first giveaway. It’s a 12 x 12 gallery-wrapped canvas print of your choice from Red Letter Words.

It’s like Christmas came early! Or late!
Just like my front yard.
