‘Star Wars: The Cestus Deception, A Clone Wars Novel’ – Chapter 4 (Part 1)

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!!!  Well, it somehow didn’t feel totally like Christmas today.  I think it’s just because we opened gifts last night and not this morning.  Not that it’s bad, it’s just change.  I didn’t sleep well last night at my undisclosed location, so I ended up sleeping in later than I normally would.  I got up and had very little for breakfast.  I hung out for a while and then decided to take another nap.  I had to do this because whatever this bug is that I have, it seems to take a lot of my energy right out of me!  I got up from my nap and hung out with the unknown people at the undisclosed location that I was at.  The kids had a blast because they went outside and played in the snow.  We had a good time and even ate a nice Christmas dinner.  My “other” problem with my illness still continues and I can’t seem to shake it.  We stayed until about six o’clock at the undisclosed location and then we traveled home.  We got back to the house by about eight o’clock or so and we unpacked and repacked to get ready to leave tomorrow.  Heather went downstairs to watch “It’s a Wonderful Life”, while I went downstairs and watched “Mythbusters” and then we went to bed together and were exhausted.  Tomorrow was another day of traveling.  This time it was to my parents’ house to celebrate Christmas.  My kids love this concept because they actually get to celebrate THREE Christmases.  But, it ends up being weary on Heather and I.

Okay, let’s talk about Part 1 of Chapter 4 of “Star Wars:  The Cestus Deception, A Clone Wars Novel” by Steven Barnes…..
