Pre-holiday drive-by

me!
So yes, I have been awful about posting. But the sad truth is...I haven't had much to say, or, for that matter, much time to say it in.

I appear to be having a fallow time.

I finished NaNo, and shortly thereafter, the novel I was working on. I've also gotten most of the feedback back on the novel I sent out, and it went something like: "Broken. Fix."

No, seriously, it was far more constructive than that. But sort of boiled down to the same thing...

So I decided to give myself the rest of the year off, being, in reality, a few short weeks.

But now I have that sort of itchy feeling, like I want to write something? Only every time I try? Fail. I bore myself before I even get started.

So I guess I'm really going to give myself the rest of the year off, and hope that the itch amounts to something after the close of the year, and that I don't just need to get myself an antifungal.

In other news: HOLIDAY MADNESS!!! But you all know what I'm talking about. Which may be part of the reason for the utter lack of wordage. Shopping is like...98% done - and yes, I know that today is Thursday and Christmas is SUNDAY. *gulp* I have a plan,and it involves a kamikaze shopping trip today, and finishing or dying trying.

But the wrapping...*sigh*

With 1/2 day at school tomorrow, and my presence required at one holiday party, tomorrow is a write-off. Saturday, we go to my mother's and celebrate Christmas. Sunday, after opening our own gifts at home,we stop by my sister's to see my Dad, and then truck off to my in-laws. Fun and relaxing, right? Let's not forget that there is NO spare time for say...wrapping gifts in there. So either I do it today, or we pull a few all-nighters between now and Christmas to get it done.

Guess which one will probably end up happening?

Every year I tell myself "Next year, I'll be more organized!"

And every year, Christmas rolls around and I'm there blinking and stunned going "How did that happen?"

Duh.

Some people never learn.

Anyway, I hope you all have festive, joyful holidays completely devoid of stress of any sort!!

Talk to you in the New Year...

I resemble that remark ...
