You know those boring people who only ever have one or two things
to talk about? Yeah, that’s kind of me right now. I’m not even being
dramatic when I say that last week consisted solely of work and crochet
and writing – and nothing else. No good TV (that’s totally not my
fault), barely any social interaction online or off, and the only other
thing I did was spend three and a half hours putting together a digital
jigsaw puzzle to try to earn more digital money for more digital puzzles
– I was resting my hands at the time (sort of…my left hand, anyways).
Crocheting for that many days in a row with a plethora of different
fibers is really quite hard on the hands (builds good muscle though!).
got signed into my Simpson’s Tapped Out game on my tablet again too
(apparently one of the latest updates finally fixed it on my Galaxy Note
8 after the Thanksgiving update broke it).
did finally finish all of the gift scarves I was working on (the last
at 2am this morning), and the afghan is very nearly done…just need to
finish the border and taking care of all the loose ends. I’ll finish
that tonight. The wrapping is mostly done too, which is good. And I
have a good idea of what I’ll do for gifts next year, which is also
good…I’ll start in January and hopefully finish early next year.
also got a good deal of writing done last week – finished off the
Christmas installments of the holiday serial stories, so those will be
posted on Wednesday as promised, and the completed drafts are with the
editor, so they’ll be out sometime in early January, as promised. I also
got all the regular serial scenes done, as well as started working on
the MacKenzie draft again, so with any luck, I’ll have another
installment of that story to post soon as well. Ever forward, right? I’m
happy to be getting back to that story…I’m anxious to see how
MacKenzie & Josh are going to get through this latest hurdle (and
the one I’m about to throw at them too).
week will be weird with the holiday right smack-dab in the center, and
our time scheduled for pretty much all of it. Christmas eve with the
in-laws right after work on Tues., brunch on Christmas morning with my
parents, and then Christmas dinner with the in-laws again later that
afternoon. So a good 30 hours or so of bouncing back and forth for
holiday engagements. But we have caramel vodka and apple cider, which
should make at least a couple of those hops a little more pleasant.
Get all the decorations down and the house cleaned up this coming
weekend for the new year. (I haven’t even vacuumed in two weeks due to
the mail, and mail a couple gifts that didn’t make it out on time to
arrive for Christmas.
you celebrate, I wish you and yours a very happy holiday week, and may
you have plenty of alcohol and dessert to help you deal with family
along the way.
