"Okay, you have fat hair, but when you're ready to talk I'm here."

In which Life happened.

And soup.

But mostly life.

It has been a month since I've written. Likely...no...not likely. Because I am ashamed. I failed NaNo this year. *Sigh* Such is life. I blame school. It was a hard semester. I hated every moment of it, and I love school. 

But now school is over, and it is December. I usually take a break from writing in December, for Christmas reasons, but I've been having fun writing again so will likely continue this month.

Other things in life happened. (No, I am not engaged if that is where your mind went.) No, dogs happened. I am puppy sitting for my friends. Three small puppies who love to claim my bed as their own.

A cat also happened. His name is Oscar from Pandora Hearts. He is an older cat and as sweet as a cat should be. He cuddles with me, especially when I am trying to read.

Today baking happened. And my phone completely died. I wouldn't care normally. I can live without a phone, but I got a new job and they need to keep in contact with me as we deal with all the paperwork. So, now I am without a phone during the one time in my life when I actually need one.

Oh well. Again, such is life.

My car also died, but thank God - I mean that literally - it was under warranty and I didn't have to pay anything to have it fixed. Also, I have the best adopted big brother in the whole wide world and I will stand by this claim.

Right now I am enjoying a snug evening alone. I was able to go out the other day and get my Christmas tree. I made soup for dinner, a tasty soup, and I had apple cider to go with it. The doggies have settled down. And over all life is happy at the moment. 

I am going to be off now, like a herd of turtles, and bury myself in a fuzzy blanket with a good book and Christmas music. And chocolate. Because chocolate. 

Farewell.

  1. And a cat and three puppies.
    Glad school is over. If you're on a roll with writing, keep at it.
    Hope you got your phone fixed. You do need one, even when you don't.

  3. Did you write words in November? Did you start and make excellent progress on a story that you've been wanting to write of quite some time? Yes, Jack, you did. You did not fail NaNo. You just didn't make the 50,000.
