I've had an eventful month so far. It never fails that as the holidays approach, my time seems to disappear. I don't know where it goes, but one second it's there and then poof...gone, bye bye.

I've completed all my challenge fics with the exception of the Christmas one, which is kicking my butt. *sighs* I didn't even post a new topic in [ profile] writing_studio this week, so I'll try to do better with that, but remember my time has gone "poof".

In addition to all my stories, my online commitments, and my family obligations, I've been sick for the last couple of weeks. I'm feeling better now, but still a bit groggy from the experience. My twin sons, who will turn seven on the 18th of December, have decided that it's fun and kewl to curse. The favorite one is "Dammit" which they picked up from that stupid video game. I don't allow them to play it, but their father plays it as well as their older brother and they can hear, which no one seems to acknowledge. I live in a house full of males. As the only female, it's left up to me to try and teach the boys some manners, cause let's face it, their father "thinks it's cute." *wants to strangle her hubby*

In addition to all that mess, I completely and totally screwed up my computer. It locked down on me, and I couldn't do anything for almost two days. I know that's an eternity!! Luckily, my hubby was able to revive it.

Now, I'm stressing over Thanksgiving Dinner, which they don't actually "do" here, but Alex insists that he's not missing out on all that food simply because we live in a country that doesn't celebrate the American holiday. Unfortunately for me, I don't have my family here, and in the past, the whole family pitched in with the cooking; so in order to please my husband, I have to do ALL the cooking. *grumbles*

I still have all my Christmas shopping to do and I loathe shopping of any kind. Then, there's the Christmas cards, the decorating, the cooking, the wrapping, and trying to make it a magical experience for the boys. Again, I miss my family because we used to divide up all these chores. Don't get the wrong idea...I love the holidays. I think I just miss my family more during the holidays and start to feel a little sorry for myself.

So, I just wanted everyone to know that I'm still here...just a bit distracted. I'll start posting another story in a couple of soon as I get a handle on all this extra work. *grins*
