Forgive me Blogger.com for I have sinned. It has been two months since my last blog post. This is ridiculous. Why can't I remember to blog more often? I need to do some hail marys and pay penance, I guess. In any case, I'm baaaaaack!
I'm entering into Scrooge phase. I am not a fan of the holidays. I like Thanksgiving--and New Year's Eve and Day are OK but I am not a fan of Christmas. It is too commercialized and I am not religious so that aspect doesn't appeal to me either. I hate the whole process of decorating a friggin' tree and shopping and wrapping presents. It just isn't my thing. But when you have kids (and now grandkids) you have to suck it up and deal. So I am trying. There is one cool thing about December though: my birthday! I'm a 12-12-12 gal! Yeehaw!!!! And, of course, this December is really special because according to the Mayans (or one of those peoples), the world is going to end on 12-21-12! YEEHAW! Seriously????? Sometimes I wake up wondering if the flippin' world didn't already end and someone just forgot to tell me.
My book should be out by my birthday. The Gypsy Thief is closer than ever to coming into the world. I just hope it happens before the 21st or I'm screwed. I will have spent six months in my bedroom writing Gypsy and its two sequels for nothing. I guess that isn't so bad though. Writing is a helluva a great way to pass the time.
I've seen Breaking Dawn Part Two twice now and am about to see it again this week for the third time. I never get enough of that stuff. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I have a girl crush on Stephenie Meyer. So sue me. Sorry. I'm feeling a little feisty. It's the whole holiday thing that's making me a little nutty (cue sarcastic comments from various family members here).
I have successfully rambled about nothing for five minutes now. But before I go, I have a favor to ask. I will speak up so the people in the back of the room can hear me:
IF ANYONE IS ACTUALLY READING THIS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW BY LEAVING A MESSAGE HERE OR ON FACEBOOK.
Thanks. If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one there to see it fall, did it make a sound?
OF COURSE. JUST BECAUSE NO ONE IS LISTENING IT DOESN'T MEAN I AM NOT SPEAKING.
OK. I'm fine now. May the force be with me. And remember: You are not allowed to drop out of a game that you're not actually playing yet...so persevere. Don't give up. Don't quit before you've even set foot on the field. As my mother used to say: "If at first you don't succeed, keep on sucking till you do suck a seed."
