Needed to write about this. Posted this on the regular blog. Link’s below.
Very quick sum-up:
Family medical crisis averted
Lots of WoW – ding! 79
Lots of snow
Lots of fic pondering, but not much writing (working on that)
Not a long weekend for me – I iz at work.
Now in depth… behind the cut…
Mom called me a bit ago, and said that she wasn’t coming up for Christmas. Which is both sad, because I do love seeing my mom – and this time my brother would be coming (who I haven’t seen since my wedding). But at the same time, it was only for an overnight visit, which I thought was a bit tight/made no sense since it’s a 5 hour drive in the best of weather.
The idea of her coming up was one of those impromptu things anyway – just happened like, last week or so. So it’s not really one of those big irritating things.
So Christmas will be quiet, with just Erich, Matt and myself. Which is good – the house is a wreck, and now I can do the original plans of writing, cleaning up my office and getting settled into it again, and catching up on some small projects that I just keep putting off. Erich has to work Friday, and I have no desire to endure Mall Hell, so I’ll just stay home and putter. It will be good.
And sadly, our tree will have to come down this weekend anyway – it stopped taking water about three weeks ago and is starting to get dangerously dry. I was hoping it would keep through Christmas, and it will – just barely. But the branches are starting to curl. I think the tree lot just didn’t make a deep enough initial cut on the trunk, honestly. It was a gorgeous tree this year, too. *sigh*
I’ll still make something yummy for Christmas dinner – I was thinking about some sort of a roast. I’ll figure that out tonight since I’ll need to do some shopping.
(and on a stupid little note… it’ll certainly make handling the Who episode stuff easier!)
Watched VotD again this morning on my commute to work.
