Birthday Followup  
My birthday was really nice, and thanks so much to all of you who remembered! I got messages and v-gifts and emails and comments, and it all made the day so very wonderful. ♥

I took the day off and just spent some time with my husband, going out for coffee and scones and doing this and that. His hip has gotten so bad that something like going out of town for wine-tasting or looking at antiques was out of the question (too much movement), and he has to be ready to pick up our son from school at 2:20. But we enjoyed the relaxation! I bicycled in the afternoon (great weather), and then the family went out for Chinese food. Sunday, we took a family birthday trip to Apple Hill. That's a local growers' area in the foothills, with crafts and lots of apple-based foods. I bought almost 10lbs of Gravensteins there, so I'll have a good supply to stretch out toward Xmas. :D

Aside from that, I've been trying to get my Zombie-fest story finished for the Undead Big-Bang, so I need to get back to that. It's due *bites nails like a cartoon typewriter* tomorrow, so... yeah. o_O

:D

Did you write your alphabet story?

I'm glad you had a good birthday. Happy belated. :)

I'd hoped to, but I'm running out of time and the Zombie thing is on deadline.

If the final closeout is midnight, I might squeeze something out, but otherwise, no. And I had ideas! *cries*

I'm glad your birthday was good. :) Also yay Apple Hill! It sounds awesome.

Uh-oh! Stttooorrrryyy! The zombies want a story! Or they'll be unreasonable and eat your eyeballs! ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQYjZc7gKXc

In reality, I find zombies kind of frightening!

Really, given how I feell about the whole genre, I was really surprised to be writing it. But the idea-- it was too good to pass up. Not as cracktastic as I'd originally envisioned, but still fun. :D

Glad you had a good birthday! :) And hey, best of luck on that zombie thing. *chuckle*

Dang zombies! So ill-behaved.

But I finished in time, at least. Wrote 1900 words yesterday to finish the thing, which is practically a miracle for me!

Wow, that there's a lot of writing. :) Congrats!

Happy belated birthday! I'm glad you got to spend it with people you love. ♥

(Also hoping time passes quickly until HSH's surgery, so he's out of pain asap.)

Thank you!

We're really looking forward to having that hip surgery out of the way. The pain just grows steadily worse, and the range of motion more limited. Only about 3 weeks left!

I didn't forget! I was out of town! Argh. Happy late birthday, m'dear.

Thank you!

Glad you had such a good time at Wincon, and that you got to go again! I'm hoping to be there next year, though if it falls on my birthday again, maybe not. *sadface*
