The rest of the weekend was busy. I took Lauren to the mall (!!!) on Black Friday because she needed winter clothes. It was not as awful as I expected, but still not good. The next few days involved cleaning up after Thanksgiving, organizing, driving the kids around, and lots of yardwork. Saturday, a notice from the IRS arrived. Really-- it feels like I can never get out from under anything. A new piece of grief arrives and just falls on top of the pile!
For your amusement, I offer two Blue Pueblo pictures on the theme of "What has been seen cannot be unseen." I know what was intended in both cases, but look at the results: Squid House, and Doofus Roof with too many eyes. Seriously!
I've been creeping along on my Yuletide fic (which really doesn't want to catch fire), and all those amazing prompts/etc. I saved up for November have led exactly nowhere! Too much stress and falling asleep at the keyboard. :(
I hope to have my holiday Wish List posted up this week, but I struggle with finding 10 things I want (especially when some of the wishes I see are from people who are just buried in financial trouble. All of my wants are so trivial. Well, the ones that don't involve fantasies of lottery-winnings and such that will never happen). Got your list posted up? Link me to it!
