Merry (Late) Christmas!

I hope all of you who celebrate Christmas had a nice one, whether yours ran toward contentment or joy or somewhere in between.

Ours was terrific, and the kids even let me sleep in now that they're older. I was up last night until 1 a.m. doing the final Santa-izing and fighting off a cold, and still felt pretty tired today.

For yuletide, I got the one fandom on my list that I thought was least likely—Mayhem! I would have loved any of the fandom choices, but didn't dare hope for that one, so YAY! The story is here, and there are a few other Mayhem offerings this year too. :D

I finished my main story well before the deadline, and got in three extra treats for random people. I always hope to write more, and yet three seems to be about my maximum—even in the years where I don't write an actual story. Nothing this year was on par with the J. Alfred Prufrock poem I wrote last year, but that would be hard to equal anyway. OTOH, the longest of the treat stories was something I wouldn't have even thought of as a fandom, so it was a surprise to me as well as to the recipient!

Thanks to heliokleia, tuesdaeschild, and clare_de_lune for the lovely v-gifts. You were all so much more on the ball than I was—I even expected to have this post up sometime late this morning, and yet it's now 11pm. Wow.

Off to shop for a few replacement light sets and such tomorrow, then driving up to Oregon the next day. If I don't talk to you in the next week, be well and be safe, and hold your loved ones close. ♥
