Happy Holidays!

My brain is on holiday -- has been for a while actually -- and I'm just getting over a Merry Christmas virus which has left me with lots of shopping to do on Christmas Eve!

But . . . Santa drove by on the firetruck waking me up in my childhood home. The family's all here. The dogs are playing. And I have Carrie Ryan's The Forest of Hands and Teeth on CD, an excellent driving companion, to keep me company in traffic on Hwy 280!

Cheer, Joy, and Zombies!

Fighting chaos

Today I switched my bedroom and my living room with the help of an orderly friend. He says it's a small victory in the battle against chaos. There are many small battles still raging in this apartment, and I really hope I win.

Tonight my bed is in a new place and the walls look whiter than they did when they had things in front of them and my tapestry and pictures are still centered over things that have been moved.

Change is good.

But it is bad for sleeping.

I'm back!

My computer is sooo healthy! I've got a new keyboard, iSight camera, display, heatpipe, a bunch of latchy things, something called an inverter, all covered by Apple Care!

My joy can only be expressed by singing children!

I think I might be the last person on the planet to discover the PS22 Chorus, but they waited for me, and I'm so glad!

Pauvre bebe!

My poor computer is ill and in the shop.

Which means I don't have internet at home.

Which means I can't blog much.

My computer misses you! But maybe I will see more of some of you in real life. I've realized this week just how plugged in I really am. I'm all right with it, but a break every now and again is not a terrible thing. My house is more organized than it has been all year.

And, yes, all my stuff is backed up. The novel is backed up three or more ways. All is well.
