    Yes I am! Thanks. Been lazy myself, puttering around deciding important things like which side of the couch to sit on.

    Those kinds of decisions are of vital importance. After all, there is one perfect place to sit, and you have to consider all angles when picking your spot.

    At least you can move if you don’t like the location you choose

    It's true. It does take energy though. I may need a cookie to help me.

    Congrats on post 33,333, Lil!

    In other exciting news... I found my ribbon! I'd bought ribbon to dress up the jars of marmalade I want to give away for Christmas, and then when I went to get it, I couldn't find anywhere! I practically tore my bedroom apart as well as the area around my desk. I even looked in my baking supplies cupboard on the off chance I'd put it there (that's where the jars of marmalade are currently residing). So this morning, I thought, I'll just have a look in these bags of yarn under my desk upstairs, and there it was, sitting in the bag of leftover yarn from when I was making scarves and shawls! I'm so happy I found it. I hate losing stuff. (no hope for the cup of butter I somehow lost, though)

    Today I think I'm going to the mall with Mr C for a bit, but then I'm hoping to come home and do some work on my story. I think I also better tidy up the mess I made upstairs too. LOL

    Hope everyone is doing well!

    Yay for finding your ribbon! I hate losing things, too.

    Sounds like a fun day, for sure. I’m just looking over what I wrote yesterday and trying to make sense of it, then need to get some NaNo words done. Exciting, for sure.

    Well, as long as I don’t think too hard about how crappy they are, I can keep going. If I stop to edit too much or analyze, I’m doomed.

    No editing or analyzing until you've got the first draft done!

    I'm going to have to do major editing and 'polishing' when I start through my story for the second go-through. But I'm not thinking about that right now. Today, I'm going to have a bridge collapse under my second MC. And I should add that my second MC is the one who had his finger cut off, and it's now infected, so he's sort of one-handed at the moment.

    My mc recently came in contact with an IED. He survived, but barely.

    You wrote that at 8:15am. I've been severely sleep-deprived this week and have nowhere to be on my lazy Sunday. You'd better bloody believe I was asleep! lol

    Well done finding your ribbon, Jay.

    Hellish.

    Work's been nuts.

    - - - Updated - - -

    BUSY. Lots of emergencies. Lots of crap to follow-up from while we were away.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Mr. BF's off to Brisbane this afternoon for a week. Sigh.

    And we're seriously looking at QLD properties.

    eta: I'll be back soon. Need coffee.

    I think that might be the worst thing about holidays - the absolute nightmare that work is when you return.

    Everybody getting in for their eye check before the end of the year, eh?

    Bummer that Mr BF will be gone for a week.

    Wow. You're really thinking of moving to QLD?

    Hey, BF!

    I'm glad to hear you were asleep. I was, of course, thinking it was Saturday and that you'd be at work. Because despite my intimate knowledge of the time difference, I often forget the day is different, too.

    Ugh for busy work week. Double ugh for Mr. BF being gone. Yay for looking at QLD properties!

    This time next week I will be on a beach in Florida.

    Hooray Lil! You do get a cookie!

    I'm patient. I'm patient. I'm...not. I won a chapter critique and I'm anxiously awaiting to hear back. I just redid the first chapter too, so I'm even more curious...I'm patient... I'll just keep saying that. I would be easier if I got confirmation it was received, ya know? (Been a week, I know, be patient. Easy for you to say *squinty eyes*)

    Part that (it always gets busier and busier after Cup Day), and part I've been away for effectively 3 weeks. I have some patients who'll only see me, so I'm always flat-out after I go away. Plus, lots of paperwork (referrals and reports that piled up while I was gone) to write. I've been staying back late to do paperwork, coz there hasn't been any other time during the day. Which leads to:

    Kinda, yep. Mr. BF spent a chunk of yesterday researching areas and looking at properties we could get. We're just trying to mentally separate "holiday experience" from "living there reality." I'm leaning towards a 1-2 year jaunt. Take a break from eyes and concentrate on writing. Get a nice place (house or apartment) right on the beach.

    But we're definitely looking at it as a serious option. (Though it wouldn't be for another couple of years. Mr. BF has work-stuff to sort out).

    Ha. Firstly -- congrats on winning the critique! Woot!

    I'm always torn with getting feedback (like, from betas or whatever). Half of me is super-impatient and just wants to know, already! The other half is terrified and never ever wants to find out what the verdict is.

    Thanks! Yup. This one may have more bite because the critiquer has won awards (gulp).
