Yes, I have. Ha! Nah, it's just that things have become...well, insane is too tame a word. Basically, I get up, go to work, deal with extreme insanity and then have to deal with it all over again the next day. In truth, I'm exhausted. *yawn*
My Thanksgiving was lovely. My brother, SIL and the boys went up to Chehalis to be with her family, so it was just the parents and myself. My mom bought cold cuts, we made HUGE sandwiches, they watched an old WWII movie and I watched Anne of Green Gables (Parts 1, 2, & 3). I finally broke down and bought it. I'd forgotten just how much I love these movies. Le sigh.
Reading's been good. I've read some great ones and some stinkers but I've been reading. My writing has basically fallen by the wayside, but I've promised myself I'm going to start back up in the new year. Right now, working retail, I'm lucky I can think straight by the end of the day.
Here's a question: have you ever wanted to write a sequel for a book, especially for a character whose story was never written because the author retired before his story could be written? I have a book, which I've talked about a million times, where I've always felt the son of the hero needed his own story. I've started writing it. It'll probably never see the light of day, but I've felt compelled to do this for years and whenever I feel this compulsion, I know better than to ignore it.
Friday I had to work, but after work, I braved the insanity of Black Friday and went to Lloyd Center to pick up some books. I also decided to spoil myself. I bought more camis, some super cute undies, new shoes and this gorgeous purple suede purse. :) I was so bad. lol
And that's about it in my neck of the woods. I'm not online much right now. I've been spending time reading or watching movies. It's braindead entertainment and it works for me. :)
