So here we be, the evening before Christmas Eve. And oddly enough, even with all the upheaval of the past months and past weeks and days... I'm right on schedule. *LOL* All the prezzies are wrapped and under the tree. I only have stocking stuffers to take care of tomorrow, which is my usual modus operandi. Even though it's in my bedroom and is smaller than usual, I have to say that my tree looks tres, tres festive.
Michael's at his dad's until tomorrow night - when I have to go out and get him. Well, that's after going to pick him and his little half-sister up and take them out for brunch. It's Michael's and my tradition, brunch at Boccacino's on Christmas Eve. This year, now that she's older, I thought Victoria would like to join us, she ADORES her big brother you see. She's all for it. We may take in "Alvin and the Chipmunks" afterwards, all things being equal - like no damned snowstorm. *LOL* Then I take Mike back to his dad's for THEIR traditional Christmas Eve supper of authentic British fish and chips and an evening of tobogganing before returning to pick him up again. That kid needs to get his license!
I'd love to do the year-end writing meme that's going around, but dammit, I haven't finished hardly ANYTHING this past year. This renovation is taking up all my energy. *sigh* But I do
have a bunch of WIPS that I'm really excited about. The story I started for Biffno last year being one of them. My AU Metfic. My super see-crud project. And those are just the multi-chapter fics! I have another whole bunch of bunnies and WIPS waiting for my attention - including a couple in a new (for me) bandom or two. Hopefully a whole slew of them will see posting in '08.
Writing my xmas_rocks
fic felt really good, despite the moaning I subjected a few people to. *LOL* I'm planning on getting more writing done between now and after New Years. I'm off all Christmas Week and then off on Tuesday and Wednesday of the following week for New Years. There's some prime writing time in there! And a plethora of drummers and frontmen vying for my attention. *LOL*
Work that was to be done on the house last week, wasn't. Ben managed to catch the flu. *sigh* If it's not one thing it's another. By this time, we were hopeful that the bathroom would be painted. But nope, it's got it's first coat of mud/plaster, waiting for coats 2 and maybe 3 and THEN I can paint. Maybe next weekend. God, I'll be glad when this is done and I have my house back!
I'm going to settle in to watch one of my favorite Christmas movies tonight. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.
Relax, drink some coffee.. the usual. Hope all of your Sunday evenings are going smoothly and are as eventful as you'd like them to be.
