And the holiday is over...

Spent a very festive Thanksgiving at my Sil's with the rest of the family. The food and the togetherness was lovely. Friday morning, Dh and I braved the crowds and headed to Circuit City in the wee hours of the morning. We got our stuff in twelve minutes and waiting in line to buy them for two hours and fortyfive minutes. They were averaging ten minutes per customer. If we hadn't been saving so much money on items we had already planned on getting the kids we would have left. But did have a lovely breakfast with the dh before heading out to shop for more deals.

I managed to get the last three articles for this month finished and have a lovely week of vacation before I have to get busy on December's articles. I should work on fiction, but frankly am not feeling very motivated. My agent read HOT/Dash and pointed out a few plot problems to me and I'm just like ... eh. She's totally right of course, but just not feeling the urge to write, right now, you know?

We brought our former foster kids to the house today. I just love those kids. But I can't let them come back. I was pulling my hair out after two hours. I sent my daughter with the DH to take them home as I'd had enough! It is very sad to see how they are living now, though:( The filth and smell is unimaginable. Mom looked like she hadn't bathed in a week. Very tragic. Those little ones don't have a chance:(

Well, say a little prayer or light a candle that I will get my writing Mojo back!

Congrats on finishing the articles, but...that's hard about the kids. They were doing so well when they were with you. I will keep them in my prayers.

As for the writing, a plotting party is a definite must!
