HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Yeah, I know, I’m a bit late (LOL). So here I am, back from vacation. And let me tell you, I had a GREAT time just hanging out at the house. I played video games, watched movies, did stuff with the kidlets. We went shopping a few times. I didn’t do anything writing related. But yeah, I think I needed that break, kind of let the mind rest. However, now that vacay’s over, I’m back at it. Work is crazy. We’re short staffed right now and it sounds like they don’t intend to hire anyone else on. So, what that means for me? Double work load (ahhh).

On the writing front, I’m waiting to hear back on some projects, not to mention, I’m still trying to decide what story I want to work on next. I have 3-4 possibilities, just not sure which is calling more at the moment.  Figure I’ll give myself til next week to start figuring it out (LOL).

And OMG, my football team (Detroit Lions) are in the playoffs (holy crap—squuuuuuuuueeeeee). This is their first appearance since 1999. Totally stoked. Unfortunately, our first round opponent is New Orleans (boo/hiss). LOL. Yeah, it’ll be a tough game, but I’m so excited. I SO SO SO hope they pull of the win. ROAR (that’s my lion impression).  And speaking of football, don’t want to forget about my boys at the University of Michigan, who won the Sugar Bowl (OH YEAH). Totally humming the fight song. Hehehehe.  Lots to cheer about.

Finally, I come to the portion about The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle  (spoiler alert).

ELENA AND DAMON FINALLY KISSED!!!!! That’s right, the moment I’ve been waiting for since the beginning. Hehehe. And I admit that I rewound the DVR a few times during that scene! Really loved all the twists last night. The fact that Stefan is back and town and being a bad ass is kinda cool (LOL). Although, I wonder where Katherine has run off to again. And I didn’t see the whole using compulsion on Jeremy thing coming (Damon/Elena sending him out of town). I liked the united front of Alaric, Damon, and Elena though. Of course, Klaus is still causing havoc and I’m trying to figure out what he’s going to do with Tyler. Lots going on. And I can’t wait to see what they do with Bonnie/the coffins. But yeah, my favorite moment last night was THE KISS. SIGH.

And wow, how about The Secret Circle? OMG, I was so excited for last night to see Cassie’s powers. I have to say Diana’s grandma is kind of a bitch (LOL).  I’m really not liking Faye’s mom and Diana’s dad either. Bunch of conniving peeps. It was good to see Adam showing some interest in Cassie again, even after she almost choked him. And I have to say, I hope Jake comes back. He’s one of those characters that you know is bad, but has some good intentions as well. Also looks like Faye is going to be wreaking some havoc again, will be interested to see what happens with her. I hope we get to see the kids find out about the master tools (like they do in the books) and maybe have Adam go look for them. I really liked that arc in the book. So yeah, so much to look forward to. It’d be awesome to see Adam and Cassie have a moment as well (LOL).

Well, hope everyone has an AWESOME WEEKEND! I’ll be doing a lot of traveling we have basketball for my daughter and my son is a part of a Honors Orchestra  and they have a big concert on Sunday. And of course, Saturday, the Lions are playing New Orleans (so can’t miss it).

Phew, I can’t believe it’s already Thanksgiving (or at least it is tomorrow). I’ve got so many things to be thankful for. A loving/supportive family, my FAB crit group, my agent, so many blessings have made this year awesome.  We’ve also had some family crisis this year, but thanks to God we’ve managed to make it through them all—a little stronger at that.

Tomorrow we’ll be making a couple hour car trip down to my brother’s for Thanksgiving.  And keeping with tradition, we’ll have the game on. What game you ask? OMG, are you serious? LOL. Okay, so I’m a SUPER LIONS FAN.  I’m SO excited for the Lions game (squee). I’m hoping we give the Packers their first loss of the season! The family is already geared up for turkey and football (oh yeah)….yes, we’ll be eating and yelling and cheering (trying not to dump mashed potatoes all over the place).

Basically, I’ll get all dressed up in my Suh Jersey (classy, I know). LOL. But got to show the team spirit.

Usually we host Thanksgiving, so it’s kind of nice not to have to cook this year (we’re hosting Christmas instead).  I also have a couple of days off of work (the day job), so I’m hoping to put in some time with edits/applying crits on TLOM (I’m like a 3rd of the way through it).  Would like to have to Agent Lady by end of December.

And, I have to say I’m going through some withdrawals.  Um, yeah, have you NOT noticed the absence of The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle (ahhhh). I’m like a TV show addict. When I’m not watching, I’m wondering what everyone’s doing or what the heck is going to happen when the shows come back. I mean, come on Damon HAS to kiss Elena already.  And whoa, are Adam and Cassie going to EVER get a chance to have a romantic moment? What about Jake (who even though he’s bad is kinda good—hehehe)?

Well, peeps, I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving!!!!!
