My husband is home!

Why am I writing this instead of ignoring the world? He's sleeping. It's so weird to walk into my bedroom and see someone sleeping on my bed.

I fell back into my writing-while-he's-sleeping routine really quick. Now if he'd just sleep longer...

Most of my Christmas shopping is done, Christmas cards are at least bought. And sorted. But not addressed, no notes written. I'm glad my husband is home. As much as his handwriting sucks, my wrist can't take writing that much. I'd print labels but the ink for my printer is way too pricey.

Medical note: I may get to have surgery on my wrist! I figured it was coming, I've had problems for so long. Getting some test done to see if I really need surgery at this point or not. I went to see my doctor about my knee and he caught me on my wrist pain. Needed to happen eventually. Did you know carpal tunnel can cause permanent damage if not treated properly? I didn't.


No clue if my goal of having the 2nd draft of Ivory done by the end of the year or not is reachable, but I'm going to keep trying.

And I'm getting really excited to dive into the first draft of my next idea...gettin antsy.


Making lots of Christmas cookies. I'll take pictures of some of them when I remember. The camera I have runs on AA's and I so ran out. Just bought more today.

Also might be making cupcakes. My husband, who hates cake, believes he likes cupcakes. Do I risk having to eat them all myself if he discovers he really doesn't like them, or just hope he really does like them? Ooo. Or he could bring them to work and give them to the guys. They'd love cupcakes. Sweet.

Off to get more 'work' in before he wakes up.



  1. There is always a calm in my spirit when my husband is near.

    Happy writing!

  2. Congrats on your husband being back. Sounds like a busy, but happy, holiday. And I think extra cupcakes are always appreciated at work (I certainly like sweets other people bake!)

  3. Ouch, I'm sorry about your wrist! Make sure you get a good therapist who can tell you how to best position your keyboard.

  4. WOO-Hoo! I'm so glad your husband is home. Risk the cupcakes and eat the leftovers--you deserve it!

  5. Thanks all!

    I made brownies instead, the cupcakes are so happening next week though. The guys have to go in for ONE day, for ONE briefing before being able to sign out for leave.
