Merry Christmas  
I hope you're all having a wonderful day. It's pretty quiet for me, no family or friends around, so I'm just chillin'. I worked my overnight shift last night and will be working tonight as well. But that's totally groovy because I finished my story for my VM_Santa last night and I totally didn't expect to, but I did! Yay! It's just waiting a beta-read now. And it just feels so good because I haven't finished a VM fic (or any fic) in a long time for various reasons. Finishing that (and feedback from my betas) has really pumped me up to write more of another fic I'm writing, so I'm very happy about that.

Loot wasn't all that much (four towels, Bath & Bodyworks lotion/body splash, National Treasure), but the reaction from my family to their gifts was wonderful and certainly made me a happy camper. They say this is the season of giving and I certainly got joy from that, so yay!!

Hope you're all having a wonderful holiday!

I just send you an email about the beta. Let me know and I'll work on it some more when I get back home later tonight.

I really need a bunk right now, but that isn't happening.

Sent one back. I really appreciate your help! :D

Hope you have an overall great day.

We have eaten a *ton* of chocolate and now we're cooking Christmas dinner - LOL!

Have a great rest of the day :)

Congrats on finishing the fic, and having inspiration for more!  Always a good thing.  Let's hope some of that luck rubs off on me, 'cause if I don't get my fic-writing ass in gear soon, I'm going to be screwed...

If you've got a deadline, normally that's the thing that really does get you going. I knew I had more days, but I just kept pushing myself last night and lo and behold, I finished it, woohoo!!!

I am a little nervous about the other fic because it's a WIP and it's got a mystery for Veronica to solve and deals with their relationship and aaaahhhhhh!!! We'll see ...

Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas, my dear - and you sound so much like me...I'm really all about the gift-giving, as opposed to the gift-receiving! Mine all went over well, too, so I'm v. chuffed!

Enjoy the rest of your day! :-D

Aww, thanks Emma. Okay, now don't get me wrong, gift-receiving is lovely too, LOL! But like you, I really and truly did get kick out of the response to the gifts. And it totally made me feel like the BEST aunt ever, yay!!!

It's a quiet Christmas, but not lonely, I got my kitties (one of 'em <-- thataway) and they're wonderful and I just feel at peace.

Enjoy your day as well. :D

Oh, I love getting gifts as well, but there's just something so amazingly satisfying about choosing presents for people and having them be well-received. Really makes you feel great!

Be well! :-D
