Okay, really my grandmother’s house, which is the land of no internet. OMG y’all, if I hadn’t had my iPhone, I’d have been in the nuthouse. She’s back in the nursing home (which is an improvement from the hospital), but it’s looking like she may not improve enough to come home, which has us all sad. We shall see however. I steam cleaned her carpets as a Christmas present, which made her quite happy.
In other random news, during a conversation with my uncle’s pastor, he (the pastor) asked what I did, and I told him I teach at the university. And my mother pipes up that I write too, which I found interesting. It was unexpected. There was a LOT of other stuff going on, so it wasn’t the time to mention it, but it is a step in the right direction.
I am DONE with my Christmas shopping, which is a relief. I’m down to just the baking, which I shall start next week.
While in Texas, I got to hook up with the fabulous Claire Legrand for lunch and Targeting. She is adorable, and we now have matching socks. There are reindeer. Because we are mutually awesome like that.
I have the short story for the indie paranormal anthology all mapped out. Need to do some brainstorming on the bad guy, but I’m pleased with that. Now that I’m home I am gearing up to do any necessary revisions on Devils Eye, but I’m not sure if it will be out by Christmas or not, as my CPs are in the usual time crunch this time of year, which I totally knew could happen, so they will get to it when they are able and then I shall do whatever needs doing. In the meantime I shall be working on Isla’s story (she’s the heroine of the anthology story that REALLY needs a title…).
