it’s almost christmas…

It’s almost Christmas and I should be more excited. The holidays are stressful. I have a few more orders to get done, but they should be fairly quick. I also have a few presents to get done for my family. I’m actually looking forward to wrapping presents. I think it’s fun. I like making boxes look pretty under the tree.

Due to the fact that annoying things are attracted to me, I lost my license for driving without insurance. It’s going to take forever to get it back. It makes me so ridiculously upset that I didn’t do something fun to get in trouble. No I followed all of the traffic laws and got pulled over for something the cop admitted I didn’t do and got a ticket for something that I wasn’t aware of. I mean, if I’m going to get in trouble, I want to do something rebellious and sinister. That would make it feel a little better, right? Maybe? Maybe not. Maybe I just don’t like getting in trouble.

The week after Christmas Josh is going hunting and the kids are going to go stay with his mom for a day (maybe two). I’m hoping to find a hotel room that I can afford in Boise so that when I get a break I can at least do something. I have this fear that I’m going to end up without a license and stuck in my house. I would rather be stuck in Boise and close to coffee and a movie theater.

The comic seems to be doing pretty well. We’ve been putting it up for 6 months now and we haven’t lost any of our readers. I think that is a pretty darn good start. By this point I figure the people that were reading it to be nice would be done with it if they didn’t like it. I’m still enjoying writing it and I have all kinds of story ideas. I suppose that is an excellent place to be.

A few weeks ago I started a new blog. I’ve been selling a few of my toys and things. It’s keeping me busy and I enjoy feeling like I am actually doing something with my time. I pretty much suck at the whole stay at home mom thing. I’m not a fan of cooking and cleaning and sitting all day with a smile on my face waiting for my husband to come home. I really, really wish I was. If I could transform myself into Donna Reed I would be tempted, but since I can’t, having a hobby has really helped.

Speaking of hobbies, my book has been going pretty well. I work on it when I can, and it keeps me feeling like I’m using my brain. That is a very good thing because occasionally I feel like my brain may be turning into complete mush.

I think it’s time to wrap a few presents now. It would be good to do it while the kids are napping.
