Happy New Year!!!

Where did 2009 go? Seems like I was sucked into a holiday whirlwind right before Halloween, and am only just now emerging, battered and broken but triumphant. I have survived another holiday season! Days are getting longer, and I'm grateful for the snow-and-sunshine perfect Durango weather. I can't believe it's been so long since my last post...
Or maybe I can. It's been a wild winter so far. In September, we moved into a lovely little house. In October, I participated in the Ferocious Feelings art show. In November, I lost my job -and we moved again. I also found a new and better job, wrote 95,000+ words of a novel, and participated in National Novel Writing Month. We hosted a roll-your-own sushi party for Thanksgiving- our first party in the new house. It was a lot of fun, and we'll be doing it again soon! In December I finished my Nano Novel just a few days before Christmas-yay!- and started work on a new story I'd put aside during nanomadness. I disappeared into a word-vortex, and am only now stepping back into real time. It's good to be home! More updates soon... for now, I'm heading back to my studio for a little writing session.
Happy New Year!
