Life Lately

Good riddance to November!

This is one month I am glad to see ending. It never seems to fail--every stinking time November rolls around, things go to shit. Between work, family/personal stuff and the holidays, I'm ready to bid this month a not-so-fond-farewell and usher in December with open arms.

Here is some of the good, the bad and the ugly (in no particular order) from the past month:
  • Spent Thanksgiving with my family--mom, dad, brother and aunts. There was lots of really good food. Even more laughter and a really good time remember Mum (my grandmother). It was a really great day of remember just how amazing my life really is.
  • Work has been CRAZY. I'm trying to see the positive in that though--I'd much rather be crazy busy than bored out of my mind with nothing to do, which has been the case. I feel like I've been running around with a chicken with its head cut off for the last four weeks. No bueno.
  • I met one of my favorite authors, Michael Connelly. I totally nerved up when he was signing my book and was really only able to say "This is really awesome. Thanks." 
  • I said good-bye to my cat Miss Cleo (she was absolutely named after the t.v. psychic) and she was the sassiest (some may say bitchiest) cat I have ever had the pleasure to have known. I still remember the night a friend of mine and I went to pick her up and then the argument that ensued with the guy I was "seeing" at the time over what to name her. Bringing her home was one of the best decisions I have ever made and she will be missed dearly. 


  1. Awww. Miss Cleo looks like she was a beauty. I'm so sorry you had to say goodbye to her.

  2. Aww sorry to hear aboout your kitty :( I hope December brings you much happier things.
