I'm alone, the laundry is done, the house is clean, I have a cup of coffee and the Christmas music is on. Let the good times roll.

It's been a rough couple of weeks. I'm taking lots of medicine for various ailments, most of which are solely my fault. Though, I did wake up thinking I was having a heart attack, only the pain radiating down my left arm was only a pinched nerve in my shoulder. Apparently I did something in the middle of the night that made the pain unbearable, but I didn't die, in case you were wondering. Anyhow, it's better now. It was just weird. Sucks getting old. All you twenty-somethings? Enjoy it. It's all downhill from here. ;)

I've written all of a handful of words since NaNo ended; All my writing buddies are otherwise occupied, and I've tagged in everything that can be tagged so it's been a lonely couple of weeks. I've dusted off a few of my WIPs, though, and that's fun. I need to do outlines for them, because I tend to ramble and go off on tangents if I don't follow dramatic structure. I do so love writing snarky characters, though. Fun.

Nolan just called a moment ago and asked that I "whip up" gifts for his clients; 50 packages of sweets and breads, some of which will need to be shipped to various places in the U.S. Can't stand it when the man has brainstorms. It usually means more work for me, it does. Most of my Christmas shopping is done - I still have a few things to get, but it's of the "go in, buy, leave" variety. My favorite. I can't stand going shopping for something and I've no idea what to get. Makes for Cranky!Carrie.

No one wants that. Especially not around Jesus' b-day.

He played a "COWBOY NERD" (!?) and was definitely the comic relief. The best part is that he had a ball.

Maybe I can convince him to take theatre classes, now.

Your young'un is a funny duck chicken. *shakes head* Too cute!

I'm sorry about your shoulder, hon. Glad you're on the mend with it, though, and you need to SHADDUP! with the getting old...I'm older than you. :P!

*hopes there was some specific writing done*   *cackles*

Mmmmm! BREAD! Homemade! YUUUUMMM!   xD

Us twenty somethings? Well, this one is definitely feeling the pain. It's cold and my body is stiff. *is old*

I'm the one holding up all my usual writing buddies -_- ... it's weird to write with people now. Did some drabbles to try and get the gears moving. Wish I could do snark. Love yours. *ded*

Also, Ethan is the cute. Facial expression in the second one is priceless.

I hear you sister! I'm feeling ouchy, fat and old all at once. And I'm cranky as hell. *sighs*

I hope you feel better really soon. It sucks to be sick at this time of the year. How is the weather holding up on your end? I keep talking to family and friends who are all cursing about the white stuff and the cold.

I love Ethan's face. It's just too cute. Do I see an Elvis in the background? Wow. What kind of Christmas play was this? :)

There are times when it's safer to go 'LALA LALA" when husbands start giving ideas.

Also, I am fully dedicated to writing something, if you are up for it. haven't wanted to bug you if you were still recovering from Nano or something.

i slept on my arm wrong last night and woke up to shooting pains. That was uncomfortable.

But I have new clothes (jeans and a sweater) that are super cute, and a lot of exciting things going on, so I can't complain.

I think you rock, Carrie.

Oh. buy 50 Mason Jars and make 'ready to go cookies' with 'just add such and such"?

also, Ethan looks adorable.

You are a good woman. I would've told Nolan to whip up a heapin' helpin' of go f&*# yourself.

Dude... I just went through that pinched nerve thing, only mine was up in the base of my neck. Still, it affected the whole left side... arm tingling, thought I was having a heart attack, all of it. I feel your pain (and fear).

The pictures are adorable. And I'll make sure to keep in mind the advice when I'm twenty something years old.

Ethan is so cute!

I can't stand going shopping for something and I've no idea what to get.

I have a lot of that to do and I'm not looking forward to it. I get cranky just thinking about it :(

It's just not fair that we begin to suffer all sorts of things as we get older. It would really make more sense to have all these ailments when we're young, so we can bounce back quicker ;)

what a cutie pie! aislynn refuses to take any acting classes, even those family ones where everyone gets put in the play in the end :(

Can't stand it when the man has brainstorms.

and that made me a bit hysterical!

Did I hear you say dusting off WIPs??? Any "Marrying Pansy Parkinson" in that pile? *bats eyelashes*

But you must be pretty busy whipping up triple batches of holiday confections, and packaging and delivering/mailing them.

And that's one funny/expressive kid you got there! Wonder where he got that from. *smiles*

OMG, he looks like Ralphie from A Christmas Story - so cute!

Yeah. Husbands with great ideas that there is no time to pull off should be smacked around. :P Or at the very least, take their miracle-worker wives who manage to do the impossible out for a very nice dinner date or a show. ;)

I guess I've been lucky in the pain department. Although I'm at least 10 years ahead of you, I have very little of it. I occasionally have mild leg aches and sometimes aches in my arm that last for about 20 or 30 minutes. Don't know why, but I've had those ALL my life. So it's nothing to do with age.

Now, I am a little behind on my Christmas shopping. I have one gift. So I have some more work to do. :P
