And so begins a new year…

Hello my friends!

I know my blog has been very quiet lately. December was a crazy month with kids and work and Christmas and holidays. Overall I still had a fantastic holiday season! I hope all of you did as well.

Christmas was wonderful with my kids, parents, sister and her fiancée. The tree was nearly hidden by all of the presents. Us adults had great nights staying up playing poker and something called mexican train dominos (or something like that). Boxing Day shopping was loads of fun as well.

When the boys went off to their dads I wandered down to sunny Florida to refill my sunbeams. Strangely there was a cold spell and nearly froze my butt off. There was still one lovely day, and a visit to the beach was awesome. I was like a 6 year old running around picking up shells and playing in the sand. The ocean was cold, but I still went in for a few minutes, just because! I found loads of pretty shells, some coral and a bunch of broken sand dollars.

Overall I had loads of fun, and even had my first taste of fried pickles. Though leery at first, they were awesome and I can’t wait to have them again the next time I go down. Maybe they are available up here.. but I’ve never seen them!

I know you’re wondering…yes I did go to Disney one day! I haven’t been there since I was 10 years old. A lot was different, or I’ve forgetten, but I remembered some things and that was really neat. Again, I was like a 6 year old (but I could go on all the rides!) I have to say the Princess Castle is still awesome, and I loved how they lit it up at night with lights. The Electric Parade was fantastic, and so was later when they projected images on the castle changing into everything from a gingerbread house to flames! The best part was the fireworks. I’ve never seen any so fantastic! I wish pictures would have turned out.

So after returning home I’ve been spending the time tryin to get caught up on blogs and fb and twitter and emails. 0_o I’m still working on it, next comes dealing with a messy house. The xmas tree is still up!

I’ve loads planned for 2012, with Broken Aro coming out in October, as well as a number of shorts and who knows what else. My butt is getting into gear… time to continue my quest for world domination 🙂

Wishing you all a super wonderful 2012!!

    A lovely post, I enjoyed the visual of your holidays! Here’s to a Broken Aro!

  2. Very cool! We were in Disneyland in early December thanks to my son’s high school band. They were able to march down Mainstreet which is always cool. Second time! We love hanging out at Disneyland!
    When you achieve world domination, will there be any gigs for your minions?? Some sort of ambassador post?
    Have a great week!
