Well gang, college is finished for now.  Got straight all A’s in my classes and preserved my 4.o GPA.  I even got back to work on novel #2 yesterday, not a lot, but still over 900 words helps.  I got past a major writer’s block on one scene and have gotten past it, FINALLY!  I was joking with my wife yesterday in the hot-tub of our apartment complex telling her I’d gotten back to writing.  She pointed out, I’d done plenty of writing for the last few months… term paper, presentation, term paper, essay, essay, term paper, essay, essay… etc.  I had to agree she had a point and then some.

Now we’re getting the last of our Christmas wrapping and baking done in order to up to go to Stockton for Christmas.  Her folks will be there and my Mom, who I haven’t seen in a year (SIGH).  We will be coming home on Tuesday, then cleaning up here for some friends to come stay for the New Year’s Weekend with us.  Yes, ’tis a busy time of year, but I am still getting some writing done.  After the New Year’s weekend I’ll hopefully get some serious down time to write.  My only concern is that I’ve got to call in for Jury Duty up in San Jose starting on January 8th.  Hopefully they won’t need me or they’ll call me in for one day and that will be the end of it.  It’s a 45 minute drive to San Jose from where I am depending on the traffic.

And maybe I’ll hear something back on my manuscript back in New York before I college starts up in February again.  I was hoping for a nice Christmas notice on that front but I don’t think it will happen this time.  Oh well.

Take care for now everyone and HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS, A HAPPY HANUKKAH, A MAGICAL SOLSTICE, A SUPER SATURNALIA, A GREAT KWANZAA, and finally A HAPPY AND SAFE NEW YEAR EVERYONE!  I hope I covered everything.
