Never tempt fate

I am never, EVER saying I'm back in business to write. Never. Because that seems to have declared open season on Twisted's ass.

To quote some of the greats, 'WTF BBQ, Batman?!!'

  1. I planned a trip around my hubby's work-travel, and his work travel got completely changed, so plans out the window, had to make new ones. And then had to do it AGAIN.
  2. My kitty got bitten by a rattlesnake just days before we're to leave on our trip (she survived, though, and is currently tormenting my other kitties). Total stress, dealing with that and trying to get ready to go. Tons of money balancing.
  3. We get here and I have an allergic reaction to coffee in the lobby of my hotel, then react AGAIN because I STOOD NEAR A HAY MAZE and some of it BLEW on me. 0.o Seriously, WTF?!

But I'm thinking, it's okay, I just need to survive a few more days and I'll be home. I can just rest and write and enjoy. Just a bit longer.

And then the DAY before I go home, I get in a car accident. T__T

So I'm kind of down and out right now. Stuck in another state (with family, though), waiting to see if my car is reparable or is going to be junked, and kind of incapacitated due to some fun neck stuff I acquired with my joyful car issue. Nothing major serious, no one else was injured, but not easy to move around much at the moment, either. Grrr.

Fate is a big, grumpy PMS bitch, I swear. And she's obviously dating Murphy. They can BITE me.

At least I'm writing along fairly well right now, but editing is a bit harder as I am doing most of my writing lying on my back and typing without looking on my laptop. I get up for short spurts at a time, and I usually spend it playing with the kids rather than editing. :-)

Speaking of, my son is now into making zombie paper dolls. I did not ask him to do this, I swear! He's just awesome that way, same way my daughter was awesome for making chibi felt zombies. Considering they are both so young that they've never even SEEN a zombie movie, this is probably a statement as to how deeply zombies have become part of our cultural heritage in the USA.

...okay, that may be scarier than actual zombies. ^_^
