Possess by gretchen mcneil4 A Few Updates

My life has been crazy lately, so I haven’t been able to visit your lovely blogs and leave little love notes. My best friend Yv and her husband Paul visited from Australia for two weeks. I took a few days off during Thanksgiving week to play tour guide. Too bad I had to work. I would’ve loved to take them out every day. My super friends Maiko and Lena helped take my guests around, though, and their own friends came to the rescue as well, so they were never bored during their stay.

I hadn’t seen Yv in 7 years, so we had way too much fun catching up. This meant a lot of late nights and coming into work like a zombie. It was so worth it though!

Although my guests have left, the craziness of my schedule still hasn’t ebbed. Tomorrow, December 1st, I’ll be flying off to Japan for the first time. I’m so excited, and so NOT ready! This whole week at work has been a nightmare, as I have to rush everything and finish all my month end reports in two days, instead of the usual one week.  I haven’t even packed for the trip yet—(which is saying something, since I’m usually packed for a trip a week before.)

I’ll be in Japan for 10 days soaking up the sights before I return home to tons of chores and paperwork and the usual Holiday rush.

–Which is why I’ll be taking a bloggy break this December.

I’ll announce the winner of my Possess Giveaway on December 3rd, though, so drop by to see if you’ve won.

That’s it for now. Congrats to all of you who survived Nanowrimo! See you when I get back!
