christmas tree with gifts

I'm leaving soon to see my mom (she just had cataract surgery) and will be back in the new year - just as usual. See you again in 2013! *hugshugshugs*

  Merry Christmas to you all, and a Happy New Year!

WARNING: self-pimping to follow.

If you feel like re-reading a Christmas story, or never read Snowed In before, I will bravely recommend it. Here is the link to all chapters, and the story isn't locked.

Other than this, I'm insanely busy. I feel very unprepared for Christmas, too. But I can hardly wait, nonetheless. :)

My Christmas cards turned out awesome, let me tell you. [livejournal.com profile] gypsyluv I still would like to ask you to PM me your current address, I think I lost it. And if you haven't asked for one yet but would like to receive one, let me know.

On that note, [livejournal.com profile] nverland, I got your card, thank you very much. I don't really expect to receive a lot more since I wasn't around when the sign-up posts went up. Oh well... :)

And I feel woefully unprepared. But I'm working on it. :)

I'm also getting better. I'm not healthy yet (who mentioned the hundred days flu? you might be right but how I hate it!) but slowly I'm getting better. The cough is not so bad in general but when I have bad fits, it takes away my voice. But that's about it. I'm careful not to catch a cold or another nasty virus now.

I have received my first Christmas card and the award goes to [livejournal.com profile] silvan_lady. =D Thank you!

I saw that [livejournal.com profile] lotr_advent has taken off! I need to finish getting ready for my turn, yeah? Nice thing to do, I hope you'll like it. Also, if you need to buy more gifts, please consider helping and LJ-friend. [livejournal.com profile] sagaluthien does wonderful handicraft and has a few things up for sale. Check them out here.

And this is about it. Do you hate the new update version/thing? I have no idea why they had to change the old. :/

Yet. Just not yet. LOL

It's actually funny, you know? I started to do things every evening after work. Small things, for Christmas, for my apartment - just easy stuff, but things I haven't done for more than a month. Actually I'm into my seventh week of sickness now (I was slightly off with my calculations last time). I still have the cough and the bad voice, but managed to collect some infection in addition. I developed a fever on Thursday afternoon, plus I had to stay late at work which led to a coughing fit that lasted for two hours and gave me splitting headache.

When I saw the doctor, I had insisted to get antibiotics right away, of course. She didn't have a word against it, just asked me basically if I was sure. Sure I was sure. Now the fever is mostly gone, the cough and the bad voice is still here. Funny, yeah?

I don't think I really have anything else to write about, this stupid thing has taken over my life. I'm gonna try to tidy up a bit and maybe clean one room in my extremely dirty apartment. I don't feel like cooking but I will have to. :/

Gosh, I didn't mean to write such a depressing post but by spelling it out it sounds really awful. I'll get better though, I promise.

In the meantime, only 3 people want Christmas cards? That is sure different from how it used to be... (If you just missed my post, it's the one before this.)

Christmas season is starting fully and I feel devastatingly unprepared. I need to write fics! Or at least one! Or something. :(

At least the cards are almost done; I just need a decent cartridge for my printer, and envelopes. If you want to sign up for it, you can still leave your address here. Next up is some baking this Saturday. I just need to pick some recipes and do some shopping - preferably without spending money.

I think I need ideas: what are your favorite Christmas cookie recipes? =D

My life is... interesting at the moment. My mom had her cast taken off, and amazingly started walking right away. Hardly any limping. She only had problems with going downstairs, but she's been practicing on my loft stairs - which, for some reason, drives me nuts. =D Professional help -therapy- is coming on Tuesday.

We have strange small fights, trying to save the other from some tasks, heavy lifting or such. Other than that, we are doing just fine. She will be staying for at least another ten days so my online time is quite limited. I miss it, too. Please forgive me if I hardly comment. I'm reading, I promise, I just don't find the energy to comment very often.

And to end on a cheerier note, here's what I'd like you to do. I mean, if you'd like to receive a (probably) hand-made Christmas card from me, leave your address here. Please, I love to send them out!

If you'd like to receive a card for Christmas from me, please leave here your address - even if you think I know it from past years. (It helps me be organized.) Comments are screened, of course.

I'm going on my regular Christmas hiatus now. I'll be back in the New Year.

Don't do anything I wouldn't do. If anything enormous happens, drop me an email, please. I will have occasional Internet access but not too often, and not for long. (Didn't I say that already? Nevermind.)

I'm leaving you with three manips that I stole shamelessly in previous years. (First two from [livejournal.com profile] seekie , third from Shun_echo.) :)

Two more. )
Merry Christmas and happy New Year! *hugs and kisses*

I might be christmassed out.

It seems to me that I've been working on Christmas-y things all December. Of course it shows: cards are posted, gifts are bought and wrapped, fics are started at least. The Secret Santa one will be finished soon (hopefully), but I paused the other one. I figured a day by day fic that gets a comment a day is not worth killing myself writing it. I will be finishing it, I promise, just not now. :)

As for the cards, the US government's new rule is awesome. Did you know that if you want to mail anything -anything- to America, you have to fill out a customs statement? Even for a Christmas card. I'm sure there are geniuses there whose expertise is safety, but to fill out forms for Christmas cards is ridiculous.

I forgot the rest of what I wanted to post, so there are only pictures left now (all clickables). Hopefully you'll enjoy. :)

A few more. )

ETA: Oh, I remember at least one more thing to write about! I'd like to thank [livejournal.com profile] helineloro, [livejournal.com profile] littlegreenleaf, [livejournal.com profile] pixiereader, and [livejournal.com profile] nverland for the Christmas cards, and [livejournal.com profile] dalehead for the special post card. And a shout-out goes to [livejournal.com profile] sagaluthien for her awesome handmade card. *hugs to all*
