This is what snow we had this past week - it had melted continuously and is all gone now. I don't like this snow / no snow thing; I like winter to be winter. But it's beneficial to my heating bill, I have to admit.

Photos are under the cut. This way. :) )

I completely forgot what I wanted to post about because I'm knackered. Work is literally killing me, and I will need to tell my boss next week that if we don't do something I'm gonna burn out within a couple of weeks. I'm sure we'll figure something out, I'll just to survive until then. :)

Today we had big fluffy snowfall for about an hour and it was just beautiful. I took a few photos, I just have to upload them. At least I'll figure out how the Scrapbooks are at LJ and at DW. Right?

Since nothing else comes to mind to say, I'll just thank my Christmas cards. I was reminded to do so by the card I received today from [personal profile] hammil77. Thank you sooooooooooooo much! It gave me a big smile on a day I really neded it. I also would like to thank [personal profile] sagaluthien, [personal profile] poetic_self, and [profile] helineloro for their cards. I hope I didn't leave out anyone, but if I did, I'm really thankful for all of them. Those cards will stay where I can see them for a few more weeks.

I didn't get a beta last time I asked, so I'd like to ask again. Would anyone want to beta for me - in theory for now? But I do have something boiling. ;) Thanks in advance!

We had our first real snow worth talking about today and of course it was a total chaos. Officials always announce how ready they are for snow and they never are. Everybody is just laughing at them as they are explaining on the news how the disaster is not their fault. This year we even have a committee to make up excuses. (Let's not talk about politics anymore.)

Good thing is, we had a snow day at work. I went in anyway, but it was so much easier without people around. I made a serious dent in the piled up stuff I had on my desk.

My paid LJ account expired and I'm not sure I want to expand. I don't know what to do, really; LJ has been my home for so long, but it's becoming more and more unreliable. But I don't want to move either.

My solution is Dreamwidth for now. I imported everything already, and if I don't forget it, I will crosspost from now on. If you have a DW account, find me; I'll gladly "friend" you.

And now, on to replying to comments. Hopefully. If I don't get to yours, I'm sorry. *hugs*

I'm back! Aren't we all happy? Because I surely am. =D

I spent the holidays with family which mostly work, actually. And I want to slap my older sister until she wakes up and thinks of someone other than herself.

Other than that, it was good. I saw The Hobbit twice and I really liked it. I like how it's different from LOTR but still the same; and I can hardly wait to see the next part. It's not slashy for me at all - but it took me some time to realize that it's because of The Hobbit and my absence from LJ that I miss my boys so much.

I'm gonna read around LJ this weekend, but if you posted something important -like fic!- please leave me a comment with a link.

So now, HAPPY NEW YEAR! I missed y'all, guys. *hugs*

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. :/

which is the inflammation of the vocal box. I shouldn't be speaking, but I can't help it at work. :/

I saw two doctors yesterday, the throat specialist who told me about my vocal chords, and a pulmonologist who said I'm completely healthy when it comes to her expertise. Took me a day to accomplish this and got a nice fever in return. But then fever isn't far these days, anyway, it's just lurking right under my skin, even now. Ugh. But I got another set of antibiotics, just took the second pill; and I have more trust in it than the previous set. We'll see, though.

I also caved in and hired a cleaning lady. My place is still awful, and while I will feel completely mortified while she is here, the result is worth it. Of course I could use the money elsewhere but I won't think about that.

Then I will have to seriously start preparing for Christmas. YAY! =D

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.)

I hope you had a fun Halloween - those of you who could. You on the East Coast are always in my thoughts. *hugs*

I missed Halloween this year but it doesn't really come naturally to me anyway. It would've been great to play though... So did you guys do something to celebrate?

I'm still sick, btw. This is my 7th week of it, the first day I missed at work was September 28. Can you imagine? But I decided that between specialists' appointments and doctor's visits, I am reclaiming my life. I'm fed up with not being able to do anything. So... we'll see. But Christmas is nearing, and that always cheers me up.

Also, let me thank you for your get well wishes to my last post; it was a great read when I was really down. You guys are awesome!

[livejournal.com profile] sagaluthien, I got your care package and it's wonderful! I can't tell you how much I appreciated it when I got it last week. (Then we went to visit my mum and I couldn't thank you properly, but now I can. *hugshugshugs*)

So how are you guys? What's happening in the world of LOTR and The Hobbit and the actors? I'm writing again for Christmas, I hope I find my inspirations and the proper pen / keyboard. Wish me luck, eh? =D

So this is me, now. Hugs and kisses to everyone!
