Writing, and more importantly: THE CD!!!

Oh how easy it has been not to write for the last week! Yesterday on my lunch break I started getting the itch, though, so I ate fast and found one of the public computers in a corner. I won't get much chance to put anything on paper for the next few days. Tonight is DH's department Christmas party (you should see the oh-so-yummy-and-incredibly-unhealthy Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake I made...), and half of tomorrow morning will probably be spent sleeping off the effects of that, as I'm sure a couple of people will come back to our house with us for more party fun. Tomorrow there's the shopping, then a best bud from grade school is coming in town....so that'll take up the weekend. Maybe I can push DH out the door to the gym in early afternoon and get a couple of hours in. But on to bigger and better news: THE CD IS HERE!! I AM HOLDING IT IN MY HAND !!! {deep breath} Ok, the CD that my choir made - "Love Came Down" - is a Christmas CD. All proceeds are going to St. Thomas on the Gulf in Long Beach, Mississippi. And may I say that it is one awesome CD? They cost $15 for one, or $12.50 apiece for two or more. Don't blame me for the weird pricing scheme. So what's on it you want to know? O Come All Ye Faithful Silent Night/Night of Silence (gorgeous duet w/ two of our teen choir members) Do You Hear What I Hear O Holy Night (solo by....me!) Child of Mary (choral piece, but it starts with a duet that is partly....me!) Lo, How a Rose (has a solo descant part that is....me!) Away in a Manger (unbelievable guitar piece by our choir director) Mary Did You Know (gorgeous solo by our Alto Diva) Joy to the World Let There Be Peace on Earth And a couple of others that I've forgotten. Ok, I'm done showing off now. But I had to get that off my chest, and hubby is getting very tired of hearing about the CD. ("The CD will be here next week!" ...."I may be late Wednesday, cause the CD will be at practice!"... "I'm on my way home, listening to the CD!" ...."I'm home, do you want to hear the CD?!!"....etc.)...

Hi, Debbie Lynn...Congratulations on finishing your NaNoWriMo novel! What did you write about? I can't believe how stressed I was by the time November was winding down, but I finished too. My book needs lots of work, as you can imagine, but it was a great experience just to see how much a person can actually write while under pressure! I took some time to check out your blog today, since you had so nicely done the same for me a while back. I browsed through your pics - my favourite is one taken during the kids' sleepover - all the kids are in the shot (watching t.v., I think), but one little guy is just visible at the bottom of the picture holding up a couple of stuffed animals. I almost clicked on the next picture and then I saw him at the last minute - it gave me a little chuckle! Anyway, here I am writing a novel again. :) Take care. All the best for the holidays.
