Hate Mail to Chapter 2

So You Don’t Know Me, But…

Dear Chapter 2,

I have lived with you for a couple of months now.  You have haunted my dreams (nightmares, really) and kept me up at night.  I basically HATE You!

I think it was somewhere around the writing of Chapter 15 that I started to realize you may not “fit.”  But I kept writing…  I continued to force myself to ignore your presence until I typed “The End” at the completion of my first draft.  I told myself that I would take care of you then.

I’m (Finally) Back!!!

Did you miss me???  That’s okay, I didn’t miss you either.

 (You’re  right, I’m lying… I totally did!  How’d you know?)

I really wish I could say I was away exploring Middle Earth or saving muggles.  Unfortunately, the closest I came to doing either was a statement about wanting to watch Hobbit movies and actually watching years 1-6 of Harry’s adventures at Hogwarts.

You would think I would have written quite a bit while not on here…  And you would be wrong.

I also didn’t get much knitting done on the TARDIS.  I did, however, manage to start a whole new project…  new Christmas stockings for the girls (will post pics tomorrow)!!!

Let’s see… what other unproductive thing did I do???

OH YEAH!!!  I went bowling with my girls and sister.   I pretty much SUCK at bowling now.  Not that I was ever all that great…  “back in the day” (I cannot use that phrase without hearing Ahmad singing in my head.)  I had high hopes of hitting 200.  Apparently, I now have to be happy (and excited) to break 100.  (It’s sad, I know!  Especially since my little sister totally kicked my butt the last game!  Embarrassing.  *Sigh*)

About the only productive thing I did manage to do while I was away was have a Guild Wars 2 day with my girls.  We made new Sylvari and leveled to 16. (Productive is a relative term, right?)  Since we’re still pretty new to GW2, I have no idea if this is a feat to actually be proud of or not… but we were pretty impressed with ourselves!

(Side note:  If you’re going to waste an entire day of your life living in an online world… I suggest being proud of ANY achievements made while in fictional form.  It will definitely help to ease and/or eliminate any guilt you may feel later about not achieving things in the less awesome, sometimes depressing real world.)

So what about you guys??  What have you been up to the last week???  What all have I missed in the world of blogs??  Send me links to check out!!!

(I’m feeling a little like I left the planet for a week instead of leaving the internet — Same difference though, I guess.)

UPDATE:  I just checked my spam…  There are a TON of comments in there.  I’m trying to go through it now and see what all I’ve missed, but I don’t reply please don’t take it personally.  It looks like most of what was sent over the last week went there.  I’m not sure why.  😦
