You Are Eggnog
Your holiday personality is indulgent.
The holidays are when you enjoy your favorite treats without abandon.
And while you're a bit greedy for your favorite goodies, you aren't selfish.
You're the type who makes a whole bunch of holiday treats and gives them to everyone you know.
I have to admit, this NaNo has been a good experience, both as a writer and as an ML. I've hopefully learned from my mistakes, and I have the basis for a decent piece of children's/young adult fiction to work with during this next year.
There's still time to finish and win, those of you who are near the end. And for those of you who didn't or can't, there's next year. Please consider giving back to NaNo, even a little bit, by using GoodSearch, or by donating something. I'm going to check the bank balance and see what I can give... won't be much, but I've been given something valuable this year and it's only fair that I give back.
I still have the TGIO party for Tuesday, then it's over for the year.

On other fronts, I'm less than 2000 words to the goal of 50K. The story won't be finished, but I want to write the ending, at least in these 2000 words. I can go back and finish the rest - there's a lot of stuff I skipped over - but getting the ending down will make it feel finished. I have a write-in today, but I'm going to try and do as much as I can before then.
As for Boy #2, he stayed home from school yesterday, getting back into the swing of eating. I now suspect that it was some bad milk that made him sick; the Girl complained about it yesterday morning. The date was good, but the milk wasn't and I know he drank some with his cookies on Thursday evening. Better that than a bug going around the household.
Baked pumpkin chocolate chip muffins last night. Just as good as before. I'm taking some with me to the write-in as treats.
Man, I am sleepy! Might be wise for me to take a nap... or finish my coffee.
ETA: This one is for my fellow Thunderbirds fans: FF.net has finally added a Thunderbirds section to Movies. I've moved The White Winds over there.

Decided to check out Rain's domain and see what interesting things she had hidden in there and came across her LJ and her hero type. Took the test myself (signing up for the site in the interim) and this is what came up for me.

I hope this shows up the way it's supposed to when I update the journal. But I thought that the test was a lot of fun and yes, I am a wizard. I fit the description very well. And I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad one!
Also heard from my dad and for the first time found out that they are flying here on the 9th and will drive to Florida to meet the cruise ship on the 12th then drive back here for the 19th and stay for a whole week! Woo Hoo! I have really missed having my parents live nearby. It will be nice to see them, and my sister and BIL, too. But it doesn't give me much time to clean my house!
