Time flies

Author: Jax Cassidy // Category: , , ,
I've been horrible about posting regularly. I really can't believe Christmas is just around the corner and I still need to send out my holiday cards...will do it first thing tomorrow--check! I know, it's been on my 'to do' list for weeks now but I'm noticing the list has grown longer with each passing day. No way am I feeling sorry for myself. I need to re-organize my life but I know things really won't settle down until 2010. Sigh. It's fine, I'm adapting.

I've been doing a lot of cooking lately. Mostly traditional Vietnamese cuisine and it's been fun. I think my family never realized I knew how to cook. Yes, I'm a bit spoiled in the family because mom always cooked for me. I need to start documenting the recipes because I don't know what I'd do if she wasn't around anymore. I've got a project I'm working on that I hope to give to all my sisters next holiday...well, I've got another writing session planned on Saturday and this time I am going to really kick out some words. I'd say the last few get together meetings have been a little too relaxed so from this point on I'm coming in with a working mindset.

My agent sent me a lovely card and it made me all mushy inside. She is the best!!!! She always know what to say to make me feel better. I gush about her all the time but who doesn't love an agent that really really cares about her authors. That's gold to me! :) Now, if only I can produce more proposals and faster. I have a feeling my work schedule will shift into overdrive next year...I just believe that next year will be MY YEAR! It better not let me down!

I've got darn Christmas Carols running around my head. I need to catch some zzzzzz's--still can't seem to have a regular nights sleep but I'm sure it will happen some day.

I never send Christmas cards. Too much work! I think you should skip it. People will understand.

I disagree - but I love any type of mail that isn't bills. Heck - I get excited over netflix.

One of my chums does January cards, its really nice to get a card after all the hoopla is over too.

I'm with you December.

This is a first time in a long while since I've sent Christmas cards. I always feel better because I want my friends to know I'm thinking of them. As I mentioned, those sweet words do mean a lot when you're going through a tough time.

I just got my cards out yesterday :) I do the 'family photo' card b/c I'm not personalizing 35 different cards, lol. I love getting them from my friends across the country too :)

More proposals and faster? Are you trying to kill yourself?

I'm missing some authentic Vietnamese cuisine right now. I think your post is making my mouth water.

Happy Holidays, Jax! Thinking of you and sending warm wishes!

(This year was the first time I sent out holiday cards without a picture - I just couldn't get my act together. Oh well. Sometimes you've got to cut yourself some slack, right?)

I really cut back on the cards this year - too much to do. What a great idea about documenting family recipes! I think I will do that with my Mom's recipes, too. Have a wonderful Christmas!

My cards are as out as they are gong to be and for all my lovely on line friends, Jack and I did this fun Jib Jab card here.


I love your 2010 outlook. Yep it will be your year!
