I have been away!  But I think of you often!  Just never seem to have the time to sit down and write out all these ideas in my head!

Quickie update!

The novel:  in editing.  I take it with me and highlight the crap out of it when I'm not at home.  There are many markings.  Much to be done.  Making  myself finish the highlight stage before I allow the rewrite.

Work:  Passed my certification exam and can now answer the phone, "X Pharmacy, this is Becca, pharmacy technician, how can I help you?"  This means I got a little raise and my hours are evening out at last.  I should have a lot more "free" time to use for this computer screen machine thing here.  And you.  (heart!)

Kids:  School is off to a BANG!  I have a 2nd and 4th grader this year.  The youngest turns 8 tomorrow.  Oldest will be 10 in 6 weeks.  Gulp.  They're getting older, and that means I am too.  Alas.

Pandas:  WoW is too much fun and sucking away my time.  Trying to not allow it, but it pulls me back in.

And finally, a fun list to fill out.  I stole this from another blog.  You can steal it too.  DO IT!  So here goes:

Current Books: Hunger Games, reading with both kids.  Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's Stone, the boy is reading to me for his school reading time.  Also starting book 4 in the Game of Thrones series, and dabbling with Sookie Stackhouse and Dexter.  That's all for now.  I think.  Maybe.
Current Playlist:  Soundtracks are the best, of course.  And Call me Maybe, which makes me think of this lovely (and offensive if you are uptight) video, which I share with you now.  This man is made of happy.

Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Coffee.  I have too much coffee.  Also, chocolate.
Current Colors:  Loving the autumnal colors.  This time of year is awesome!
Current Food:  Pumpkin waffles, soup and fresh bread, some warm sweet bread just finished baking...  I love this time of year for food!
Current Drink: Coffee, made in my ever so lovey Cuisinart Grind & Brew, mixed with some fall-ish creamer.  Caramel Macchiato, Pumpkin Spice, Peppermint Mocha, Hazelnut, York Peppermint Patty, or Irish Cream.  Tempted to add some Peppermint Mocha Kaluah or Bailey's in there every now and then, but I usually abstain.  Evening coffee at home before bed, sure, but nothing else.  *puts on halo and adjusts it*
Current Favorite Favorite:  Hot drinks and cold toes with good music and a good book (or game).  Wrap up all snuggly in a blanket and relax.  Teach my daughter to kick my ass at Mancala.
Current Wishlist:  The Harry Potter Wizard Collection Bluray Box Set.  Gosh, why can't I have it?  It's only $350.  Oh god.  No it's not.  That was the original price.  It's up to $599.  Shit.
Current Needs:  I need to get off the computer and go to bed.  And cry myself to sleep because I ruined my chance at the box set I've wanted for 5 years.  
Current Triumph:  I recently passed my Certification test.  So, I am now a Certified Pharmacy Technician.  And have to continue my learning so I can keep it.  Go go continuing education!
Current Bane-of-my-Existence:  Mount Laundry, the unattainable peak one must at least attempt to climb.
Current Indulgence:  Playing a little World of Warcraft.  I can't help myself.  Pandas are too cute!!  
Current Mood:  Bummed.  Stupid box set.  I hate you.
Current #1 Blessing:  Being able to spend more time with my kids and feel like I'm really getting the "mom" thing covered.  Felt like I was working too much for a while there.  And I was.  This is a better balance.
Current Outfit:  Half assed changed into jammies bit.  Hot pink jammie pants, my orange top from today, slippers, and my grey hoodie because it's getting cold out there.
Current Link:  Well, maybe if I cant have the box set, I can get myself the regular BluRay set and get myself something shiny from these lovely people...
Current Quote:  "Damn, it, Bobby!"

Current Photo:  We've been spending our evenings together.  My son reads at least one chapter of Harry Potter to us (to satisfy his reading requirement for school), and my daughter and I play games.  This is from last night.  We're about half way through Sorcerer's Stone.

And with that, I bid you all good night.  And may the snitch be ever in your favor.  Wait, no, that's not right...   ;)
