Monday, Dec. 3rd

Dear lord and lady.. It has been awhile since I’ve written. I honestly didn’t think that starting up the Haven would take up so much more of my time than I estimated. Sheesh.

In case you’re out of the loop, www.blackswanhaven.org is up and running! And we even have our forum up, at www.blackswanhaven.org/forums. Do the happy dance with me! *dances around like a goof ball*

So, what’s been new on the Pixie donor front?

Not much, really. My vamp has been doing better. She’s finally “eating” healthy, and now knows why I’ve been hitting her upside the proverbial head. The other vamp in my life, the big brother, is doing as well as can be expected, as well. Just spent about half an hour on the phone with him this morning talking about nonsense, like all siblings do. Tons of activity on the donor forum. Only three spambots, but the rest of it? OMG, it’s so exciting. Vamps and donors hashing things out and just, I don’t know… It’s great. I can’t wait til we get as active as our sister forum, the VCMB. We’ll need more moderators by then, but who cares. Finally, people are seeing that we swans don’t just sit idly by, while the vamps have all the fun. We’re a community of our own right, and it’s so much fun!

In my mundane life, it’s been same old, same old. Gas prices are biting me in the butt. Even with 92 cents off a gallon (fuel perk thing from the grocery store), it still cost almost $50 to fill a 17 gallon tank. And we’ll be lucky if that lasts us over a week. Work is doing good. Trying to finagle someone to dress up as Santa for a photo shoot at my store. And the last few nights have been crazy with customers. Where the heck were they during the Halloween season?? And I’ve never seen a store run out of Hershey’s Kisses a whole month before Xmas!

I’m trying to finish making my xmas/yule presents for everyone. Making one last yarn trip tonight, and getting fiberfill to stuff the 20 gagillion dragons I’ve got to finish. Everyone wants dragons, for some odd reason. If I have enough, I’ll get some sculpey to make Slinky a rune set… And to make my partners in crime over at the Haven something. Maybe some more embroidery floss. Goodness graciousness. I wonder if I’m going to be able to get all these done in time for the holidays?!? Ack!

Oh well. I will be on here more, I swear. #sangi and the other things need to stop distracting me. Y’all have a happy holiday season, and I’ll be back in the next few days (I hope)!
