Re: Absences
To all those within my games. I am heading out tomorrow ( being Friday ) over to Vancouver to spend the weekend to my aunts house, and therefore will not be online. Havent seen her in almost 2 years. I will catch up with everything on Monday.

Think this is pretty much my last trip to Xmas when, while I will not be going away, it will be busy.

Cheers !

See you all Monday !

Re: Absences
Greetings all

Dec 1st is upon us, and with that, the holiday season. Normally I update either every 3 days or once a week, pending the game. Due to the holiday season, and everyone out with family and friends celebrating, I understand that things will slow down. I will post when necessary, but allow you all the time needed during the month of December. I am not saying, Don't post, I just don't want you to feel pressured with RPol and Having to keep your posts up

Come January 2nd, I will be back to the Normal posting rate of whichever game you are in.

Hope everyone enjoys their festive season ! Thanks SO much for being a part of my game this year !

Re: Absences
Alright everyone.

Just to let you all know. Your DM, being me, is getting married on June 15th. The next few weeks are going to be crazy busy for me prior to the wedding, but I will try and post as often as I can.

Then we will be away on our honeymoon from the 16 - 21  ( only a few days as I will have 18 year old dogs that we are taking with us, as I dont want to leave them for long )

I suspect the weekend of the 22 and 23rd will be when I catch up on things and we return to normal.

Thanks !

Re: Absences
Greetings to all my players !

December 1st is upon us and I know Xmas is a busy time of year for everyone, so for the month of December, the game is switching to a post when you can, I know your busy mode.

I myself know I am going to be busy as I thought to myself, I know what I will give mom for Xmas, I will stay late at work and scan all her pictures of us growing up and digitize them. Ha ha ha ha. I am averaging about 80 / hour for scanning, and thats NOT cropping, straightening or colorizing / Editing. I have scanned 600, ( And edited 350 ) and estimated I have another, oooh, perhaps 2000 to scan ( At least ), and before Xmas ( Sigh )  Then I will be picking some and putting them to video

So alas,Rpol will be a secondary priority until I get that done. Sorry

I will still try and post in my spare time, just wanted you all to know, I have not left the game and will be back in full force in Jan !

Your GM !

Merry Xmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Yule ALL !

Re: Absences
Sorry everyone.

All my games are on hold for a few weeks, due to the loss of my 19 year old little girl dog today. Havent felt like writing, due to her being sick, and trying to get her to eat, but I have been unsuccessful in this and so in a few hours,  I will be taking her to the vet for her final visit. I have spent the weekend cuddling instead of writing.


Also next Monday I go on holidays from the 21 - 28th.

Games will resume then.

Again, sorry everyone, but I promise I will catch up then !

Re: Absences
Alright,

Xmas is crazy, and I know thats pretty much the case for everyone. The last week for me has been nuts, working full time, then baked close to 20 dozen cookies. On top of two xmas parties already, and another 4 to go.

I will try to keep up, but will probably resume again ( like last year ) after Xmas.

Hope everyone has a great Xmas ! Yule and Hanukkah.

Re: Absences
Just an update

Hope you all are having a fantastic Holiday month.

Court date for the Cat is Jan 13 2016, though she is denying having my cat. Been heading out there a couple times a week to try and find her, but as she was feral whens he moved into my house, I suspect she has reverted and we arent going to.

Still working two jobs, with longer hours then I like. We brought in a " student " to help at the dog shop, with me having hopes that he could stay, but dog grooming is an art, and we are spending more time babysitting, so its sinking more time then normal.

My one night off has been filled with getting court papers, hunting for my cat, trying to keep my puppies entertained, and ultimately, just veging on the couch, wishing my house would sell so I could downsize hours

I just had to fix my cars Catalytic converter to the tune of very expensive ( 980 for just the part ) and now a rock just broke my windshield. Sigh, but thats not getting fixed till the summer, thats just the way it is.

On a positive note, the puppies are fantastic, though I miss my old dogs too. the German Sheppard from the upstairs tenant, love the pups so she comes down to play most days. I started swimming before work three days a week ( more time gone ) and in Jan have been asked to teach a dance through the ages dance class ( SCA dancers at war with SCA currently, apparently. I have been dreaming of selling my house and moving to the other side of the country where no one can find me, and where I can buy a house outright, and have time again....

Ah well, games still on hold until further notice, and while I would like to say I will try, my busy life doesnt look likes its going to slow until I sell this house. Move to a new one, move the grooming shop into it ( where I will have a computer while waiting for customers to pick up !!! that I can write on ) and no driving time, and then drop my second job, once we look at the budget.

Wishing you all well,and the best holidays !!

Hugs

Re: Absences
Ok all !

Life has really been a roller coaster this past few years and I'm sorry, I have been absent and bad at even checking in. I really miss my writing and my hope, is that come Mid Sept, I will be starting again. I will give you a brief rundown of what my life has been, just to help you understand.

Well, as you all know, I was busy planning a wedding and indeed get married. Then all hell broke loose. Apparently I married a very self absorbed spoiled brat, but I didn't see it and things just escalated in a downward Spiral. He made me feel guilty when I wrote, he made me feel guilty when I hung with friends, or if he joined us, then He would leave before we were done, forcing me to. All he did was play his precious Vid games, while I managed everything else and I better not dare disturb that, or would get snapped at, or glared at.

I lost Gidget my old lady Dog in July, and Gadget a year later, in May, acquiring two puppies, one of which was to be his, but alas, he neglected it and so it became mine, along with his Bird.  So have two young, overly energetic pups turning 2 this year.

In Sept 2015, some stupid crazy cow stole my cat, claiming it was hers, and so I went to the police, as I had pics and witnesses. The police could apparently do nothing, and in order to get my cat back, had to take her to court. ( which takes forever apparently )

Come Jan, 2016, my Darling husband, moved in a nightmare of a trollop into MY house, into MY garage, WITHOUT asking me. I came home and she was in MY bed, in MY PJ's, and so essentially, things went downhill FAST there. That nightmare lived with us for 6 weeks, 6 week of hell, of which I lived in terror, she was going to burn my house down ( cannot eve begin to describe, the filthy, disgusting slob of a nightmare she was, she left ovens going, doors wide open in the winter, the bath water running for hours on HOT! Poisened my dogs, the garage stunk so bad, it burned your lungs to enter it. Destroyed my towels, bedding and other things and cause enough of a hydro spike, we were flagged for having a grow op )

She moved out Mar 1, after much fighting with my husband. A week Later, he moved in a cat killing German Sheppard without asking. I pretty much lost it as he had just wasted all the courts time, the lawyers times, cause now I couldn't bring my cat back ( court date was Apr 1 )

Also, it was agreed that I would list my house, Apr 1, and sell it so we could by a house together ( boy, was I stupid ) and thats NOW not happening

Anyhow, I freaked on him a week after that Sheppard moved in, pissing all over my house, and destroying my puppies toys. He packed his bags and moved out while I was at work the next day, told me via text, and I haven't heard from him since. Hes got me on block and ignore, saying I was the unreasonable one. Left all his crap here for me to deal with too cause " he didnt want to "

I have come to realize in the 12 weeks he has been gone, that He was really despicable and nasty and I was Sooo blind to it.  I have so much more peace now, though I would love to smash his head in with a cast iron frying pan !

Now, my listed house did sell in 2 days !!! ( akk ) and so I have to be out July 15th. I will be floating for 17 days with no computer. I move into my New place I bought Aug 3, but will be busy painting, and unpacking and organizing it. Come Last week in Aug, first week Sept, its Faerieworlds, then after that, I have a Friend from Denmark visiting for a week.

Now, thats a LONG post to say I really miss my writing, and I am going to be reevaluating my life, setting myself back on course for me and my pups, and get back to it. ( But Not till Sept !! )

So for any who are still here. I know its been an Age, I thank you, and will look at restarting this fall !!

Hugs, and cheers to all. Hopefully your life was Not as chaotic as mine has been
