Here's hoping you had a magical birthday, even if it is a day late!!
Wishing all the love, peace, and joy of the season to my LJ friends and family! I hope that everyone's dreams and wishes have come true and here's too a fabulous New Year and all the possibilities and adventures it brings! Love to everyone!
Got to love college baseball!! And what a couple of weeks it has been! The Road To Omaha, the new stadium there, and once again, my Gamecocks are National Champions! Kudos to the other teams that made it to Omaha - especially Florida. It was a great series. And we are NUMBER 1!!!!!

Hope all of my friends on LJ that were anywhere near that line of storms are ok! I know I am glad to have my power back and to have escaped with no damage to me or mine. All around my area there are trees down and houses damaged, but the worst we got was the power out til this morning. Will be praying for everyone affected.

AHHHHH! Can't say that was very satisfying at all. This has turned into the month from hell, for sure. I knew that almost shut down of the gubmint would finally catch up to us. It is scary how it only takes one paycheck out of sync to throw things for a loop. I have pared everything back as far as it would pare and still be recognizable. I have put things off or canceled things completely - including a school trip for my son (was just to a theme park, but I felt bad anyway). I was going to start school soon, but that is out now. And I just don't know what to do now. I usually don't write stuff out like this, but I just got to the end of my tether and the hubby is already getting crazy about budget and all. And the catalyst? A yearbook - for my son. They want 40 bucks for a yearbook. Is absolutely ridiculous. GAH! Hopefully, I will get things balanced again, BEFORE we fall off this highwire.

Yep, I really did! I can't believe it either...lol. So I finally got brave and posted a story to Ashwinder! YAY me! I know I have put stuff on my LJ, but there is something so intimidating about putting yourself out there on an archive like that. But, thank you Teddy for your encouragement, along with my friends on here who have read my meager offerings on LJ. I truly appreciate the cheerleading!! Hopefully, this is just the start of more of my plot bunnies fully realized!!

So...my child will be attending her very first High School dance this weekend. I don't recall my dances being such a production, but I guess that would be why MY mother was laughing her arse off at me everytime I turned around and the girl was asking for something else. We have the dress, shoes, handbag, hair doodads, scarf, and NOW she needs hose...thigh highs is what she wants...thigh highs. <headdesk> I DO NOT look forward to the prom. This is a military ball and is not as big a deal as the prom since only JROTC and their dates are involved. I dread the "big" dance!!

It had been a long night. The war against the Dark Lord had been fought and won. Unfortunately, several Death Eaters had escaped to wreak havoc wherever they could. Tonight, after five years, it was over. The raid had killed the LeStrange brothers and their compatriots.
Hermione found her husband in his private study. He was staring steadily into the fire.
"Severus, what are you doing?"
"Retiring my dear, finally retiring."
The former spy turned and smiled at his wife. He took her hand and led her from the room. Alone, the fire raged, flames eating at a silver mask.
