Yes, being busy does make time move more quickly than most want. I was surprised by how little I updated my typecasts in December. November, I had an excuse by December? Barely any updates and no major progess on my novel, ugh!I have been keeping busy writing though, just not as much as I could...it seems sometimes when I have the choice of just laying down and falling asleep, with not other responsibilities, I do just that and waste away!
Nice post, happy new year. Listen to as many grandparent stories as you can! I wish I had my great grandmother back, I miss her very much. And best of luck buying a house.
