Salutations!

Sorry I haven't been around lately. I have been meaning to make a post but just haven't 'felt' up to it. Life isn't bad or anything, but I've been a bit down lately. Not really sure why, maybe because work has been really rough lately... it is what it is.

Still, lots of good things to share! Pics of the kids from our yearly photo shoot we had taken and more below the cut!



First bit of good news, I passed my last class and kept my 4.0!



This was by far the hardest class I've taken to be sure! Teacher was a dream though, and I think that helped get me to the next level.

I had pics taken of the boys for their birthday yearly photos. I have them posted here:

Also a few weeks ago, I got a few playing in the yard with the family... and took a recent pic of myself! It's here:

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10153615367119018.1073741847.608354017&type=1&l=a968de36e6

Nox is taking his first steps! I need to film it, but the camera is never in sight when he does it! LOL! Lucian has been doing well, got him a keyboard and a stand for his tablet since he's taken to enjoying typing out his spelling words! He makes me so proud! =D

Will of course have more pics for Easter this weekend and the boys joint birthday party... need to get invitations made! Oo I suck LOL!

I will be working on an art trade for a DA friend that completed her half of our art trade, so something to look forward to in the future if I can get my head screwed on straight ;)

I hope everyone has been doing well! It's been kind of quiet out in LJ land I've noticed... not like I haven't been contributing to that! :P

Looks like everything is going well for you. I wish I some exciting stuff to share, but I really don't. I do have a week off starting on the 24th. No idea what I'm going to do. I'm definitely going to try and see the new Avengers movie though.

oO Not to be a downer, but PA is kind of lame compared to FL LOL! Sorry. Who knows though, you might meet some cool people that make it fun. It's just way too cold for my tastes out there!

It might be right up your alley then ;) Be mindful of your traffic laws, cops are asshats out there, and some of their laws are a bit ridiculous. (One being you can only travel in the left lane to pass... and if you travel more than a mile in the left lane, you can be ticketed) Not cool.

Yeah...but I Failed when it came to school. Ten hour days (with hubby ALSO running ten hour days) six days a week...something had to give. *sigh* I wish I knew how Superwomen did it *nudges you with a grin*

I'm no superwoman believe me! LOL! And don't worry, you can get back on that horse when you're ready. You two are still adjusting to a lot of new schedule changes, and that can really throw you for a loop. It also helps that Jason is a stay at home dad and the kids are small and don't have as much daily demand to go places like school and what not...

They say things will go back to 'normal' soon.

Great...just as I get used to the awesome paychecks, lol!!

Hubby was too, for the longest. But I'm happy he's working again. Hell...HE'S happy he is working again.

At least the class is free and I can try for it again another time. I'll be shooting them an email soon though. I tried to keep up, but now I'm too far behind to EVER catch up and I know it. I may be stubborn, but I'm not a moron...at least, I don't think I am!! *Grins*

Life happens, I'm sure they'll understand if you need to come back later. Having a chance to take the class will give you a little bit of an edge when you go back for learning the material to.

OT is nice, but it can get to be super absorbing of everything else in life when it drains you and leaves you kind of like a vegetable :P

I'm glad you two seem to be getting along better now. I know you were having turmoil for a bit there.

Very true. And something I have kept in mind as I will be dropping this class. Also, I know what I truly want to do...which can only help!

Gahhhh...you ain't kidding!! I'm still struggling along, but I'm wiped most of the time! *Hands*

We were...high stress for quite a number of years will do that to you.

But we're getting better!

The kids are simply adorable. Those are some great pictures - I love the one with Lucian kissing Nox's head. You're looking great too!

Congrats on the A in the class.

I'm well over due for an update, as well!

The pics look great. Can't believe how big the boys are getting! Also, no idea why I can't "like" any of the individual pics.

Congrats on the grades. Hugs.

Great pics and looking forward to seeing the next lot when you post them. :-)

I haven't been on lj much the last couple of weeks myself, I am having trouble with my internet. I have a terrible connection that is as slow as mud. Ugh, I hate Telstra. :-(

I have been working on some fics but have not really had any time to do very much writing, it just seems to be one thing after another. But hopefully I'll be able finish something soon.

Thanks. Sorry I didn't reply to this sooner; it got a bit lost in my email there.

Sorry for the net issues :/ Not sure what Telstra is?

You know I'm always looking forward to seeing what you write when you get the chance to get it out :)

That's okay.

Telstra used to be called Telecom and it used to be the only phone company in the country before it was opened up to private telecommunication companies. Unfortunately I am stuck with them because the other companies don't service my new flat. Yes, crazy I know. :-(

I have been trying to write but every time I start, the phone rings or someone knocks on the door. *sigh* But I am getting there slowly. :-)

Just finished a short little ficlet, will post it soon. :-)

I am loving the new flat, I have settled in and it's great. I am lucky to have good neighbours as well.

Hopefully I won't have too many interruptions but this is freaking Telstra soooo...

Oh yeah? Who are the stars of said ficlet? :P

Awesome news! I know the other place seemed to be wearing you down. Hope the internet issues end up working themselves out :/ That does suck to be limited in choices like that...

It's a James Bond License To Kill ficlet featuring the big bad Franz Sanchez and his girlfriend Lupe. I always thought that their relationship as awful as it was, was very complicated. I don't usually do het but I rather like these two and the fact that Sanchez was so sexy does help a lot.
I will post as soon as I can but work is hammering me at the moment, which is a good thing. I need the money. :-)

The other house was nice, but it needed so much work doing to it, in the end I just wanted to find another place that didn't need so much upkeep. The unit is perfect and living by myself makes it way easier to look after. :-)

I hate being so limited, I wanted to stay with my old provider but no such luck. Hopefully I might be able to change later on.

Sounds like fun even if I'm not overly familiar with the Bond fandom. I like het, but a lot of people seem not to especially in the fanfic realm. Honestly, I'm just a fan of a believable pairing whether het or slash ;)

Having a smaller place sounds like a step in the right direction for peace of mind for you. I do hope the internet issues work themselves out. *hugs!*

I like het, but I do like slash as well and tend to write more in that fandom although I have written a few het stories in the past.

I am like you, I like believable pairings and pairings that interest me. When I see two characters that work together, whether cannon or not, I like to explore it further. Like Jester and the Indian Princss or Skinner and Scully. (For some reason I never pictured Mulder and Scully together even though it was cannon) :-)

I will post a Geeky Girl review of License To Kill to give the fic more of a frame work. It was not popular when it came out but it has a real cult following now.

I will do it as soon as I can, but I have been given a whole lot of extra hours due to the huge publicity over the Mother's Day Giftorium. We even have a tv morning show coming in to film it on Monday. :-)

Fine, the giftorium was a huge success. My daughter has come to stay for a while
with her two babies. She has split from her partner, he was cheating on her. So things are going to be a little hectic for the next few weeks. On the upside, I get to spend Nana time with my granddaughter and grandson. :-)

Sorry to hear that for her, but happy you get time with the kiddos... silver lining and all :) Was this the daughter married to the military man?

No, it's my youngest daughter. Her partner was always a bit of a dropkick. (bit of Aussie slang there lol) It turned out he was cheating on her with an ex girlfriend.
My eldest, the one that's married to the military dude actually doesn't have kids (although I am hoping.) I am glad she has finally left him, he's immature and verbally abusive so she is better off out of it as far as I am concerned. Hugs.
