Back from the Trip from Hell

As most folks know, the daughter and I were stranded in NYC during Hurricane Sandy. We'd gone up to see The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway and drool over the exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Art. Only one goal was accomplished. We did get to see Phantom (which was beyond awesome, btw), but the Metro system was shutting down on Sunday and we didn't want to get stranded at the Met so decided to forego the museum. We were scheduled to fly on Monday out of LaGuardia. Yeah, that wasn't happening. Sandy decided to flood LaGuardia with a crap-ton of water and cut their power. Cue a change of airports. We decided to try JFK and managed to fly out on Wednesday, two days after our scheduled return. All in all, however, the trip was lovely and we remained safe, dry, and with power so the only thing we were out was extra money.

While we were gone, There's a Fine Line Chapter 11 posted to Literotica. It was a few days early since I submitted it on the Thursday before we left, but it was either that or be late. Really late with the storm running through. I also posted it to the blog but couldn't figure out how to post links from the phone so I just published the file and left it there. For those who wanted to read it on the blog and aren't subscribed to the story's page, Chapter 11 can be found in THIS direct link.

Now that I'm back and all is well, NaNoWriMo has pounced and I'm brain dead from the stress and travelling. Don't expect the word count to jump any time soon until I have the opportunity to decompress, do the laundry, put away the souvenirs, and generally get back into the groove of things. I really hope I don't accomplish that just as the Thanksgiving holidays roll around and hubby wants us to drive to Oklahoma to spend the holiday with the in-laws. *sighs* Hurrah.
