Welcome: New Blog Site

First of all, welcome, everyone, to the new site for tag’s Haven. I’d like to thank you all for following me here. Please, feel free to subscribe to my posts – the link is in the sidebar, just under my recent posts.

For those who are new and have followed a link here, Be Welcome! This is the blog where I talk about my life in general, moan and vent about the weather, and pre-publish my fanfic to get comments on it in order to improve it further before it goes to FFNet and tag’s Library for the wide world to see. 😉 (If you want to see the fanfic I’ve put up, links to all of it are available through the Fanfic page, as well as a bit of a summary.)

Over the next little while I’m going to be wandering around the ‘Net, changing the URLs of my blog everywhere I’ve put it up. But there is news, for anyone interested… see below. (Also, question re fic. Sorry, RK fans, not quite ready for updates yet, but have been reviewing and doing a bit more writing….)

Continue for more about me, my family, and fic….

(Long Overdue) Update

First of all, I apologize for the long (very long) delay in updating this LJ, not to mention the dearth of updates for several months before the last post. RL took over, in a rather unpleasant fashion, and this was one of the results.

So, a few different updates (long ones!)….

First of all, the major reason behind things:

Health Update: Depression and Nerve Damage (Unable to Walk = No Fun!)

General (Health) Update…

Well, just found out the cause of the dizzy spells (and possibly the ridiculous absentmindedness and apathetic attitude I’ve been demonstrating) from the past month and a half.

Low iron.

*sigh*

Oh well. At least now I can do something about it. And hopefully get myself back into the swing of things, and get working on my writing, and all the rest of that stuff that I’m really meant to be doing because I have obligations to fulfill… (voluntary obligations, but definitely things I should be doing – like communicating with my friends!).

Zoe Pics! & General Ramble

Well, I finally got some pics of my niece uploaded from my trip to Halifax. A nice selection, I think… I’m having trouble putting titles and descriptions on, but there are three of Zoë and I, one of the proud mommy (being silly! *G*) and Zoë, and the rest are simply of Zoë alone. Zoë Gallery #1.

As for the rest of things…

Went to the doctor Tuesday morning about my near-constant dizzy spells. My blood pressure was 100/60 (which is low-ish – last time it was checked it was 110/70), and I had about 5 vials of blood taken for various tests, including glucose and iron levels. I should hopefully get some idea of the results soon…

Had my Annual Performance Evaluation Wednesday morning, and it was quite pleasant, actually. My supervisor generally approves of what I do, so I’m quite happy about that.

And as of last night at work, the kids are gone for the next two and a half weeks… Ah, blessed quiet! *g* No having to open outside doors at 5am until January! Yay! *g*

Will see about getting RuroBatt/Edge of the Blade Chp. 3.3 out later today…

Update: Life, the Universe, and Everything

Well, it’s been a while since my last post here; been rather busy with various things, including visiting my sister and new niece in Halifax (went from Nov. 30 to Dec. 4). I’ll be putting up some pictures in a new gallery – probably this weekend, I expect.

Work is going well, though I must admit I can’t wait until next Thursday (last day of school until the second week of January – Yay!). Having a bit of a problem with strange dizzy spells, but they aren’t really interfering with work and I’m going to see the doctor about them next week.

In terms of writing… well, I haven’t done much. It seems the November blahs waited until after I came back from visiting Sonja and Zoë to pop up, and I’ve been pretty apathetic about it since. (It doesn’t help that I’ve been devouring a new fandom’s worth of fics, either…) However, I do plan to get back in the groove either today or tonight at work. And good news for those waiting for new parts to Edge of the Blade/RuroBatt and RuroSen: A Strange Partnership; I plan to post Chp. 2 of the latter by this weekend, and Chp. 3.3 of the former at some point next week.

Plus, I’ve got another new RK fic on the go – this one based (with permission – in fact, she’s beta-reading it for me, as usual) on an idea of Vathara’s. Major AU; it’s an science fiction scenario that has some… interesting elements to it. Including the fact that Saitô and Kenshin were on the same side in the war they fought… So far, I have the prologue, Chp. 1, and the beginnings of Chp. 2 written. Do people want me to start posting it now, or would you prefer to wait until I’ve got more done?

Other than that, I’ve seen Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and must say that it’s definitely a better quality movie than Prisoner of Azkaban was; while they did cut out scenes from the book, of course (the movie being over 2-1/2 hrs. long as it is), they managed to hit all the important parts. (Unlike PoA, which didn’t even establish the identities of the Marauders or what Sirius did to Snape with respect to Remus! Those are some of the most important parts of the book! Sorry, that just ticks me off, that they left that out…)

And on Thursday, going to see Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe with my adopted aunt. Looking forward to it; that was one of my favourites as a child.

Later, all!
