For every good day, there’s a bad. That just seems to be the way things are for me right now. Today was a bad day. It wasn’t bad in a horrific way or anything. Just in a everything-I-thought-I-had-fixed-broke way.

The hot water works in the house. Everywhere but for the laundry machine. So no clean clothes until the plumber comes Wednesday.

My computer was working fine. Then I tried to beta test Mythos, and it totally freaked out. Three hours later, I’m still working on fixing it.

The car we bought? Working fine. But Maine has this thing they call an excise tax that you have to pay on cars. Maybe they have this all over the place. I don’t know. All I know is that when I had my old ’96 Pontiac, I didn’t have to pay this much. $100 vs. $500? That’s a big unexpected difference. Not good.

So it hasn’t been a great day. But still, some good things have happened. Tomas wrote his letter to Santa Claus today. He wants two sleds (because he has a Mom and Dad, he says), a wooden Santa toy like the one I have, a snowman and a toy tricycle (not a real one–one that he can pretend to have his toys ride on). So there you have it. Very cute.

Also, my good friend Brandon Sanderson was allowed to officially announce the fact that he’ll be writing the twelfth and final book of Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time series. This is huge news for Brandon, and I’m very excited for him. If you don’t know who he is, head over to his website to check him out. He’s on LiveJournal, too. Username mistborn. I’d link it, but I’m on a Mac running Safari (see comment above re: Computer Broken), and linking isn’t working for me right now.

  1. What’s your address??
    Bryce. Ted was going to call to find this out, but that time difference makes things tricky. We have a card to send you guys for Christmas, but no current address. When you get the chance, will you email it to me?
