Justice readers, please forgive me. It's been crazytimes at work recently and I just got back from a business trip. However, I will be posting a new chapter of Justice this coming weekend on Saturday the 21st. Last weekend I was trying to work on Driven, but there were just too many damn interruptions. But it's on my mind to get that done too, whenever I get a chance. Which will not be on any of the work days remaining to this week. I now have five days worth of work to complete in three.

I'm stressing about taxes. We have until April 30th in Canada. I sort of started, but there's a lot more to do.

Update: In the middle of my stressy day, I went out and bought a new dress. It's a knee length, wraparound style in shades of pink and beige. It's very flattering on me and can be worn for work with a suit jacket on top, but would also be perfect for parties! Yay, I love it.

Yay! I'm looking forward to the new chapter! But please, don't stress yourself! :)

Thank you! I'm trying very hard not to stress myself. Getting enough sleep is key.

Anyway, the chapter is already done and with the betas, so it will definitely be up this weekend.

That's great! I can't wait to see how the story is going on :D

The dress sounds fabulous and I totally identify with the concept of retail theraphy.

Yes, it's amazing how helpful that can be, isn't it? My dress was on sale, too!

Hi there, sorry to read about the deadline for your taxes, appreciate it can be hell.

On a good note, you treated yourself to something nice - all for retail therapy to alleviate stress and to get the mind in the right place to or in some cases (as in yours) raise a smile.

This weekend (especially Saturday/Sunday) is giving me something to smile about!!!!

Re: **Chin up - it will be ok!**

Thanks, FM! I'm not usually much of a shopper-- I'm more likely to use 'chocolate therapy'-- but there are times when one can justify it. During my last two business trips, I realized I was surrounded by people wearing very nice work clothes, and I felt kind of drab and under-fashionable in their midst. I've decided to revamp my image and get some sharper outfits so that I can feel more confident. I've been in a new career since July and my usual West Coast casual-business attire isn't cutting it anymore.

I'm wearing my new dress today and I feel great! Sometimes I can even stop worrying about my taxes for up to ten minutes at a time.

I expect to work most of the weekend, but there will definitely be time to post, and if I'm lucky, maybe even an hour or two of writing time!

Thanks again.

Retail Therapy!!

Highly recommended by your pal Moon.

Sigh, it must be nice to be fashionable. I am either is hospital scrubs or pjs, which, if you think about it, are really the same thing.

Don't stress too much, Brit, I will be happy with either driven or Justice, whenever you can get to 'em.

Gaaah! *sends good thoughts and dark chocolate-covered espresso beans*

Sounds lovely! I love wraparound dresses; very flattering!

It is lovely! I've never bought a wraparound dress before, and to tell you the truth, I don't think I even would have lifted this dress off the rack for a closer look, but for the fact that I found myself in the capable hands of a young saleswoman who insisted I try it. She sort of sized me up and then just selected stuff for me. I have to say that I think she was extremely good at her job. She brought me a couple more dresses that I thought were very classy, but unfortunately, although they fit my lower half, they didn't fit my upper half. They were designed for a different type of body from the one I have.

Hooray! You're Safe and Sound!

I was wondering how you were doing and I was getting worried about why I haven't seen you in so long. Now I know and I don't feel so antsy about not hearing from you in so long. Thanks for letting us know what has been going on.

I got Lady Feather to beta for me and I'm so happy to have her. She's so great to take time out of her busy schedule when she can to help me out. I have three chapters already up and I'm struggling to get more out. I've been stuck with distractions too lately.

So anyway, glad you're back safe and sound. I really mean it. Talk to you soon.

Re: Hooray! You're Safe and Sound!

Hi Stalianna,

Thanks for being worried about me. I should have posted sooner just to let everyone know I was still alive.

Congratulations on getting the_ladyfeather to help you. She's a great beta with a good eye for sorting the wheat from the chaff, and she makes funny comments to boot.

I'm so glad it's Friday. I'm still not caught up, though. And now our Internet has died at home, and a technician can't come until Monday! I'm obviously going to have to post my chapter from work.

Good luck with overcoming the distractions!

Re: Hooray! You're Safe and Sound!

Hooray for Friday. I get to sleep in tomorrow and not have to wake up at 6 am to take my 7 year old to school.

Posting a stroy from work? Now that will be interesting. It sucks donkey balls that you can't get service until Monday. I'd go crazy too and I don't have a job where I can mooch off of thier internet like that.

I would say my kids are the main distractions but it's not just them. I feel like I have too many of them. But it's nice that I can get things down when I'm able to.

I'm eager but not pushing to see the next chapter of your story. I've become in an artsy mood lately and now I feel like taking a chance and drawing a smut pic of Dee and Ryo XD. I feel so naughty ;p

Talk to you soon.

Yay for the new chapter! No need for apologies, Brit.
I am with you on the whole filing the tax-returns issue. It is one of those things that I like to complain about. This time, I managed to post everything 2 days before the deadline. And retail therapy works - especially more so, if you end up with a perfect dress on sale! :)
