First of all, I would like to apologize for not updating FAKE First Year Together: A New Day for so long. I've been extra busy at work, and with my health it's been one thing after another. April was not a fun month and May is so far not shaping up to be any easier. However, it's not all bad news! Chapter 16 is done and back from the beta. All I need to do is find time to clean it up and then I'll be able to post it. I'll most likely be able to do that before Friday.
Just to tide you over until then, I'll be posting a DRAKE AND JJ ONE-SHOT tomorrow. If I wake up early enough, I'll do it in the morning before work. If not, then we'll have to wait until after 10 pm Pacific time.
And on a totally new subject, as I was neck-deep in chores this weekend, I invented what I thought was a new word: choredom. I was feeling pleased with myself until I googled it and realized I am not the first person that new word ever occurred to. Choredom. It's a miserable state. I wish I were the kind of person who could derive deep satisfaction from reorganizing closets and cleaning my whole domicile, but I'm just not. I cook, I keep the kitchen more or less under control, I food-shop and I do laundry without complaint, but I hate all the other stuff. My husband is actually pretty good about cleaning bathrooms and mopping floors, except he feels compelled to lecture me throughout. Grrr! Just shut up and clean, dammit.
