Is anyone still here???

So...I'm still alive!

I can't believe it's been almost two years since I've posted. It kinda feels like a lifetime ago, but then again like it was just yesterday. For anyone who might still be around, I have since gotten married, went through both of my kids moving out, bought a house, started a new career where I just got a big promotion and a $10,000 a year raise, and went through 4 months of hell battling pneumonia over and over while I was sent to a cardiologist and a pulmonologist having test after test to figure out why I wasn't getting any better. Turns out that I just had a really bad strain and my lungs just wouldn't drain. They talked of having to drain my lungs if I didn't get better, but luckily I haven't had a problem since early November so I think I'm finally better. Yes, it's been a crazy ride!

But I am back. I started writing again...4 pages so far of The College Years. I figured I'd just check in to see if anyone ever uses Livejournal anymore. My work is still being posted at Moonshadow so if anyone wants to read it, and I'll understand if you gave up, it will be posted there. If no one is here anymore, I'll just get rid of LJ altogether.

And if anyone is left, please let me know. I miss my QAF world.

Take care,
Meredeth

Hi everyone!

Okay, so I've been quiet lately. I'm sorry, but this wedding is taking it's toll on me. Between that and working two jobs, I haven't had a moment to breathe. I'm hoping that's going to change soon. I have five month until the wedding...which means a lot of the planning is done, thank God. Also, my second job is slowing down some, which means I'm actually going to have two days off a week again. I missed that. One day just isn't enought to do all that needs to be done in life. I was hoping to get some writing done today, but I got bogged down with wedding favors. I don't know why I thought making my own would be more personal...I should have just bought them.

Anyway, the bottom line is I'm still exrememly happy, a little less stressed, and hoping to get back to writing. I just wanted to check in. I'll post as soon as I can put something together!

I really miss the fandom!

Now That You're Here 27/?

Hey everybody, remember me?

Yes, I know I've been MIA way too long. I'm so sorry. Life just kept getting in the way. Nothing new on the house situation, but there is a new development in my love life. I'm getting married! My fiance proposed on August 27th...dropping down on one knee while we were on the boardwalk watching fireworks with thousands of people. He's such a sweet guy. The wedding is October 17th, 2015. Planning is both fun and exhausting. I did this once before, but my mother did a lot of the work. Now it's all me...well, he helps out a lot. I have to say, I've never been happier.

But, despite the crazy, I was able to finish up the next chapter of my story. I'm going to do what I can to write a little bit each week so that my postings are closer together...just don't hate me if the wait is long. I promise I will never disappear without finishing a story. If I ever disappear, it means I'm dead. That's the only thing that would keep me away for good. (And let's hope that doesn't happen...lol.)

Anyway, here is the next chapter. I hope you enjoy it!

An Update!

Hi everyone,

I'm sorry I've been MIA lately. Life here has been crazy. I don't know if you all remember that Superstorm Sandy damaged my house pretty badly and my family had to move out while it was being fixed. Well, the contractor we hired took a third of our money and hasn't done a thing to fix it. We ended up having to put the house up for sale because the insurance money is slowly disappearing because of our living expenses. FEMA stopped helping us in January. Now the contractor is refusing to give us back our money. I've been in touch with our county prosecutor and I'm waiting for charges to be filed. SO many contractors have already been arrested for taking advantage of Sandy victims. I also hired a lawyer who is going to sue the contractor and help us get his license pulled. It's been a difficult few months while all this was happening. With my mother's health bouncing between good and bad, it's just been a lot to handle.

On a lighter note, my ex-boyfriend  came back into my life a few months ago and turned it upside down in a good way. We found a way to work through our problems and are back together...and better then we've ever been. Thank God for that. He's what has been keeping me sane through all the crap.

So, my lack of writing is not due to my desire to leave the fandom and my characters. I've just had a lot going on. The next chapter is almost done and I will get it up as soon as possible. I am going to ask for a little patience from you all though. For the immediate future, I'm going to post every other month until I get settled. We are going to be moving soon...hopefully...to a more accommodating location. I don't know how much time I'm going to have to write until we get settled. I will do my best...I always try for you because I appreciate everyone hanging in there with me and giving me a reason to do what I love. And as I said, the next chapter will be up soon...hopefully in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for listening to me ramble,

Meredeth

The College Years 25/?

Hi everybody!

I know I'm a little late with this. I apologize, but I was busy finishing up my semester and was bogged down with final exams and papers. I'm out for the next four months now...so excited. It was a rough semester and barely did any writing in the last few months. I'm hoping to jump back in now.

Anyway, here it is. Enjoy it!

The College Years 24/?

Hi everyone,

Here's the next chapter of The College Years, just as I promised. My life has been crazy lately so if I haven't replied to your feedback, please be patient. I only have four more weeks until school is out and I can have some free time again. I'm falling really far behind in my writing.

Enjoy!
