Bought a couple of Christmas gifts today. Hard to believe it will be here in such a short time. I’m sort of worried about getting the time to get it all done. It seems like all I do is work and write anymore. Gotta get that NaNo book done and then I have to get back to Dario. I know he misses me. I promised to ‘fatten’ up his story and then Liam came in and has shoved Dario into the closet. I sure hope I can convince the Alpha male Count to talk to me again since I took up with the upstart Irish singer. I mean, really, who’d tell a titled millionaire to wait a month for me to give me time to flirt with an Irish Republican Army major?
