They say that if you want to give the higher powers a good laugh, tell them your plans.
Needless to say things have been even more interesting; between an increase in work demands, the demands of the up coming holiday & the usual life requirements housing a family involves I've been left with little time/personal energy (mental or physical, take your pick) to run any games. Unfortunately, things are not going to ease up in the next few weeks.
I found out today that a friend of mine committed suicide this past weekend. For the 10+ years I've known her, she always struggled with depression and anxiety with a combination of medication & therapies, and in the last few months I knew she'd had some seriously huge changes in her life that were making those problems worse. I had no clue things had gotten as bad as they did, and wish I'd have been able to keep in better touch with her but things are just the way they are unfortunately. I realize I'm rambling a bit, sorry for that, but I'm still in a bit of shock over it.
That said I'm going to put the game on hold until after New Years.
I just need some time to manage my life, and the things I'm feeling at the moment. Thanks to all for being understanding.
Happy holidays to everyone, see you in the New Year.
