I have been wanting to post a reply to the many posts here and I'm dimwitted: every single time I've tried to leave a reply, the site won't accept it. I've tried leaving it via LiveJournal, Open I.D., Anonymous, my FFNet address ... I really have tried but failed over and over again.
1) Yes, ARRANGEMENT is being continued. In fact, chapter 65 has been bounced back to TexanLady yesterday and she's adding a bit more and we should have it online very, very shortly. Promise. She has a chapter for FAIR TRADE and NEGOTIATIONS she is working on as well. THE BREEDER, CHOICES AND CONSEQUENCES, WE STAND TOGETHER and LIFE GOES ON are being updated as well. Part of the issue has been that poor SouthernLady23 hasn't had internet for months and the areas we need to host these stories hasn't been created yet. It WILL be.
2) Thank you for all the errors you've been finding, kleannhouse. It's very appreciated and I've corrected every one of them as I get your posts. The problem is that chapters 13 through about chapter 42 are raw. I never beta'd them and I have not gone back in to add to any of them either. You're going to find grammatical errors galore because TexanLady was writing a couple of chapters a WEEK back then and was more intent on getting out content than making it perfect. Someday ...
I'm sorry for the very long delay. For those who know me, you know this delay has been entirely my fault. The death of my mother took me out. She was my axis I orbited around for over more than ten years as I took care of her all that time. I went through what a lot of people experience when a spouse dies. The fate of the house I am living in is up in the air as I try to manage all the expenses alone now. I've a house filled with memories that need to be whittled down and given away, donated or sold. Some items I can't bear to do anything with; my mother's sweater and pocketbook hang from a hook by the front door because I can't handle the finality of touching them right now. I still tell her goodnight every night I climb the stairs to bed, simply because I always did. The holidays were awful for memories that tore at me.
TexanLady has been very understanding of this because it's much of what she went through when her sister and brother-in-law were taken in that texting car accident a few years back. Loved ones die and a part of you dies too. The links are severed and there's no one to connect with the same way again.
I apologize for the long wait all of you have had. I regret those who've moved on and messaged us because by our long delay we've really pressed heavily on your understanding and sympathies. We're going to make an effort to get updates out more timely. Promise.
