My house is fully decorated. I’ve started holiday sweet making. My town is blasting carols through the speakers downtown. The music started the day of the Christmas Parade (Friday), which we attended! Sadly, the retirement home’s dancing “old ladies” wasn’t in it this year. (One of my favorites.) Before the parade we did the most holiday thing possible… We went to the comic shop, so my daughter could get a picture with Spiderman. What? She’s too old for Santa. At least she’s not too old for Spiderman!
Aside from getting my holiday on, I’ve been working really hard on writing. I’m trying to get ahead, because on Friday I have a doctor’s appointment. Not to mention odds and ends of the holiday will cause their own bumps too. And I did manage to do it! YELLOW is out awaiting a Yay or Nay from my publisher! Cross your fingers for me, okay?

With the holidays going on, I have so much on my plate things are obviously slipping. Like sweeping my floor. Was supposed to do that Friday, but I’ll be doing it as soon as I’m done this post. I’m trying to focus on the important part, which is the holidays and the “core” of my work. Because, I’m not a do all the things gal. I’m not perfect. And that’s absolutely okay.
Any parades in your future/past? Favorite part?
What’s your holiday mantra/philosophy?
