Because Brenda Would Like An Update...

*wink wink* My friend Brenda Birch, awesome lady and writer extraordinaire, recently blogged about how some of us don't blog very often. I am certainly guilty of that offense. I don't know why it is. I used to be a very consistent blogger. Now I'm...not. I will try to be better.

October came and went, and now it's November, and boy are these holidays sneaking up on me! I can't believe Thanksgiving is in two weeks!! I am not doing NaNo this year, although one of my WIPs would benefit greatly from it. I just can't sit my butt down and write for 2 hours a day. Not without a very good reason! ;-)

Anyway, Football is over, now it's time for BASKETBALL! All three of my boys will be playing in rec and church leagues, and I am looking forward to cheering them on at games!

Given that it's only the second-ish week of November and I want to have all my Christmas decorations up soon, I have had some raised eyebrows. I have Christmas fever. I can't help it. I love sparkling trees crammed with ornaments and ribbon and wrapped presents and lights and the smell of pine (even if it's little pine-scented sticks I hang on my fake trees to make them smell like NOT-fake trees) and egg nog and oldies Christmas music (BING CROSBY and JOHNNY MATHIS for starters), and Christmas cookies and movies like "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Scrooge" (the Albert Finney version, in my opinion the best one), and Holiday parties and all the yummy things we bake and make, and the list goes on. These last two months of the year are my absolute favorite. I want them to last as long as possible! (Because I am one of those weirdos who, after the holiday is over (literally the next day no joke), must obliterate all traces of said holiday and pack up everything and move on.)
