Wish I could find it 'cuz its starting to to rain again now...
"'Cuz we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute
Where's my CD starring
Carols at the spinet?"
So it's been crazy the past week or so, trying to get shopping done after work in preparation for my parents' visit this weekend. We are having "four Christmases" as my son says, since we are getting together with different parts of our family on different weekends, and also exchanged gifts with my mother-in-law at Thanksgiving. My mom and dad are going to take all the family gifts back with them, so I need to have them wrapped and ready.
It's actually a good thing that I'm getting all this stuff done early. Well, I guess it's not technically "early" any more. But it *feels* early. I'm just not mentally ready for Christmas, because I haven't really had time to stop and think about it. My mom, who retired this year, said that she is actually enjoying Christmas shopping now because she can take her time with it.
Sooooo... I haven't written anything except for a little bit on Sunday morning. I would love to finish this novel by Christmas, but there is just no way. I feel like one of those people who always says, "I'm writing a book" but never actually finishes it. I could be "writing a book" until I retire. But I won't even let myself think that way.
