So it is November! Thanksgiving already. OK, technically we still have a few days of October dragging out but to me I'm booked through Turkey Day. And, immediately after that my schedule is full through Christmas -- so, actually, it's 2011 in my world already.
WHERE did the next two months go?
This weekend we are headed to San Antonio to take the kids to the RiverWalk for it's annual floating coffin parade (and a little Christmas shopping at Cabella's). Next week hubby and the BIL will be going pheasant hunting for about five days; meanwhile, I'll be polishing the castle as we have family coming in from Georgia that weekend to stay with us through the following week.
There's a week in-between to get caught up on whatever was missed during the rest and then we have the school Thanksgiving luncheon and then we head up to Arkansas to see my Daddy for a Thanksgiving dinner and a few walks in the woods. [I'm looking forward to this because it falls in scene with my WIP so I'm hoping I'll be able to sit at the picnic table and type away at several chapters!]
Back home for Turkey Day with family here and then Christmas decorations and preparations and parties and presents and (pressure) and then it's another Happy New Year.
Time sure does fly. It can be overwhelming at times. But, I have to look at it like this. With all of these plans and all of these activities and all the things I gotta do, wanna do, and just do -- I am a lucky Gal. I've got a full life, I've got people in it who are important to me, I've got love.
So, with that -- Happy Wednesday (the day before the day before FWFD of the weeeeeeek) and Happy Sweet, Cold, November Rain... :-)
