True confession: I hate posting confessions in the afternoon. Sorry folks, the day got away from me.
Feel free to post a little something about yourself, and we'll come by to visit your blog. And, don't forget to check out the "sinners" in The Confessional.
After a terrific Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, I'm in the holiday spirit! I mean, Christmas Eve is almost two weeks away! It also helps to put up your tree on November 30.
We spent most of the holiday weekend running the kids ragged with activities, so much so that they wore us out! By Sunday we needed something to do—hence the Christmas tree. This year, the kids thoroughly enjoyed decorating the house. They were just so excited that Christmas is almost here.
Another true confession: In the picture, you'll notice a glass of white wine on the mantle. Tim and I had one of those "why the hell not" moments and had a glass of wine at 10:30 a.m. *smile* That was a good day.
All of this holiday cheer has turned into action. I'm 60 percent done with my holiday shopping—under budget, I might add. I just can't stand last-minute impulse buying for a holiday that comes around the same time every year. Even wrapped up the kids' holiday photo for Christmas cards early.
Sad news for me: I think my laptop is a goner. When I power up, the screen remains black. When it first happened, I was working on a new poem. Just the beginnings, but a kernel of what I know can be a really good poem if I stay with it.
I managed to save the poem to my flash drive, but I've had trouble working on it without my laptop. Have I just gotten so used to composing on screen that I can't write with pen and paper, or is the idea of buying a new computer getting to me? Tomorrow, I'll ask my coworker to take a look at my laptop for best recommendation. As for the poem, hope to post it tomorrow. I'll suck it up and finish it from my husband's PC.
Also coming tomorrow, December poetry to-do list.
