And then the final push of the holiday has descended upon this house. Did you know that I have two children? They are eight and six and they believe in this guy named Santa and his flying animal friend Rudolph. They are coming to town – soon. So are my parents and my dad’s homemade manicotti.
We have a few things to do around here -happy, fun, festive things. But a few items to cross off the list and the to-do’s are occupying a large portion of my brain space. I think at this very moment I am inspired to keep the mood light and moving forward and to embrace all of this. And cut myself a little slack in the knowledge that I will not be writing the great American novel this week.
