Turkey Week

With Thanksgiving rounding the corner, I have been busy preparing my home for family. That's right; I will be having Thanksgiving at my house this year. Having decided and prepared sleeping arrangements for seven more people in my house, put up the Christmas tree, wonder where I can get a dining table and chairs for my guests to eat on, figure out how to cook a turkey and what other dishes I will prepare, and am currently in the process of washing bedding, I have had very little writing time, or even inspiration for that matter. Yep, I'm still stuck. Cursed chapter…

My problems with my brother and worries for my mother are heavy on my mind. I know this is a major part of my blockage (aside from the literal sinus blockage, and migraines), and that I shouldn't worry so much about things that are out of my hands, but unfortunately that is part of my nature. My mom's advise, to put the book down and let it come back to me. I guess that beats writing, deleting, writing, deleting, writing, deleting…

This week I think I have enough to keep me preoccupied until it does come back to me. I still plan on trying to attend at least one TRP a day though. Even if I do no more than tap out a blog or attempt that blasted chapter, at least I will be writing. Hopefully I will manage some reading time as well. That always helps to pull me out of a funk.

My kids were pretty good while daddy was in Arkansas hunting. He didn't get anything, but that's ok to me. I'm still sick of deer meat from last year. Allyssa was up with me when daddy got home last night, but other than a quick hug and a "Hi Daddy," she didn't have much to do with him. I think she was just tired and clinging to Mama. Bubby slept all night for the second night in a row in his new toddler bed. He is getting to be such a big boy! I trimmed his hair today, which took twice as long as it should have due to his constant movement. I had to bribe him with Cheetoes, and then with a sucker when we ran out of chips. It turned out pretty cute! He looks like a boy again!

I have a house that I have avoided cleaning all morning. I guess it's time I get to it, and quit procrastinating…

Ta!
