I have failed...

Dear Readers, you will notice by the lack of mostly red blocked calendar on the top of my page, that I have admitted defeat.  I didn't get my novel written this month.  Huge frowny face here.  It's too bad, because I really enjoyed the process, and the comradarie of other writers, and the creative process itself.  It was pretty unrealistic of me tho, to even approach it.  Oh well.  I'll probably do it next year too!  Thanks to those of you who gave me ideas and helped with character development.  And now, back to our regularly scheduled program.

Ok, here we go.  Thanksgiving in a couple days, and then the big rush is on.  Don't think I'll be doing Black Friday this year, mostly because I'm working until 8am and besides, we don't really have anything we need that is on the lists..  "THE" lists really means Js.  Her number one desire for xmas?  A shotgun!  Nope, not a red ryder bb gun, but a nx151 20 gauge blah blah blah, I dont' even know.  It's funny to listen to her trying to convince Daddy, who says "that no, family policy is nothing stronger than a bb gun until you're 18.  How will it look to the boys if I let you, when I didn't let them??!! "  I gladly disengage and let them battle it out. 
Toms gifts, a couple of them, are purchased, as well as a GPS for my mom.  I think we're gonna hold off on the big gift to each other, a huge screen TV until after the first of the year.  Tims idea.  I don't really want the damned thing anyway!  Gonna throw a party Dec. 10th.  Looking at some new and interesting ways to decorate.  Any thoughts?  Helping a friend with some inspiration to get his house cleaned up by xmas... this pot shouldn't be calling the kettle black!  hehe!
