Can I vent today??? You see this time of year is stressful for EVERYONE, not just me but to tell you the truth, I’m only worried about me right now!!! (wink)
The holidays are always hard. We want to give the kids everything they want. They want to give their kids everything they want. And the crap rolls on and on. We have got to stop somewhere. Every year we say NO MORE. And every year it’s more. With the cost of things going up and the income’s going down, the math just doesn’t add up.
Along with not really knowing what to get my grandchildren, nieces, nephews, sisters, sister-in-laws, mother-in-law, etc, etc, etc, my baby sister has no heat in her house. She and her son are here with us right now. Here it is Christmas and she has this to go through! Thank goodness her 18 year old really doesn’t care. This is his last year of school and he wants to go in the service.
My other sister has been here visiting from AZ. Her husband and her flew back home this morning. My children are in such need of help because of this economy. And to top it all off…………………
All I want to do is finish my books!!!!! The editor has sent me the first one back to correct. It is a mess. I really am grateful for him. He made the book sound so much better! I’ve sent him the second and I hope his eyes don’t fall out of his head!!!
Now my work is cut out for me. I have to get the corrections made, send it back for a final review and then find a way to get it published!!! That is going to be the trick. I will work my behind off to do that. I want this more than anything (except the health of my family!).
Okay, enough whinning for one morning! I really need to get busy. Lot’s to do! (I don’t even have the first decoration out!)
Talk to you soon and have a wonderful day!
