Merry Christmas!

I know, I know, where's the writing down the bones segment? I haven't posted anything since the - what - beginning of November? I'll start back with them after the first of the year once everything around here calms down.

You see Christmas is when my family invades. This year it's my sister, her hubby, My dad and my step-mother along with my brother-in-laws family. I always cook Christmas dinner - turkey and all the fixens! As crazy as this might sound I enjoy doing it. I love having my family around me.

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, or what you might celebrate this time of the year. I hope you are healthy, happy and safe for the holiday season.

Tis a month before Christmas
And John is in the attic
What is he doing?
Snarling and growling because I’m in a panic
There are trees to put up – I’ve now go three
And rooms to decorate
There’s shopping and cooking – will I ever be free?
There’s the writing and editing and blogging for sure
My brain is spinning
Is there a cure?
But somehow I do it
Year after year
How I don’t know
But I succeed – never fear
I take a deep breath and do what I must
I write, then I edit then work on my blog
I push and push until I could bust
Now the holiday is here
And everything is done
I’m happy for my family, friends and my fans who are dear
My crazy mind that comes up with the wild stories that I share
For my job and my passion to write
Sometime they make me pull out my hair
But I love each story
I wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
