It's Five O'Clock Somewhere

Dang. What a LONG day. Took care of business in town. Mailed off my short, short story. And wondered where in the world this year has gone. Wasn't I just buying Valentines and Easter bunnies yesterday? I almost stroked out. Had to ask an old lady for a hit of oxygen. Fortunately for me, she was in the giving mood .
Christmas has arrived. Not for over a month on the calendar, but man, OH MAN, them retail stores are tearing it up. Halloween candy and assorted goodies are already half off. I'm thinking....forget that. Save them for six months and put them out again.
I know the world is spinning faster and faster....but someone hand me the dramamine and slow this ride down. I'm taking Sunday off this weekend. Working on my book(s). Watching a little football. And yes, dammit...maybe doing a little introspection. I know what Christmas is about. And it's not at Wal-Mart. It's in my living room arguing right now over the Playstation.

Our neighbor started putting out his Christmas lights LAST WEEKEND!! I love and hate this time of year. So frantic and hectic.

This year has been a blur. I haven't even thought about Christmas!
