My DH and I will join this endless procession by going to my sister-in-law's home for our dinner and then trundling back home as soon as we feel we can get away with it. I'm bringing a vegetable dish. I should probably stop by the store tonight and buy the veggies.
Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the high-effort holiday shopping season. It is followed by Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and the first of my working Sundays. I will be sending an Email letter to my customers on Wednesday and hope that we will have good sales over the holiday weekend and the remainder of the year. I don't feel ready for this at all.
I'm just behind this year - I'm fighting depression (so far I'm winning) and all that I really want to do is crawl into a dark hole until Spring. I love writing, but even writing is not inspiring me. I have two story items due by mid-week and I haven't even started them - VERY unlike me. I'm sure I'll break out of this funk soon, but right now...well, my normal optimism seems to have taken a small vacation. Ick!
