Clock is Ticking...

So this week is Thanksgiving Week in the US. Thursday is Thanksgiving Day, a day when many of us will gather together with family members to overeat on turkey, sundry vegetables, fresh baked rolls (if we are lucky) and pie for dessert. We will then roll our numb bodies back to our assorted domiciles and collapse in heaps of overly-stuffed participants.

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!
