I finally got some sleep last night. Finally. I’m still tired and probably could easily have turned off the alarm and not gotten out of bed, but I still feel a lot better.

The constant rain has put a dampness in the air that – combined with the 40-degree temperatures – is both thick and cold. I guess I’d better get used to it. It’s like another week of the October we had. Ugh. Where did my summer go?!

Holiday decorations are starting to spring up. I guess some people took advantage of last week’s nice weather to do their outdoor décor. I love holiday decorations; truly, I do. It just seems strange to see them again already. While the mother and I were shopping over the weekend, I kept hearing Christmas songs and it almost sounded foreign.

I guess I’m in denial that Thanksgiving is little more than a week away! Is that really possible? Really?

I’m woefully behind on so many things. I was hoping to have so much more done by now and every time I’m in either the bathroom or kitchen, I get a little more frustrated. I’m sure that’s part of my denial.

That’s my story anyway and I’m stickin’ to it.

Thanksgiving is next week!?! I'm ready to enjoy the holiday season, but I just cannot get into planning for it! On the exact opposite not though, we've already got our Christmas cards and are planning on sending them out this week. We forgot to tell everyone that we moved this summer so everyone has our old address still...

Ugh, this year seems to have flown by faster than normal. Hate to say it, but I'm ready for Spring to show up already!

You are being way too hard on yourself! You are NOT BEHIND, you are just still IN PROGRESS. In progress means that things HAVE gotten done. Doesn't that sound a little better?

Vicki -- I know. Unbelievable!

Shane&Casey -- Where do I sign THAT petition? I'm so with ya. :-)

Kate -- Aw, thanks. I definitely like your definition better. Do you work in PR?
