Obligatory Christmas Post

I know what you're saying "Never be obligated" don't let the shoulda coulda woulda's get you. So I won't. But I am putting up a post simply because I want to and I thought everyone should know what I eat for breakfast.

December literally means: COOKIE. Am I right? Today it's a snickerdoodle and my cold brew.

WARNING: Obligatory part ahead.

No I haven't decorated for Christmas because I'm lazy and I have a November hangover from NaNoWrimo. I give you all permission to set aside the obligatory decorating if you need to. Seriously, in this season of joy, cheer, and depression, do what you can, do what you want. I love Christmas, but I learned a long time ago the best way to love anything is to go easy on yourself. There are times in life when this is especially necessary.

The current condition of my office. Does it give you hives? I think I thrive on chaos.

Now, for the gift part. My office is full of boxes, unwrapped stuff, and a locked safe for my credit card because I have grandchildren and I can't stop myself from buying toys that I want to keep at my house so I can play with them. (if you're an editor, just ignore that last sentence and this one)

This last week I've slowed my writing schedule way down and I'm choosing to read and basically stare at my lack of decorating genius. I'm busy on my boudoir reads. This coming week is a short story by Marlow Kelly which she has graciously offered for free as a Christmas gift to her fans.

Don't forget to check out my Book Boudoir. 

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Holidays however you may keep it.
