My mom, two brothers, a sister-in-law, and a nephew came over for Thanksgiving today. My future daughter-in-law and her brother showed up at the last minute, too, but there was plenty of food. The tryptopans are kicking in, so I’m opting for a quick nap. I’ve been burning the candle at both ends and it’s catching up to me!
I love my family. We’re a little dysfunctional, but my brothers especially love to laugh. Even now as I type, they’re all downstairs laughing their heads off watching some cult classic Chinese movie made in the early ’70s. I’m thankful for many things but probably take a lot for granted, too. No, not probably, I’m sure I do. We all do. Perhaps that’s why things have to come and rock our world from time to time.
In NaNoNews, I hope to be able to write a bit after the family leaves. I need to crank out at least 1,500 to stay on track to catch up, and actually need to get ahead because I’ll be away all day Saturday. I haven’t lost hope yet, but did hit a wall with regard to one scene. I know I should skip it and come back to it later, but I don’t operate that way. Perhaps I need to change!
