Over Thanksgiving, I made this. It actually tasted ok as well and my mom only cut 3 apples, cut up the butter, got out all of the ingredients for me and kept asking me what else I needed. (If you read this, you will get that.)
I also took my kids swimming twice, took them to see Puss in Boots with their cousins, had dinner with a friend, saw my sister, and went shopping on Friday. (I think that last one was from delirium caused by turkey overload.) Sadly, I only took pictures of the pie. I guess my priorities are unbalanced.
But between all of that, I did not get my 50,000 words in and I’m not writing 30,000 in the next two days. Because I have a tree for the Festival of Trees to put up, tap dance lessons to attend, a birthday gift to buy, a house to clean,
order pizza make dinner, make sure a skating party for 600 people is organized, take my daughter to ballet rehearsal and performance, watch my son play basketball, got to a wedding, go to a Christmas party, go to a church meeting, and run for office. (actually, 50% of this is all happening Saturday, but you get the picture… tis the season.)
At the same time, for me to have a happy holiday season, I have to get the writing in. And I will. Even if I have to count writing addresses on xmas cards!
