Welp, It's About that Time. . .

Greetings Intellectual Minds,

Well, as the title suggests, it's about that time (once again!)  Thanksgiving is just two weeks away.  I know I must sound like a broke record, but it amazes me how fast 2015 has flown.  It doesn't even feel like we should be at this point.  If I didn't know any better, I'd swear I was in an episode of The Twilight Zone.  I can remember last year this time so vividly.  Life really is too short to full around.  Time waits for no one, and that is so damn true the older I get. This is why I'm extremely careful how I spend my time and not waste it on anything or anyone that is so not deserving of it!  (smile)

At any rate, I apologize for not having something of more substance to post. Actually, I racked my brain trying to figure out what I wanted to converse about, and although I found one subject pretty tantalizing, I decided I'll hold off until I learn more about it, and then I can give my full opinion on the matter.  

I'm sure you have turkey on the mind, family and good friends.  Black Friday is coming up and the stores are doing all they can to entice us to open our purse strings.  Cyber Monday will be offering some really great deals too, so don't forget that.  Personally, I'm a cyber woman.  I can't stand the thought of getting dressed, heading to the mall, fighting in traffic and for a parking space, all the madness that comes with the holidays.  I'm so not that girl. Never have been.  Hey. . .I'm not knocking you if this is your thing.  It's a personal preference.  I just don't feed into the commercialism of the holidays.  I give of myself all year round, so to me, the holidays are just a much needed break from working all year round. However you choose to spend your holidays, is certainly up to you!  I'm not hating or judging anyone, so please do not misunderstand my words.  Although having said that, there will be some of you who will email me and say, "hey what did you mean by that?  I do this for my family and that. . .yada, yada, yada!"  Again, I'm stating what I do and how I feel.  I don't knock anyone's celebration or the way they want to celebrate. (chuckle)

Welp, I'm gonna get outta here.  I've got a gazillion things I'd like to accomplish, and sitting at my laptop right now isn't on the top of my list at the moment.  Just as I'm sure, many of you don't have time to sit back and read.  Trust me, I get it and I understand. It's going to be sheer madness the next few weeks, so be safe, keep the faith and God Bless.

Until next time, Happy Reading (whenever you can fit it in between now and Jan. 1.) (LOL)
