Screw Black Friday shopping. I have other plans since TODAY’S THE DAY when Netflix releases Girlmore Girls: A Year in the Life! Today is also the day when I learn if and when I’ll be able to run again after another visit to my doctor, but once I’m back home, I thoroughly plan on spending the rest of the day binge-watching with friends, eating leftover turkey sandwiches and drinking tons of coffee for Lorelai.
My husband and college kids? They’re so excited!! (Not really.)

Wishing you and your family a most excellent Thanksgiving!
More Than A Day
by Karl Fuchs
As Thanksgiving Day rolls around,
It brings up some facts, quite profound.
We may think that we’re poor,
Feel like bums, insecure,
But in truth, our riches astound.
We have friends and family we love;
We have guidance from heaven above.
We have so much more
Than they sell in a store,
We’re wealthy, when push comes to shove.
So add up your blessings, I say;
Make Thanksgiving last more than a day.
Enjoy what you’ve got;
Realize it’s a lot,
And you’ll make all your cares go away.

Some days have been really, really hard … so hard that I’m behind a month. (Okay, two.)
Now I’m on a quest to catch up and as a way to help, I’ve come up with 50 Ways to Gather Book Ideas for anyone else in need of help. Enjoy! [continue reading…]

Are you looking for ways to stay motivated during NaNoWriMo? Awesome, read on. [continue reading…]
