Monday Mayhem – Welcome to the world

It’s that time of year again…those crazy few weeks when ‘I have revisions’, ‘this book is going to galley’, and ‘I need to write this proposal’ are not counted as valid excuses for avoiding the world and all around me.

I do have revisions to do, and a book going to galley, and the first few pages of a proposal started, but those things count for nothing when this needs to be done:

xmas1

xmas3

xmas2

I also need to attend to some shopping and baking. Somewhere out there, some poor, unsuspecting Christmas tree is out there just waiting to be dragged home and dressed up in a decades-old collection of mismatched ornaments.

The revisions, galley, and proposal will have to take a backseat for a few weeks. The holidays are upon us, and I have a candy apple red KitchenAid that needs to be christened.

To all my friends who celebrate Hanukkah, I wish you the happiest of holidays.

The rest of you…well, on your marks, get set, GO!

Luckily, Grace was still more little girl than teenager. She ducked her head and pressed it into the crook of Darla’s neck, seeking comfort in the same place she’d found it since the day she came into the world. Darla brushed the heavy dark curls away from her baby’s face and sighed. “I’m sorry, baby.”
“So embarrassing,” Grace mumbled, but to Darla’s relief, her daughter relaxed into the caress.

“I’m your mom. Embarrassing you is in the job description.”

“You excel at it.”

Resting her cheek atop Gracie’s head, Darla smiled. “I’ve always been an overachiever. No one can screw up as big as your mama, kiddo.”
