I am stuffed with gratitude and pie. I should go for a run, I should deal with the backlog of mail, I should write out my expense reports. I should write the next book.
But not right now. I am taking a couple of days off to read and drink vats of gravy.
I haven’t mentioned my mom here in a while because she’s been struggling with health issues and frankly, it’s been too sad to talk about. She is back in the rehab facility (the same place she was in August) and we’re hoping she’ll be home in a few weeks.
So as not to overwhelm her, my sister’s family ate Thanksgiving dinner with her, and my crew showed up with the pie.
Mom ate her dessert while wearing my two National Book Award Finalist medals. ‘Twas a sweet moment, indeed.
She liked the ALAN award, too, but pointed out that she could not wear it. Mother prefers bling that goes around her neck.
On a totally unrelated topic….
…..do any of you Twitter? Should I do this or will it be a massive timesuck? What are the advantages and disadvantages?
