I know it may sound weird, but I am looking forward to spending this Thanksgiving alone. I am secretly plotting for Christmas too, but the best I could do is changing our family’s celebration to Christmas Eve. My Mom does not have a problem with not seeing me on this day. After years of cooking family dinners, she is exhausted and looking forward to not spending hours in the kitchen. Now that I am older I have taken on more of the cooking, which is something that I enjoy, but for this upcoming holiday, I need some alone time.
I have been focusing lately on what is going wrong in my life instead of taking some time to proactively fix it. My company is giving us two days off to celebrate and I plan to use the time wisely. I am going to contemplate life and get some damn writing done. It is taking too long to write my second book. My excuses are running out.
I do not need any pity. I am grateful for my family and friends. I just need some me time.
Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving! I will be at home in my pajamas. Try not to be jealous.
