"I will study and get ready, and perhaps my chance will come." --Abraham Lincoln
I'm spending my day attempting to finish my research for my sociological paper on trangenderism in childhood and adolescence. Happy thanksgiving!
Plans for the day fell through, so the kids and I are on our own. They're painting and coloring and playing together nicely, and I'm trying to work toward my future. We'll be having sausage and beans for dinner and chocolate-covered frozen bananas for dessert. We'll talk about all we are thankful for, and perhaps create some new traditions of our own. The day isn't about feasting, since spending a week's food budget on one meal simply isn't an option, and we won't be spending it with friends or family, but we do have each other. I love my little family, and I have much to be thankful for: my children, my home, my critters, my education, my spirituality, my strength. And antidepressants.
Two beers last night, and I was partied out.
My novel came to a standstill, but it's more I've ever written towards one before. And it doesn't have to stop with November.
This has been an insane month. Just nuts. I never thought this would be my life.
