The holidays are almost over, and the doldrums of January are about to set in. I’m not a fan of January, though I like it better than August (I live in South Texas AND I’m a teacher, so…). I need something to look forward to in the following weeks. My dad chides me for wishing my life away, but I need lights at the end of certain tunnels, you know?
So, some things I’m looking forward to:
1. My 23rd wedding anniversary on Sunday. Yes, I married when I was ten ;)
2. My fourth book’s release on Tuesday (Breaking Daylight from Samhain. Isn’t the cover stunning?)
3. The return of first-run TV shows, particularly Supernatural and Glee. (Boy, a psychiatrist might have a field day with the spectrum those choices encompass!)
4. The possibility of a snow day. Or ice day. (Again, I’m in South Texas. I think we’ve had 4 bad weather days in my 21 years of teaching.)
I’ll savor the time in between, enjoying the chance to wear my fuzzy socks and cozy pjs and drink coffee and hot tea and hot cocoa without overheating. But at least I’ll have some highlights along the way!
