Halloween is around the corner. The holiday doesn't excite me like it did when I was a kid. I don't have the money or creativity to come up with costumes. The magic is gone. I have Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin.
Thanksgiving is around the corner. The family we've been dining with for years has children of their own now, and family in town. I suspect we'll be on our own, and that's ok. I have things I can make. And we never underestimate leftovers! Maybe the dog and cat will get some Turkey too.
The holiday blues start earlier and earlier every year.
