What Am I Going to Write About Today?

No brilliant ideas are coming to me--no new reviews to post either about books I've read or for my own book.

Today I'm busy getting ready for our big family reunion which we hold in Barstow at the Holiday Inn Express on Lenwood. We have about 70 people coming of all ages--babies to us older folks, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandmas and grandpas, including greats and of course moms and lots and lots of kids.

I always make my famous chili--which I'll cook all day on Saturday to eat that evening. I got everything ready for it today.

We have to get a replacement for our windshield. When I left for my writing group last night, I noticed a crack--not a small one either. That'll take up most of hubby's day. It's always something.

I'm nearly packed--but have a lot of other things that I need to take care of today.

A bit of cleaning needs to be done.

I should edit the chapter my critique group heard and suggested changes for last night while it's still fresh in my mind.

I'm not thrilled with politicians right now--any of them, really--not happy with the Democrats or the Republicans. Don't like the way California is going or our federal government. Everyone is out of touch with the people who put them in office. But that's all I'm going to say about that.

It's just easier to stay in my own little world--enjoying my family, pursuing my writing career, watching silly stuff on TV like Dancing with the Stars and Survivor and discussing both with family and friends like it matters.

And so that's what I'm writing about today.
