How did it get to be December already? Each year the time seems to fly by more quickly, which I've been told is a sign of getting older. Do we just appreciate each day more? Or do we just have more to do? Whatever it is, Christmas is only 3 weeks away and the tree's not up, there are no cookies baked, and I've barely started shopping! I DID get my cursed pirate novella finished, though, so it's a good day.
