Thomas came back from an early morning run the next morning. Most of the time, he could clear his head when he went on a run. This morning, his head was just as clouded as it had been when he left his apartment an hour earlier. He had grabbed his mail from his box in the first- floor lobby on his way to his apartment.
Here we are, one more week and this year is over! I don’t know about you, but for me it went way too fast in certain areas of my life. In a few areas, the end of the year couldn’t come fast enough. But, that’s not what this blog is about this week.
It’s time for another confession! I had no idea what I was going to write about this week until about an hour ago.
First, thank you for traveling through this year with me. I hope you have enjoyed the journey as much as I have. I will admit up front that I’m struggling a little bit with the topic for December. So, don’t be surprised if I change the topic before the month is over.
It had been another stressful day at the office. Thomas threw his mail on the counter as he walked into his downtown apartment. Dallas was booming with the Cowboys winning last night’s game.
After the game, Jen and Lyn met up with Aaron and a few other friends at the only pizza joint in town. The Lobos had lost another game but, no one was surprised by that. The school was known for it’s rodeo and ag program, not for football or really any other sport. But, you support your town’s local teams no matter what and most of their friends liked to go for pizza after a game.
It was two in the morning when Jen got back on her bike to go home. It had been a good night. Aaron was, as usual, great on the stage. She thought about him as she waved one last time at him before driving away.
This month is known as National Novel Writing Month. The goal for this month is to write 50,000 words, which equals the length of a basic novel. I have decided to do the challenge thru my blogs. Now, I must tell you that I know this means I will not reach 50,000 words. I’m okay with that.
