I see on the calendar that time is slipping away toward the big day but I only want to curl up in bed with the covers over my head while wait it out until the new year.
Is it because I'm behind on the short story that I'm working on?
Is it because the rain has not stopped for three days and I'm looking online for ark building plans?
Is it because the dog is rummaging through my dirty laundry and hiding my socks around the house?
Is it because the Bengals lost to the Steelers last week?
