I'm loving this time of year. Regardless of your faith tradition, I hope you are too.
However, 2012 brings a major change in how I structure my holiday.
I've spent so much time around work-a-holics that I vowed I would never be one. When I was off-duty, I wouldn't work. Holidays were a time to relax and celebrate.
Then I became an author, and my attitude had to change. I am writing under a deadline. I can no longer measure a project by its percentage of completeness. The book is done--or it's not done.
So, yes, it is Christmas morning. We've opened gifts. We've eaten our 'special breakfast.' We've planned what we'll take to Christmas dinner at the home of dear friends.
And in-between all of that, I'll be writing.
