Merry Christmas 2023

Good morning and Merry Christmas 2023. Sure, Christmas was yesterday, but the season continues. Let’s hope that we all make it last.

This time of year, a few days after the Winter Solstice gives us an opportunity to sit back and think of ways to prevent repeating our mistakes of the past. I know I have a lot to think about and figure out how to correct past mistakes. I’m human and I know I make a lot of them.

How am I going to do that, you may ask? The first thing is to take responsibility for my mistakes. Sometimes, I ignore that part of my behavior. The second is that I am going to counseling. I find it very fulfilling and worthwhile. I even get homework, if you can believe that or not. And some of this homework is harder than my college years assignments. These assignments allow me to figure out all sorts of things, especially things I have never trained on, such as social interactions and what makes people tick. I’m finding I am sorely lacking in some of these areas.

On the home front, I’m getting close to being able to hire caregivers to take over many of my duties at home. 24x7x365 is just not healthy for me. If I am going to take care of my domestic partner, I have to take care of myself. She deserves that much. I should be able to get this going in January of the coming year. Of course, it will leave me with different responsibilities. This I can handle, no problem.

Once that is done and I catch up on sleep, I should be able to get back to writing. I miss it, more than anyone knows. However, these past few months, I’ve not been sitting on my ass. I’ve been reading a lot, especially about a series of books from an author who is into sexual masochism. My, my. What an interesting take on a subculture, and I’m learning a lot. I don’t know how I can integrate that personality trait into my books, but I’m sure I will.

Merry Christmas 2023, Elves on a Shelf

One last thing about Christmas 2023. Here in the U.S., there’s a fad going on about something called, ‘Elf on a Shelf.’ The idea is to give kids opportunity to learn to be good because the Elf is always on the lookout for bad behavior. Parents move the Elf every night to a new location, giving the impression that they move on their own through magic. After all, they are Santa’s representatives. Well, I broke down and bought a pair, one male, one female. I don’t have kids who need this kind of supervision, but I thought, “Wow, I can put them into various compromising positions.”

Elf on a Shelf.

Do you remember Lauren Boebert, a U.S. congresswoman who got caught groping her date at a live performance of ‘Beetlejuice.’ Well, my little Elves are groping each other in the same way, sitting on a shelf above my patio door, while watching the fun in my great room where the Christmas tree and festivities occur. She is fondling his junk while he fondles her boob. It’s so cute.

That’s about it for now.

Say hi and tell me what you think. I want to know.
