Thanksgiving Week Plans: An Update

Nov 23, 2021

The change in seasons couldn’t have come at a worse time for me.  The 3:45PM sunset is really killing my mental health.  Add to that the fact that I’m starting at a new firm next week, continuing through the IVF process, and just needing a damn rest, I’ve made the decision to take this week off.  I had planned to take the week between Christmas and New Year’s, but a new job makes days off pretty unlikely.  So check in tomorrow for a Pre-Holiday Edition and Holiday Sales Post, and next week, I have a ton of Ask the Editor posts for you.

Have a happy holiday.  Abra

    Enjoy your week off! Rest!

  3. Sierra delta says:

    No amount of extra morning sunlight will ever compensate for dark settling in at 4 o’clock in the afternoon. The older I get, the less enthusiasm I have for freshly fallen snow. The “romance” of Winter — the myth that I longed for as a child of the American South — has well and truly died of frostbite. My bones long for Hawai’i, but the people I love live in permafrost. And they enjoy it, which leaves me wondering how I could possibly have given birth to some of them.

    This is a hard time of year physically and emotionally, even in the best of times, and no one would ever confuse these with that. You are loved, Abra. You are important to people you’ll never meet. We don’t want you to jeopardize your well-being for us. Rest!

  4. Lost says:

    Take care of yourself!

  5. Nancy says:

    I hope you get some delightful rest, Abra, and what wisdom to make it happen when you need it. Sending you lots of warm wishes for light and cheer and fun, and for a bit of renewal for all the great things ahead of you! Happy Thanksgiving, I am thankful for you, a lovely addition my day!

  6. Kelly says:

    I’m sorry you need to explain when you take time off. Hoping you get some rest.

  7. Shannon says:

    I’ve been through IVF, and it’s a grueling process both physically and emotionally.

    But even if you weren’t engrossed in an ongoing medical situation, you would still be a human.

    You deserve rest.
