Holiday Amnesia

Of course the holidays were more fun when I was a child and could just sit back and enjoy them with none of the work. I have gotten a little less enjoyment each year in scheduling when we can possibly get a tree and how we will find some extra Jacksons to pay for it and ultimately slogging out the same decorations to adorn it.

I know I sound terrible. And the tree is my FAVORITE PART OF CHRISTMAS!

But I have reached a new low this year…

This year, I can’t even remember it.

That’s right. I can’t remember what happened.

It was a blur of buying gifts, wrapping gifts, buying ingredients for cookies, going to holiday events which seemed to be happening not only every weekend, but then every night of the week. I remember the holiday party at work, and how much I was looking forward to it. That night, we saw a listing for a dog online who would turn out to be part of the litter we would ultimately adopt our new pup from.

Then, there is a blur.

Puppy arrives

I know a dog started living with us between Christmas and New Year’s. We went to my sister-in-law’s New Year’s Eve party. We took the dog. I think. My husband and I had birthdays too, but I only remember coming out of a sickness fog to return to work.

Did this really happen?

I am finding items around the house that I don’t remember. They all turn out to be my son’s Christmas presents he received. I know when we got the puppy there was a mad rush to remove items from her path that she may destroy or eat. But having them out of site also put them out of my mind.

Maybe I am just out of my mind.

Has anyone else ever experienced this, or is it just me?

Maybe the 24 hour stomach flu that went through our house had a coma effect? Except, well, I am the only one experiencing this problem.

Oh well. I have always said that Christmas should be like the Olympics—we should take a break in between them. Even Christmas every other year would be more palpable.

Maybe the Jennifer’s Holiday Amnesia Episode of 2017 is Santa’s way of granting that wish. He managed to grant all my other wishes this year.

Your past shapes you. It can’t be undone.

ANGRY MACEY RELEASE DAY!!!

It is RELEASE DAY!!! I am so hopping excited to release this book into the stratosphere! Not because Angry Macey is a happy book, because it is not, by any means. And it is NOT a romance, although there is a little romance sprinkled in. It is a story and feelings that have been crying out to be set free since 2014. Now it can stop polluting my mind and pollute all yours with anxiety and depression instead!

Were you bullied in school? Were you the bully? Either way, you should read this book.

Available Now!

Of all the books I’ve written, Angry Macey is closest to my heart. It is YA teen angst (But not that genre! This is General Fiction.) that has been left to fester until it erupts into a mid-life crisis. Your past shapes you. It can’t be undone.

Did you read my book Troll Gurl and the Cursed Kingdom? Ginny is a victim of bullying. She is put upon, until she learns she does have the power to fight back.

Macey is also subject to bullying, more verbal than physical. Macey knows she wants to fight back, but is misdirected & lost, she doesn’t know how to go about it. She has anger, but no goal to strive for. Angry Macey is her journey to move through that.

Angry Macey is really two books in one. So, if you are in the first half and it is too dark and you want to give up, know that there is light coming for Macey. And possibly palm trees.

Don’t forget about my mission that is still seeking direction “Love Yourself”. Check out the page here: https://imnotstalkingyou.com/love-yourself/

Everyone feels like they are guided at some point in their lives. But what if you were guided to do something terrible? What if you were too blinded by anger to even care about the carnage you were about to inflict?

Meet Macey.
Mid-life crisis. Mental breakdown. Payback. Revenge.

I was the woman who did everything right. I had always followed my head rather than my heart. And where had it gotten me? Unemployed, depressed, and soon-to-be homeless. I couldn’t help but try to find the source of where it had all gone wrong. With my twentieth high school reunion coming up, it wasn’t hard to imagine the time period of my life that my thoughts returned to. I want them to pay. There are only two people who could possibly stop me, and one of them died yesterday. The other will probably not even remember my name…

Your past shapes you. It can’t be undone.
