Traffic understands me on this, thank goodness. Since it's coming in so late, she says "do what you can." She knows I'll give it my best shot, but I'm not going to kill myself to get through the whole thing. I'm out of the office on Thursday, Friday, and Monday---doing some early Christmas prep and visiting Russell's Garden Center in Wayland to see their Christmas merchandise. (They advertise on MMC---I've seen their banners now and then!)
Enjoy your days off!

my eldest informed me that I need an outing so she is going to take me somewhere, not saying where, just that I will love it and it will be sure to bring the spirit of Christmas back. So now she has me curious as to where we are going. We both have Saturday off so that is the day we are going...somewhere.
