In my house the crazy season starts the week before Thanksgiving, when I get the Holiday Binder down and make my list for the big dinner. Two weeks later is the big hospital fundraiser, then three weeks after that is Krismas, with all the gifts and decorating in between. A week to New Years, and then two weeks after that we board the California Zephyr (seen above) to go spend two weeks in Colorado with my in-laws.
This year I added several doctors appointments to that mix, a tentative diagnosis of diabetes for me, with more testing to come, and a dear friend who has been/is both moving and changing jobs over the holiday.
Yes, it has been insane around here. And it's not over yet.
I'll be back to regular updating as soon as I can.
