The tree is coming down. I feel a little Scrooge-ish for taking down my Christmas tree on the day after, but I wanted to put it away with organization, and that takes time. Plus, it’s easier to do such things now, while life still isn’t quite back to “normal,” because next week I’ll be needing to work–and work hard.
BTW, hubby and daughter gave me a lovely surprise for my birthday. Hubby contacted several friends and relatives and asked them to write me a personal note or card for my “big” birthday. Daughter then artfully arranged cards and letters into an album. It was so sweet–I cried as I read through it, so I know I’ll have to go through it again when my eyes aren’t so blurry!
I’ve been reading a lot over this break–ODD THOMAS and BORN STANDING UP and THE DEAN KOONTZ COMPANION and THE SOUTH BEACH DIET (’nuff said) and GOOD DOG. STAY. All delightful reads . . . well, I don’t know that I’d call a diet book “delightful,” but at least it’s “doable.”
Here’s to the real world. I’m ready to get back to it.
