The last seven days in a nutshell:
Thanksgiving. Early-morning church, followed by cemetery visit, followed by dinner at two separate houses.
After morning of frantic packing, leave on Royal Caribbean cruise to Mexico.
Cruise. Eat lots. Hang out in stateroom to avoid being hit on by drunk men. Occasionally slip outside to enjoy ocean breeze.
Come home, have computer/network problems. Do not unpack.
Drive to San Diego for workshop, drive back. Still do not unpack.
Try to catch up at work. Finally unpack. Start laundry.
Continue trying to catch up. Go to early holiday party. Eat lots. Put Wednesday's laundry in dryer. Realize that Christmas is in 25 days. Panic.
Someone wake me up when it's January.
