Friday, December 5th

The holidays are here again and, as usual, I am nowhere near ready. Someday I will really have to take the entire month of December off so I can enjoy them properly without wondering how I am going to get everything that needs to get done finished. At least Tommy is out of school starting Wednesday and can take on some of the decorating and planning chores.

We have tenatively scheduled the return of our traditional open house for Sunday the 21st. The top three floors will be open and the basement will be discreetly closed to the public due to the recalcitrant mess that remains down there. I put a lot of energy into it last week and it's much improved, but there's still a long way to go. Going to try and drag the decorations out this weekend and start on that and finish the out of town christmas shopping.

I am off to West Virginia on the usual run on Sunday. Back Tuesday night. I hope the weather holds as I really don't like driving long distances in the dark and snow if I can help it. It'll keep me out of Tommy's hair during finals.

Got to come up with the energy and inspiration to finish writing this years Politically Incorrect Cabaret from somewhere. Anyone who has any to send along, donations are welcome.
