The good news is that my daughter and grandchildren are coming and should arrive, barring horrible blizzards in the Sierras, the evening of the 23rd. Although I don't celebrate Christmas, we will do something for the kids because all children want to celebrate Christmas. :)
I must scramble to get things tidied up enough for a toddler who will put things in her mouth and will want to touch everything she sees. That's a tall order!
So if I'm not writing a lot in the next couple of weeks, that is what I'm busy with.
