Now To Get Ready For Christmas

December 12, 2012

Last Friday I drove to Colorado Springs, spent the night with my son and daughter-in-law.  We had a nice visit, went to dinner at the home of a neighbor, watched a movie (Hope Springs).  The evening was definitely not normal for me — a nice break.  On Saturday morning, I visited Jessica and Brian Viera, picked up a 4′ x 3′ x 4′ equipment trailer (which I promptly named “Carrie”), as well as baddog Nola and Chase’s betrothed “Dory”.  I could take the 24 hours off because our CWCCA News Bulletin had gone to the proofreaders.  All the errors came back on Monday, we made corrections through 2:00 yesterday.  At 3:45, the magazine was at the printers and I am a “free woman” — for a short period of time.  Of course, that doesn’t take into account how far behind I now am at the day job.  This issue is 112 pages of ads and articles.  The proof should be ready this evening or tomorrow morning; mailing is planned for the week between Christmas and New Year’s.  This issue will have a surprise insert.  Here is the cover:

I hope to get some Christmassy photos this weekend in daylight, to do a little shopping and wrapping, meet some of my family for dinner on Sunday.  If there is time left over, I will clean house . . . or not!
