Well, I am off for the holidays. I am going to spend them in Seattle with my newlywed sister and her hubby, along with my parents.

I think this is the first time in my life that I have looked forward to a 12-hour car ride as a much needed break. I would take car sickness over this craziness any day. My mind is swirling with ideas and I don’t have enough hours in the day to do them. A forced break from it all is what I need to put things in perspective.

I’m also looking forward to being in the big city for a few days, and meeting up with some old friends we haven’t seen since we lived there about 5 years ago. We’re also taking the dog with us, which should be fun. She’s getting old and doesn’t have many road trips left in her. She told me she’s so excited she can’t stand it. Well, that excitement may be over the new squeaky squirrel toy she got for the trip, but that works too.

So have a happy holiday, or un-holiday if you prefer, and I will be back with a vengeance next year. Good wishes to you and yours, whatever species they may be.
