Eksmom--. I've been thinking about you.
tjsmama--how did the Nutcracker go?
JayGee--I'm pretty sure I'd never do that willingly, especially with all the December birthdays in our family, but thanks for the advice. I hope your week goes as smoothly as is possible under the circumstances.
Penelope--did you run?
bec--hope the party went well. We're next. R's kid party will be Saturday and her family party will be Sunday.
I got out for 8 today. It was supposed to be 37 but it was overcast and felt a lot cooler when I was out there. At least it wasn't windy, just chilly. At any rate it's done--like the chocolate-chip pumpkin muffins I just pulled out of the oven.
