It's snowing - our first "real snowfall" of the season - looks like an all day event. We'll see.
Christmas in Iowa went well. I left my camera at home, and my library book at my MIL's, but otherwise had a good visit. They had lots of snow, which made Charlie a very happy dog. The weather played a small role in travel plans but we were all there and that's a good thing.
We returned home Monday afternoon full of plans and ambition to get started with the house. Laundry was started, mail sorted, naps were taken...
I got sick in the night.
Other than yesterday's laundry, there's not much to show for these last three days at home. I've been nibbling saltines, sipping coke and hoping for the best, but yesterday I felt well enough to be irritated by the situation, so that was an improvement.
If you were expecting a year's end retrospective - well - let's just acknowledge that this one is in the books. Events that could never have been predicted have occurred. Lives and people change. Continuity, revolution, time and circumstances, all hold our attention until the next thing pushes them to the periphery.
Tim received word yesterday that he'll need to be in place in Iowa Falls on January 10. Finish in North Platte the 7th and start on the 10th. We're looking at a crazy week ahead.
Happy New Year.
