It's hard to believe that December begins tomorrow. November went by so quickly that I barely had time to acknowledge it (much to my creditors' disapproval, you can be sure).
This December promises to be so busy that I'm not sure when I'll prepare for that rather significant holiday lurking several weeks in. For starters, I'm headed to a three-day meeting in Florida next Monday. I'll get home late Wednesday evening, work on Thursday (if I'm up for it) and leave town again on Friday to celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary in Las Vegas before coming back home on Sunday.
After that, the month is an endless parade of holiday parties (I'm missing my office party - and lots of other parties, too - while I'm in Vegas), perhaps a bit of shopping, and maybe even some work. Even work will be somewhat interrupted when our company takes a day off to volunteer on a Habitat for Humanity house.
I'm certainly not complaining about my full schedule. It just tells me I have lots of great friends and relatives who'd like to see me. If I have to forego some decorating or cookie baking to make it all work out, it's a small price to pay.
