I'm going to have to ask for a do-over between 12/28 and 12/31, please. This happened to fall on my shopping/packing/cleaning/wrapping day and....it's not pretty. Not pretty at all. At one point I had hope of words, too, but... omg, nope.
Tomorrow I drive 315 miles north and get caught up in a whole other whirlwind, so... please hit me again close to New Year's!
