THE FUTURE'S SO BRIGHT

For us, the holidays are officially over. The tree is coming down, joining the rest of the Christmas decorations up in the freezing cold attic to wait through another year. Tomorrow we are back to our regularly scheduled lives, work and school and daycare sequeing into extracurricular activities and our usually full social calendar without any real jarring or sense of dislocation. I, for one, will be glad to get the kids back on schedule, to have them go to bed on time and sleep through the night. I'm looking forward to a long stretch of flexing my creative muscles at work, and gradually paring down my extra commitments. I'm looking forward to choir starting up again...and I'm looking forward to the arrival of Flat Stanley, whom my niece Rachel is airmailing to us this week. He'll be going skiing with Anders, Martin & Karin next week and then heading down to Germany to visit my brother and Simone before going back to report on his travels to Rachel's class.

There are so many things to look forward to.

Since I'm in the middle of taking down the Christmas tree while stopping periodically to watch another episode from the first season of The West Wing or catch up with my online friends, I'll stop now and get back to work. See you later, alligator!
