This year is my first year since 1993 without my family. WHAT WAS I THINKING? WHAT was I thinking? I hope I’ll never do that again. I guess I thought I had too much going on and I wasn’t working for eight months and I couldn’t book tickets home in time and by the time I could afford them, they were really, really expensive.
I guess I’m finding the economy is hitting hard all-around this year. I think that I’ll just put off Christmas until March some time. Maybe June.
