‘Tis The Season

It’s that time of year again.

With lots to do, back to back scheduling is just one if the stress inducers. It takes a lot of creative juggling and everything needs to work just right to stay on top of your schedule.

Today was an example of that kind of day.

I needed to get to Monticello to make certain everything was priced and ready for the show.


It starts tomorrow, Friday, December 3rd at 8 am.

I had all the angels praying,

I needed to be back in Silverton, for Sam’s Christmas Program by 6:30 at the latest.

But, I was 42 minutes late leaving…

If all went well, the best would be 15 minutes late.

Thankfully I was “misinformed”.

It started at 7pm…

I was early!

That was odd!

Some day Sam will hate me, but this is one of the perks of being the mother.
