Today's been a total crap day. Kat had to fly back to Totoland, and I wasn't able to go to the airport. The Hub and Breeze took her, so I'm on my own for the night. They'll come dragging in sometime in the wee hours. We've been doing this for several years, but it just never gets any easier.
I went in to work after they hit the road and lasted for 30 minutes. All it took was one friend/coworker saying something about putting my baby on a plane, and I burst into tears. I decided that I needed to be at home, so I switched off today for Saturday. Yes, I'll be working another Saturday, but I just couldn't put that smiling, happy face on today.
On a different note, I think Santa is in my neighborhood tonight. I keep hearing a siren that doesn't seem to be going anywhere fast, and it is about that time of year. He comes around in a fire truck to wave to all the kidlets.
Our latest remodel is complete. We tore a wall down to increase the living room. Kat's room was absorbed, so she got moved across the hall. We put down hardwood floors (the real deal, complete with the requirement for sanding, staining, and sealing), put up beadboard/wainscoting, and a chair rail. I'm not happy with the color I picked for that, but I won't repaint until I decide what color I *really* want.
The Christmas tree and lights went up Friday after I got off work. Yes, I was subjected to the insanity of Black Friday shoppers, but I was on the opposite side of the cash register this year.
Thanksgiving was a nice, quiet one for us this year...just the four of us. Hope you all had a great one, too.
