Is enjoying the passage of time. So I’ve decided that I’m going to have a really good time between now and Christmas. Sure, I’ll be working every day, trying to pack the house, finishing shopping for my family, and dealing with the mortgage company, but all in all, I have a lot to look forward to. First, work will be fun because we’ll be busy, which will make the days go fast. As far as the packing thing goes, Mom is going to help, so that makes it a little easier. Shopping? No problem. I can pick up everything remaining on my list from my store. Mortage? It’s all about Kevin. Finally, I’m very excited because Allen will be back on Monday, and he never fails to brighten up my day. Forced optimism? Maybe, but it keeps me going.
