I was very late this year in getting the lights up - I blame a late Thanksgiving - but up they are. I discovered that two of our stands are not working, despite my attempts at replacing bulbs, so we're a little light in the light department. But, nothing a trip to Meijer won't fix.
Speaking of fixing, I went to the local clinic because of a lingering cold, so I am the proud owner of a Z-pack. Hopefully in a few days, all will be well - my infection will be gone, Andrea will be done with this semester, and global warming will actually become real and it will be seventy in sunny in Michigan in December.
