Joe and I drove back from Charlotte, singing Christmas carols most of the way.



I had a UPS package by the door when I arrived. It was Vivian's and Jeff's Christmas gift. Yay!



I worked from 12:00 - 8:00 today. Loretta postponed our 3:00 meeting until next Monday at the same time.



I did 1.5 crossword puzzles tonight. I only did half of the second one, not because it was too hard, but because it got too late, and I got too tired.
