and we haven't even got our tree yet. Usually we have it by the beginning of December but this fall has been horrendous and I think I am emotionally spent. I am not in the Christmas mood. I'd like to be, but I'm not. Kinda makes me sad. There are good things going on though. I've sold two paintings at Wilde Thyme gallery out in Colorado and mom is recovering from pneumonia. I guess sometimes you lose your steam. Things are going to be looking up soon, though. I have to believe that. That's what gets ya through, yes?
