I’m glad to be home where I can sit with my old hound dog and try to recover from all of the painkillers I’ve taken over the past four days.  I sleep too much, but otherwise am comfortable lying on the couch and looking at the decorations I managed to get up before I had to slow down.  I think I’m finally convinced that I put up too much stuff, but it’s so nice to see so many of my old treasures out again this year (I didn’t have a chance to get ALL of them out).

It was wonderful get on the computer and see messages from so many kind, thoughtful people.  Thank you again.
