Today will seem odd. In a few moments my mother will be picking Madeline up for the day. They will be embarking on their annual Day of Decorating a my Mother's house. Coincidentally, Noah also has plans for some holiday fun with my father. I think they're heading downtown with talk of reindeer, ice skating, and Christmas lights. Seems fun for both of them. How will I spend my day? Cleaning, shopping, resting? I'm not sure yet and I have a few hours to decide how I would like to make use of the day. Regardless, I'm looking forward to the day. And I am happy the kids have the opportunity for fun today.
