I'll be in Illinois from very late Monday night through Friday morning. I'll likely be free on Wednesday evening, and will be watching them turn on the Christmas lights in STC at 4:30 downtown. We're staying at Pheasant Run. Let me know if you want to see me.
jessie was not feeling so great most of this week. After doing a lot more stuff than usual on my own this week, it was really nice to have a day where I mostly did nothing. I think I'm still recovering, but so many times today I just ran over and grabbed her and held on to her, because I had forgotten how much I loved having her around.
