>The day after

>I don’t know how I do it, but yesterday was another later night for me, I’m usually fast asleep by 9 every night (we get up at 4 every morning). We got home after 11 and asleep by midnight.

We finished our time there with some good conversation and even better desserts, thanks for the ‘lemon lush’ recipe Ginger. We then were on the road to my sisters for some more conversatio. Ok, let’s be real, more food and then some conversation second. I snacked on a few different items then were at Em’s parents-calamari and shrimp and then some more dessert. My sister had some of her wonderful Shortycake cookies to nibble on. After some time we headed home for our night of rest. Tonight we’ll be heading down the street for the annual Christmas parade and then our dinner at Barolo’s a gem of a restaurant in Joliet.

Maybe making that statement is a bit of denial. Thinking about all that has happened since highContinue Reading
