Tonight was supposed to be my alone-time night. I was going to take a long shower, make some hot chocolate, plug in the Christmas tree lights, and snuggle on the couch with the rest of my book to keep me company.

Instead, I get called to an emergency 8 p.m. meeting where we discuss the politics of our company and our situation. No snuggling, no Christmas lights, no hot chocolate, and no alone time. Now it's late and I'm going to have to put off discovering what lies ahead in the next chapter until tomorrow night.


I don't mean to leave such a short writeup ... it's just been one of those days.
