Ho, ho, ho...

It's funny how a few days off can do a 1-80 and send you in the opposite direction from where you were heading...
This year, I decided to close my office over Christmas and New Year's, and then sit at home, read a few books, watch a few movies, sleep in, stay up late.
Then, a phone call to my granddaughter and another with my son turned my plans upside down.

When someone in my family is struggling with spending a Christmas alone at the other end of the country, what else can a grandmother do? I called my favorite airline, scoured the flight schedules from now until Christmas and found, at an excruciating cost, the very last seat on any flight to Toronto before Christmas.

What to do?
What to do?
What does a good grandmother do?
Why, she runs her VISA to the nuts and books that flight, of course.

The luggage is open, half-filled with gifts, clothing, a few books to read, a few movies to watch...not much has changed, except the location. I think this will be a fantastic Christmas for all of us.
