What do you mean, you can't read that? ;-)
Hint: Look here for a translation.
Things are almost ready here for Christmas... I've just finished preparations for the trip south to see the family for the occasion, and will be heading that way around 30 hours from now. I've just got to spend some time getting things together for the trip (clothes packed, etc.) tonight, so I can just stop by the house after work tomorrow and continue driving.
Given the way that things are laid out this year, I'm mostly staying down there on Friday to avoid making 2 trips, but most of that day is looking kind of boring at this point. In case I have nothing else to do, would anyone I know in the Charlotte area (or even one of those conveniently located in Concord) be interested in getting together for lunch that day?
Next week brings with it a much welcome vacation as well, especially needed after the last few weeks here at work. I'm not sure what I'll be doing with the time yet, but that's slowly getting filled in as time goes on. If most of it is spent simply relaxing at the house, that's fine by me :-)
