Somehow I managed to write a Newswithviews column today, but there’s still a mountain of work to clear away. Patty ordered a new stove, I got her car washed–our neighbor thought we’d bought a whole new car, that’s how dirty it was–and we found a new mechanic for it.
But I still have to wrap Christmas presents, we have to get our tree, we have to get our duck for Christmas dinner, I have to get new glasses, and it would be nice if I found a chance to take a shower. There might still be some editing to do, I don’t know for sure. Everything has to be done in time for Christmas.
Are we all in the same boat, this year? How are you all doing, out there? I thought everything was supposed to get easier as you got older. I see now I was mistaken.
I’m also supposed to write a book review of Comrade Bernie Sanders’ Guide to Political Revolution. Mercy, mercy!
