Well, I chickened out on the pre-Christmas bash. Next year, for sure.
I'm considering hosting a post holiday 'Whew, we survived' gathering with my neighbors. Soup, salad, conversation. Then the same type of event with some church and writing friends a day or two later.
In the meantime...I've ordered two of Jennifer's books. They should be here by Wednesday. Guess what I'll be doing the rest of the week?
