Then Advent begins and with it a renewed duty to my family to get out the house. Having failed to get an Advent calendar, I need to think on my feet. We've got a little Christmas tree but it's fairly bare, awaiting hand-me-down decorations.
With short days, dark mornings and cold temperatures, our only way to escape is to go somewhere warm over the holidays. Wouldn't it be great if we could just sleep until spring? Ah, if only hibernation was for humans!
