I am behind, so very behind. This is the first time I have had a chance to stop for a minute where I wasn't sleeping or staring blankly at the wall.

I don't even know in which order everything happened, but let it suffice to say, I have made plans to take days or afternoons off, but it has not happened.

6 Sentences

Due to the fact that I am incredibly lazy, the special take out menu I promised for December 3rd is put on hold for a little bit. If anyone wants to volunteer to be a test subject in the next week or so, I may offer a special deal...

I am planning on putting out a new menu this week.

Next wine dinner will be December 15th.

Big plans are in the works for New Years Eve.

I think we will be in the Venue (Alb Journal) this Friday.

Thanks for your support
