Sign when I got on the highway after work this afternoon: LONG DELAYS EXITS 1-7. SEEK ALT. ROUTE

Translation: The whole way home is a parking lot. Get comfortable, because there’s no escaping the holiday traffic! 

Gotta love Christmas, hunh? Such a wonderful, peaceful, joyous time of year. Where everyone is happy relaxing with their loved ones…

We’re off tomorrow to visit our loved ones in Canada, and for a change, we have 9 whole days to do it in. This is what those days look like (the names having been removed to protect the innocent):

Still, this is going to be much less stressful than our usual visits home, and I have to say that we’re both really looking forward to it. The last half of this year has been a challenging one — and that’s without saying anything about how tough work has been lately. I have a half day tomorrow to get things to a place where I’m comfortable leaving them, then the nine hour drive home.

To those we’re going to see, we can’t wait to reconnect!
To those we are leaving behind, have a wonderful Christmas and a great New Year!

We’ll be back in 2008 with news about what comes next for the Wises…

  1. Sorry that we are not going to be a part of it, but we wish you a safe journey and a wonderful visit with family and friends. Thank you so much for the gift that arrived today. We will treasure that always. Merry Christmas to the four of you!
