Right now, I am supposed to be hopping out of bed to have some chai tea with my mother. Instead, I shall be having some tea looking at mother nature through my window in Washington. My trip was squelched by another round of snow - hopefully, we will get out on Christmas Eve. It is frustrating and disheartening, but there isn't a lot I can do about it. I shall go shovel again and maybe go do a bit more shopping to cheer myself up a bit.
