I know!! I'm usually so on top of things! The problem is Kara. I totally blame her. Because obviously I can't send out a Christmas card without her on it, and getting her in a picture with the other kids is becoming harder and harder these days. It's not like she lives across the country or anything, but still, she works and everything - we don't see her nearly as often as I would like. She lives in the city and we live in the country - about a 2 1/2 hour drive. It's not that bad really, but just getting everyone together has gotten harder.
So we went down to the city to meet up with Kara and go get some dinner and see the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center. Let me tell you what a shitstorm that was! As a New Yorker, I am ashamed to admit that I have never gone to see the tree - I was a tree seeing virgin. I love going into the city, the crowds don't bother me, the beggars don't bother me, the noise and chaos doesn't bother me. Those things are kind of weird because by nature I don't do chaos. I mean, I can manage outwardly, but in my head I don't like it very much at all. So yeah, who knew that it was so crazy at the tree? There were so many people, my photo op was basically a joke. People were pushing, elbows were flying. It felt like that time I was

If I had to do it all over again, I think I'd send out blooper Christmas cards. That's actually a good idea. In fact, it's such a good idea that I think I will graciously post some doozies of the past in follow-up post.
