Just over five hours now until Chris and I will have to say goodbye to Nova, lock up our door, and head on down to the subway station, at which point we will probably watch many a Lefferts Boulevard A-train pass us by while we wait for a Howard Beach A-train to whisk us away to jolly JFK. Not that I'm complaining, it's just that I'm pretty excited about Christmas this year and want to be out there in Anacortes already. All seven of us. Yes, that's right, poor mom & Paul are a mere 19 or so hours away from being inundated with east coast brats. Should be a thrilling, if slightly anxiety-producing, week.
