What will be different in 2018?

It’s December already!  Holy crap, I better get ready for the holidays.

Wait a minute, I have my vacation request in.  What more do I need to do? Shopping, baking and gift making!

I purposely didn’t write about Black Friday or Cyber Monday (or was it Cyber Week this year?) because I wanted to finish my thank you cards, reflect on what I was grateful for and spend time with my family.  I hope you did the same.  But now it is time to get busy!
