Making plans to head to Iowa to see my family for the holidays. Looks like we can make our trip significantly less expensive if we travel in mid-December rather than around Christmas, so that may be our best route—it'd be more challenging for me to be away at Christmastime anyway, since others' holiday plans can often throw an unexpected wrench into church stuff.
I miss barlow_girl in her work-intensive season. Pizza is not a good enough consolation. But I love how good she is at what she does, and I love that she enjoys it.
OK, time for food.
