Mark Your Calendar

This post may seem late, but to our bodies it’s (yawn) morning.  We’re still adjusting to the time change from Phoenix time to Orlando time.  It’s usually a two hour difference, but AZ doesn’t participate in Daylight Saving Time, sooo we’re three hours behind schedule today.  <sigh>  But we’ll get there.  We’re grateful to be home again, which is one of the best parts of going away – it provides a fresh appreciation for the routine of life and the comforts of home, all unpacking and dirty laundry aside.  🙂
