You know, Thanksgiving is 3 weeks away and Christmas is 7 weeks away?  Yikes!

1)  Sunday, 3 November:

*  got the girls bathed and dressed and fed and off to church with Linda at 9:30 a.m.

*  Watched the Chargers-Redskins game and almost died at the end - we lost 30-24 in overtime as the defense didn't, after we came back from 24-14.

*  Got the girls entertained on the computer, took a short nap, got the girls packed up and we left at 3:40 p.m. for Carlsbad to meet their mom at the Miguels there.  We ate dinner, and were on the road by 5:45 and home by 6:30 p.m.
