Took me about 11 hours to get to CO today, but I made it. Started out with a flat tire, then had some delays, and waited in the de-icing line which felt like it took way too long. Eating more would have helped. But Mattie is here, looking a bit fat, and we had dinner with my dad, who got me some very nice flowers! They smell great! Time to wrap some gifts and watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
