A green, sunny Christmas, really? 


And certainly not helping matters was the fact that this was the first year in my entire life I didn't get together with family, other than my husband. It's just the way things worked out. As a result, it felt about as depressing as New Year's, and I absolutely loathe New Year's. 

I took a picture of Wegman's empty parking lot -- a sight not to be duplicated for another 365 days -- as it perfectly captures the mood. I'll smile and tell people, should they ask, that I had a lovely Christmas. But that parking lot says it all.

Oh-wa ta-grin chi-am.
