Less than 12 hours left in 2017! Has everyone accomplished what they had meant to accomplish during 2017? Have you all checked off those major items from your "to do" list?
Around this time of year, I tend to spend more time alone. My friends all have families and spouses that they tend to spend the holidays with. And while many of them would probably love to see me, I hate to impose on anyone at this time of year, thinking that they should be with their families anyway.
