Taking Dad to airport and coming home to just chill. Revising and putting changes into computer. SHE SHOULD HAVE TOLD is getting its first shaping from my writer group, maybe I should try the second reshaping by just me then let them read the changes and make sure it is really hitting all the plot points.

Lily’s Lagniappe: Dad leaving today but will be back Dec. 18th. Looking forward to spending family time for Christmas. I’ve requested pictures with all of us. We should have done this earlier but better late than never.
