I am behind the 8-ball already this morning. Due to busy times at work, and to bead weather, I still have to get a Valentine's Day card and gift for Hal. Not the situation I want to be in right now, I can assure you. To make matters worse, I was given a nice stainless steel bracelet by Hal before I left home this morning. I had to get out of the frozen and snow-covered parking lot to make it to a doctor's appointment early this morning before heading on to work. The best that I can do is to get a card for Hal at lunchtime and to take him to dinner this evening to try and save face.
