The News: Losing My Mind Edition Beth Snyder December 13, 2011 At this point, I’m honestly not sure if taking a couple of days off was a good idea or not. I mean, sure, I’m getting things done around the house that need to be done, and we do have only a few days until the family Christmas party at my house, but it’s just a little bit nuts around here.
