    Hello, everyone! I've been lurking for a couple of weeks and, this morning, thought about responding to a thread ... and couldn't. That spurred me to officially join the group. A little about me -- I'm a widow (4 years) with one grown child (married, no grands). The holidays involve my DD and DSIL, close friends, and some extended family. I try to make it as magical as I can and every year gets a little easier. I've been following the Holiday Grand Plan (that's how I found this site) for close to 10 years, with moderate success --- whatever get's accomplished, I figure I'm ahead of the game. This site has given me some hope and inspiration at a time I've needed it most. So, thank you!

    CTA Red Line was stopped from 67th to 43rd (runs between the lanes of the Dan Ryan) today due to an unfortunate incident. Thankful that's not my line, as I wouldn't want to be stuck on the plaform waiting for a train.
