I think I found Carl's alter-ego in a Christmas card...., it's Snoopy; Charlie Brown's dog.
Snoopy is jumping up and down, all excited about Christmas. Look at him! He's so happy and excited and filled with energy. "It's Christmas!! It's coming. Let the festivities begin...
and then this..... Total collapse. The sugar high is gone and there's nothing left.
Maybe it's not Carl's alter ego..., maybe it's mine.
How are we all feeling out there? Does this little dog look familiar to you 5 days before
Christmas? Is this what they mean when they say "dog tired"?
I got home this afternoon. Had a great time but, oh my gosh, I'm tired. Tomorrow I will post some photos of my trip and start some baking. Right now..., it's a good nights sleep.
