Dryer sheets and mosquitos? D.C.'s blogs

Depending on where you are on your holiday to-do list, you either can't wait for Christmas to come or you've shifted into panic mode. Why don't you take a few minutes, take a deep breath and distract yourself with some posts from our D.C. area bloggers – who, despite the looming holiday, are hard at work.
