"Okay, let's meet next week and close up this contract after Thanksgiving."
"No that doesn't work, I am on a ski trip. How about the week after that?"
"No I have to attend my daughter's Christmas play and can't travel that week. How about the following week."
"No, Fran's parents are coming in early for the holidays and I am grounded."
"Well, we both know we can't do it Christmas to New Years. So how about we chat in January?"
"Great, but not until the first full week since the kid's aren't back in school yet."
"Perfect, we'll have this all wrapped up in seven weeks!"
