First flu/cold of winter has been successfully fought off. It certainly made the rounds, and I'm pretty sure it tried to take me out. The kids did great, but honestly I'm a puss with flu and cold stuff, so I just had to plug away and write through the fevers.
Christmas was pretty tense, it has been a pretty tight year, but we managed to do well by the kids, gift-wise.One of them got a lite-brite which was one of my favorites as a kid. Imagine my shock when I learned they blink now! I had a static bulb and a bunch of construction paper to stab, but now they come with a multi-function LED bulb and thinner paper. The passage of time is so cool.
At any rate, I hope this season has found you well. I got myself some writing tools and fluids (:D) to help the process. It is my fondest wish that you and yours have made it through the hard part and that it is downhill from here. Be well, and may the upcoming year be everything that you put into it.
