OK, so December has been a bit of a bust. My roller-coaster 2009 has left me frayed and exhausted. Even the trip down to Florida to spend Christmas with my family was needlessly stressful: a nightmare of blizzard delays with a nasty bout of food poisoning for good measure. I’ve recovered from that bad turkey sandwich, at least, but I’m taking another week or so to recover from all the rest of it. Look for new posts from a revitalized blogger in 2010. In the meantime, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
