I was possibly planning on taking the week of Christmas off, but clearly I didn’t make it that far. On the other hand, I’ve done a decent amount of wrapping, and I’ve finished more than half of my Christmas cards, so that’s got to count for something! For whatever reason, my time is slipping away from me faster and faster, and so I’m bailing on any attempt to pick back up here until after Christmas. (Possibly until 2017, but we’ll see.) In the meantime, good luck with all of your preparations, and remember–be extra nice to retail employees this month!
