Welcome to 2014
Needless to say, December was a very busy month. Final papers to turn in, final exams to grade, a large project for work, lots of travel and family obligations, and then, to start the new year off right, I got seriously ill for the first time in three years. I’m honestly glad to have had such a long healthy streak. For a change, being sick didn’t create a major catastrophe in my schedule because I was otherwise ‘on vacation’ with my family in Nebraska. Of course, my vacation became suddenly very mundane. I didn’t leave my parents’ house for five days and I called my partner and told him not to come out and join me over the weekend as planned. Today, I’m home in southern California, still hacking and coughing but overall feeling much more human. I just wanted to drop this short note to stay, yes, I am still alive, and there will be posts forthcoming on the blog shortly. These are merely the perils of being a one-woman operation. Hang in there with me.
