I started reading Jeff’s blog around the same time that I started writing mine. It’s the day after Christmas. I spent the past two days with family. It was great fun, but I’m very, very glad to be sitting in a quiet house watching Sophie lamenting the fact that she is not outside playing in the half inch or so of snow or so that fell in this area on Christmas Eve. Merry, Merry Christmas, everybody. I am blessed, and I know it.
