I know, I know, if I were a serious writer this missive would have taken place a couple of days ago, but weirdly enough I have been way too busy reading blogs to write on my own...well, in between the brandy in my morning coffee here and there, the sleeping in till 9am here and there, and the "hey who wants to watch a movie for no good reason!" shouts to my kids at 3 pm here and there, that is. And lemme tell you - there are a lot of great blogs out there. I wish we all lived on the same block, actually. Think of the house parties we could have.
My hats are off to you all. A very happy new year to you all, too. It's been a pleasure reading your stories.
