Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Merry Christmas! Happy last day of Hanukkah and a Happy New Year to you and your family! You won't see me again until the second week of January where my focus will once again turn to recovery and writing. No January IWSG for this chick. I'll be spending the holidays with my family and friends and it's gonna be awesome! Have a great holiday season everyone!

(comments are turned off as I won't be visiting anyone this week. I have too much wrapping to do! the elves never showed up to wrap the gifts this year!)
