No matter what holiday you celebrate, I hope everyone has some time with friends and family to relax and rejuvenate after a tough year. Many thanks for the education, support, and friendship that you’ve provided me this year. My body held out just long enough to finish my last few hours at work yesterday. I’m now exhausted and seem to have a cold.

I am enjoying a quiet day at home resting, and I’m cooking a coconut chicken curry with turmeric for Christmas eve dinner. Not too exciting, but perfect for me. Tomorrow, I may go see a movie and eat chinese food. After that, I have many days off with no real plans and I’m looking forward to it.

I hope everyone else is getting exactly what they want after a long hard year. I think our spirits are all a little weary. I enjoy the fur faced fridays and positive posts here. It’s been a godsend during my news black out.
