It’s happened again. Christmas has come and gone*, and it’s a new year. 2006. I feel as if I’m in some kind of a time warp, and the world is whipping around me faster and faster and faster.
*Unless you’re like my family and officially celebrate Christmas up through Three Kings Day, which is January 6.
This holiday season was the usual blur, but good. We had family visiting, and I spent a lot of time watching high school wrestling. (The off-season work is paying off for my daughter Lexi. She’s won a couple of matches already, and when she loses, it’s usually a hard-fought match. As usual, I volunteer as announcer for home meets.)
My wife’s job as the managing editor for an online math education program came to an end with the end of the year, so we are in a state of flux right now. The possibility looms that I might have to once more set aside work on the book in order to do freelance or consulting work. We’ll see.
Still, I made two resolutions for the new year. One is to catch up on my financial record-keeping so that I’m not totally swamped when tax time comes around. The other is to finish writing Sunborn! One way or another! (Sleep? Who needs sleep?)
