I managed to get several posts for my website done in a rare day where I could sit down and get some solid computer time while everyone was awake. That was a nice change of pace. 

However, after this, a very close and dear friend of the family went to the hospital and passed away. It will be very odd not having Christmas and birthdays together or just talking with them most days. This coming week I will not be doing much writing as we handle the aftermath of this devastating blow. 

I hope you take a moment to call your friends and hug your family tight. You will never be sorry to let them know you love them.
