No, I haven't fallen off of it, just dangled there for a while.
The first two weeks of December I battled laryngitis, mostly unsuccessfully, and still have a bit of a cough. Nothing like a lingering illness to take the wind out of your literary sails. But I am working on an entry now, and hope to have it up in a day or two.
Christmas is less than a week away. (You probably know that better than I.) I do not miss the frenzy of the season, but I do miss family and familiar foods. Still, we've got a tree up, vacation has begun, and we are looking forward to a sane amount of socializing in the next couple weeks. It's not a bad way to end the year.
