I apologize for the temporary radio silence. I learn a lot about myself during the holiday season, like how I would react during a natural disaster. Not well. When bombarded with situations that require split-second decisions, I panic. In recent days, I’ve been weeding through a seemingly endless sea of packages, each containing multiple gift options for various people, because I was unable to decide on just one. Mix this chaos with several holiday parties and great intentions of regular blogging go right out the window. Cue the tiny violins.
