It also means that my kids are not quite so little and I am not quite as overwhelmed as I've been for the past several Christmases, at least. Is good. If it weren't for this stupid cold-that-would-not-die, I'd actually be caught up on work, I think. Ah well.
Kevin leaves Monday for two weeks of math with a colleague elsewhere, which means that my main goal for those two weeks will be to keep the children alive and relatively healthy. It's easier to accomplish your goals if you keep them small, I find!
