A quick post to welcome in the new year. Reality sinks in tomorrow when the kids return to school, the Christmas decorations come down, and I start checking my work email. For now, I'm basking in a few more minutes of pure vacation time.
We had an extremely busy day today--brunch and a movie with some neighbors, a walk, a couple of Monk episodes and then getting ready for reality. Frankly, I'm exhausted.
A quick glance around the blogosphere and I see people returning from conferences and other travel, beginning prep for classes, finishing dissertations, making resolutions, and much more. It's nice to hear the chatter again.
