Thanks to all of you who wished me well; it really means a lot.
When I made that last post, I was just so overwhelmed at being *done* with the months of non-stop work and commitment, that I think things came out a little confuzzled. The sound effect to accompany it was a runner falling to his knees after crossing the finish line. Sorry for the miscommunication.
Anyway, things are being not so bad here (not as good as last year, but...). There has been some family drama, but mostly things are being low-key, which is a huge improvement. Tree is up, lights are on, and the nut, poppy seed, and cheese rolls (image

, fish, lobster, and bobalki
