Tomorrow, two weeks vacation from work for the winter holiday comes to a close, as well as bidding farewell to my mother-in-law. It was a wonderful break and a wonderful visit filled with time spent with people I care about. But as always I am eager for the new challenges at work and to get back to being a professional Wizard.

Enjoying my days off from work, spending time with Katie and her mom and Elwood, decorating for the holidays, and unwinding from a long year. Tomorrow, we host our annual Christmas gathering with friends.
