Oh my goodness. We have DSL through [REDACTED evil phone carrier]. On Friday it went down, and they have given us the worst run-around. Several phone calls, hours of phone time (mostly on hold). Still awaiting. And so I’m writing my blog in the warmth of my office before I walk to the library (which is closed on New Year’s Day, along with everything else) and upload it from the doorway. Ah well. Life’s not that hard, really.

We had a quiet little New Years. I was still a bit out under the weather, and we’d had no set plans, so we just had a cozy little celebration at home. But it was warm and sweet.

But it was an odd New Years for me. More than in the past it inspired me to really sit down look back at 2012 and to think about where I am and where I want to be. I feel contemplative and unsure. Hrm.

Anyhow, I hope you all had a fun and safe New Years. Best wishes to you all for 2013 and thank you for the warm wishes given to me.
