Better Late Than Never. . .I Guess

Wow. . .it's been a long time since I got to talk to you guys. For some reason, this blog decided to change things around and move all of our "post dates." I hope you guys weren't confused, because I was. :) Now, I'll be posting on the fourth Monday of the month instead of early in the month. I checked the dates for the upcoming months, and they're all in the 20-somethings. Still confused? Well, so am I, but I put the list on my daytimer, and I'll remind you guys at the end of every post when the next one will be.
Since it's been nearly seven weeks since the last post, I guess I should catch you guys up on what's been happening. That's easy. I can tell you in one word: Holidays.
Both of my business clients seem to go into slower-motion around the third week of December. A lot of people start traveling for the holidays. Some are already gone. Me. . .I stayed here in Fort Connor. It's my home now, and I am SO GLAD. Thanks to all my friends, the holiday season was jam-packed. Mimi & Burt had an open house, and Curt & Jayleen had a great sleigh ride party & dinner afterwards. There were cookie exchanges at Lambspun, and a HUGE party at my Denver client. Warner Development. I invited Jennifer to come down with me for that one. I thought she might appreciate some face time with all those real estate developers. My Fort Connor client, Arthur Housemann, gave me a very generous holiday bonus, which I used to buy presents for the gang. We spent a wonderful Christmas Eve together. Then Jennifer, Pete, and I joined Mimi & Burt for a Christmas Day church service and a fantastic dinner at their home.
So---thanks to my family of friends, I had a wonderful holiday season. I sincerely hope all of you had family, friends, or friends-that-are-family to celebrate with. Meanwhile, it's now January, and it's back to the work routine for all of us. See you all again on Monday, February 28th.
