And a Happy New Year...

I'm at home, finally getting caught up on sleep and sanity, and I thought I'd do something I'd been thinking of since Thanksgiving, and now that the year is turning, I'll say it.

To all of you, thank you.. This past year has had some serious ups and downs -- a large number of family health scares and crises*, serious work stress for both me and Dave, and a lot of other crap. I haven't mentioned it here (or in chats, or whatever) because this was my outlet -- this was my place where everything was normal and social interactions rose and fell on their own merits. I'm shy, and usually when the shit hits the fan I withdraw, and it's not healthy. This year, I didn't, both here and in person. And that's because you people were kind, and welcoming,
and all the things I expect from humanity as a whole but often despair of seeing in person.

The longest night of the winter is past, and I feel more ready to face the spring** than I have in a long time. Thank you.

* All of which are now resolved and everyone is okay.
** Well, hopefully we'll get some nice snow first. But you know what I mean.
