It turns out the cold I was coming down with became a mysterious gomboo that just kept getting worse and worse until I ended up in a tired little heap in bed for several days. I'm finally emerging from my sickie cocoon today, behind on emails and school and Christmas prep and life.  

But it felt good to take a break for a while (even if it was with a fuzzy head, headache and cough...although the death-warmed-over look is in this year, right?) and it feels especially good to be getting back to health and energy again.  

Next thing you know, it's December 5th! What?! 

Buckle your seatbeat kids, here we go...
