Actually my family isn't getting together until Friday afternoon/evening. It's the first day that everyone has time at the same time.
With my sister's inlaws, my neice inlaws, my brothers inlaws, church activities, travelling, etc, scheduling can be diffcult even when a family isn't scattered all over the country like my late wife's is.
While I admit that I've had down spells since Thanksgiving, I've dealt with it not to badly. Yesterday really didn't seem like more than a day off, since I chose to just do stuff around the house with most of my family travelling yesterday at least some.
Back in touch (online anyway) with people from highschool hadn't talked to in years, interesting what a few have been up to. Online works well, contact with being able to choose when you're involved and when you just want to be alone for a few minutes.
Now let's all hope for a good 2013, hopefully better than 2012 in so many areas and ways for all of us.
Happy New Year, don't party too much New Year's Eve!!!
