Back to the Grind


My 10-day Christmas break is over. I have enjoyed being away from work and attending to the needs the family and myself while enjoying the holidays.

Today is my first workday of 2017 and I am sure I will be behind already as soon as I arrive. It will be a bit tough getting back into the swing of things.

Un-decorating the Christmas Tree
We live in a tumultuous time. There seems to be something new in the news every day. The new Congress is seated today and the biggest business for the next few weeks we will be preparing for the new administration and impending change in our political operations.

And writing of change, the Christmas Tree is no longer gracing the family room in my house. Christmas is apparently over even though the colorful lights on my back deck still illuminate every evening. It rained yesterday and I was unable to get the exterior lights down and stored. I will have to wait for a dry day.

The new year is off to a rapid start. Come this time in 2018, I wonder how we will characterize this year.
