But, in an effort to continue the new year's resolution of blogging, I'm going to try to blog even when there's nothing blogworthy to blog about.
We've had some bad news and stressful times in my family lately. We've been incredibly fortunate that our family hasn't really had a lot of trauma or emergencies to deal with, but that means that when these things come up we're relatively unsure how to handle it. I guess we're handling things admirably, but that doesn't mean there's not a general cloud of stress and sadness throughout the family.
The good news is that I've actually been productive at work, getting some things taken care of and making some progress on integrating myself into a new job. I've never wanted a job to work out more than I want this one to work out, so I'm working on weekends and evenings to catch up and work ahead a little, and try to ease out the learning curve that comes when you take a new job.
