Merry Christmas

  To every one out there I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.  As I look outside on this Christmas eve it looks like a Bing Crosby night.  The snow has been coming down most of the day and we'll have a traditional looking holiday.  We will be relaxing as much as we can - which won't be much.  My family and I have always celebrated the season with Advent, but I will start right into Epiphany tomorrow.  That lasts 12 days.  We're doing this since we'll be going to visit my parents for 3 kings day.   
     It has been a year of ups and downs as all of us have had.  We wouldn't be human if we didn't have both.  But, it HAS been a good year.  With this -great- economy it is a good thing that both my wife and I have had work.  My wife has just finished a year of work at the Dollar store and I am 2 days away from 3 years for Frontier Communications.  I work from home but I did spend 6 months working over at the call center.  That entailed 4 hrs a day in travel time by bus - so very exhausting.  But, I am now back at home(great with this weather).  Have had good luck this year with published artwork for several different locations and just recently had my first article purchased that will come out(in spanish) next month.  I am anticipating an up swing in paid for illustration work and looking forward to it.
