I've been on holiday for a couple weeks and will be for the next few weeks. I always end up with about a month of vacation left at the begining of December with little chance of using it all.
It's one of the pitfalls of being in management.
End of the year always has me going at a fast pace. Between Christmas shopping, putting up decorations, family members coming and going, and then going to visit the ones that can't make it into town leaves little time for much else.
Hopefully I'll at least be able to do a few for the contest.
