There's no way to sugar-coat it, so we'll just say it - we're going on vacation.

Social media has a wicked way of making people envious. Everybody's posting perfect pictures of their houses, their families and their vacations, even if they're NOT perfect in real life.

I've finally gotten in the habit of sending out Christmas cards, and I was at a loss for what to say this year. It was a weird year for our health; I had sinus surgery and suffered a concussion, and Pat and I both got shingles. So, instead of putting lipstick on a pig, I sent out this brutally honest Christmas card.

Hoensty is the best policy, so we went for it. Please don't be mad. ;)
