Christmas was maybe our best yet with the kids. They let us sleep until about 6:40, and we suspect Riley was up before 5:00. That level of restraint and patience is the best gift they could give me. And they didn't even eat all of their stocking candy while they were waiting. I got a whole bunch of shirts, a nonstick skillet, and a pancake pen. And then the kids got me a new electric shaver at my request (which I feel especially obliged to mention because I seem to talk inordinately about shaving in here. Seriously, I should probably add a tag).
I've joined a friend's biweekly tabletop RPG. We're playing Necessary Evil. I'm still learning the ins and outs of the Savage Worlds system, but it's been pretty fun so far. It ain't City of Heroes, but it helps.
Songwriting has been a bit stalled lately, but I'm hoping I can push a bit harder now that the holiday rush is winding down. I'm considering it a New Year's resolution to write at least six more songs, and play out at least twice (not counting the Community Circle at my kids' school, awesome though that remains).
