No, not the holidays. I'm talking about our illustriously unproductive 112th Congress reaching a "fiscal cliff" deal that among other things will help an estimated 2 million long-term unemployed Americans keep putting food on the table, thanks to continued unemployment checks arriving in the email. Happy new year!
I've been laying low for a few weeks. After the Sandy Hook tragedy, I lost all motivation to blog. My deepest condolences to the families.
I hope your holidays were exactly what you wanted them to be, whether this means they were a minimalist, low-key affair spent watching reality show marathons in your bathrobe, or they included a swirling whirlwind of family members who reminded you once again why you only see each other during the holidays. The spirit of the season is different for all of us, and it has its own way of putting things in perspective.
So where to go from here? Well, there's a lot of workplace news about which to write, which I will now go about getting to while employing many an awkwardly-phrased sentence and dangling preposition. I can get away with using a variety of writing crutches since I am my own editor (yes, I use the term loosely) and most of my blog posts are written in 45 minutes or less.
In the meantime, I wish everyone who reads this post all the best for 2013. May it be a good year for you, at both work and home. You deserve it.
