So, update news:

work in order to keep him from suddenly getting worse while he is recovering and waiting for the MRI. We have things that we are supposed to watch for in case it suddenly does get worse. Those things would send us scurrying back to the ER, and they would fire up the MRI for us special. After that it would depend on what the MRI showed.
2. My job status. I am still substituting. I did a pre-recorded video interview that for the school year. It was very uncomfortable. I know there is a job opening that is perfect for me, but I do not expect to get it, because it seems like everyone gets jobs before me. Meanwhile, in addition to substituting and trying for a full-time job, I am also doing some work for a freelance content writing website. It's not very money making, but it does keep me writing. In addition, I am still working on my novel, and will be trying to get that to a state in which I can see about either self-publishing or traditionally publishing. I'm not sure which way to go; we'll see when I have something that is finished and of appropriate length.
3. Robert did well at school this semester. His last day is tomorrow, and they are doing an odd schedule. They are starting an hour later, and then letting out at the standard early out time. I think this is to let the students sleep in a little bit. We'll see what happens. Robert was completely unaware of this when the automated system called the parents to let them know. I hope they tell him today and confirm it.
4. Finally, we are having a smaller Christmas this year than last year. However, thanks to several family members who sent presents to us we have enough to make it a fair Christmas rather than a poor one. So we will open our presents over two days, and play with all of them. We will watch movies together, and play together. Which is what the season is about after all.
Lots of stuff going on. Lots of things on my plate. I hope to get back to posting regularly over the next few days since we will be on holiday. I will still be regularly writing, or trying to get some writing done. However, I should have more time to blog because some companies will not be requesting texts, which means smaller pickings for a hungry crowd.
Coming up in the blog will be a project that Will is helping me with. That should be posted next Monday or Tuesday if nothing goes wrong. There will be a Christmas sonnet or two. New Year's Resolutions are coming of course. Finally, January second we have tickets to the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl on January 2nd. It's going to be a very long, very busy day for us. However, I hope to have a post or two up. The first would go up on January 4th or 5th, and the second two days later (6th or 7th).
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I hope you are all having a wonderful winter.
