Hello, fellow deviants. I have officially begun my Thanksgiving break!
It has been a strange time for me recently. As some of you already know, my maternal grandfather passed away very early the morning of the 12th. We held the memorial service on Thursday. He had been battling dementia and failing health for years, so it was something we were all prepared for. We have the estate mostly squared away now, and things are falling back to normal.
On the work front, we are going through some IST-wide re-orgs, so it will be interesting to see where I, and maybe my whole team, wind up. I can only wish for as little change as possible, since I like my current hours and position.
Meanwhile, thanks to having saved a chunk of my PTO for the end of the year, combined with the holidays and my recent bereavement leave (which wound up erasing a scheduled two-day trip), I am going to be in and out of the office for the next month. That will be nice. I love the Christmas season, and this should mean I can get out and enjoy it a little extra.
I also just received a daily deviation on timeraider.deviantart.com/art/…
- which, while meaning I may be backed up in my inbox for a little while, is wonderful and surprising news. As always, thanks go to all of you who have supported me and my writing over the years, and also to everyone else who has stopped by just in the last few days.
I hope all of you are enjoying the season, whatever you do or don't celebrate.
