December is here! This month is always a little chaotic, as we work straight through while the teachers and students anticipate Winter Break. This year, I’m virtually coaching Co-Ed Volleyball (normally a spring sport, but we’re breaking up all the sports into shorter sessions each semester) starting December 14th, and of course, I’m looking forward to (hopefully) spending Christmas with my immediate family. Plus, I have a second nephew coming soon– he is due January 1st, but could be joining us any day now, and I can’t wait until he’s here and it’s safe to meet him. Oh, and on top of all that, my final projects for the grad school course I’m currently in are all due mid-December as well.

This month, everything is basically the same as back in November. Here are the numbers:
