So, Goodbye 2007

I swear, there hasn’t been a single week since July when a family member hasn’t been unwell. Heck, I’m sick right now — I’ve been flat on my back since Saturday night with a particularly horrible throat infection that’s robbing me of all my energy — and making it feel like there’s a lump of rusty glass permanently wedged at the top of my throat. And I don’t even think glass can get rusty…
