Back from the holidays

We returned from our annual Christmas trip to San Diego today. It was a pretty good visit -- uneventful flights there and back, a quiet Christmas at home with curry chicken and Scrabble and pie, then took a drive up to Orange County the next day for the big holiday dinner with all the aunts and uncles and cousins. It was a good trip, although not without its stresses. T's mom lives alone in a big house about 15 minutes from anywhere, and it's become clear that her situation is not sustainable in terms of her health and safety. But she's having difficulty accepting that things need to change, whether that means moving or hiring an in-home caretaker or both, so there were a number of serious discussions, with her and with T's sister, and no satisfactory conclusions. I hope that it settles out soon, for everyone's sake.

I'm not getting together with my parents until mid-January, so we get this weekend free of family obligations. On the agenda: relaxing, more Mass Effect, and a fondue party on New Year's Eve for which I'm coordinating the food. Should be fun.

I hope everyone who celebrates had a great holiday, and I wish you all the happiest of New Years!
