For those who celebrate it. Happy winter holidays otherwise!
Grumpy Rumblings will be taking a break this year between Christmas and New Year. Why this year and not previous years?
One of us is traveling this entire period. The other of us has a small, energetic, fearless, and destructive child with no daycare for two weeks (the current daycare doesn’t have back-up holiday childcare and we haven’t found anyone else who can help) and her spouse hasn’t been working long enough to have vacation time. That means neither of us can do much on the internets. (Not even on the ipad!)
Of course, we’ve been around for quite some time (2010 is a long time in blog years)– that means we’ve built up quite an interesting repository of posts for you to read on all sorts of topics. Revisit some of your favorites or find some new-to-you posts to read while you await our return with the January mortgage update.
Here’s a link of links to get you started if you can’t think where to look. Or click on any of the tags over to your right. Or just pick a random date from the Archives and start reading. Unless you’re a completest, in which case you should start from today’s post and work back or the first post and work forward. There’s a lot of good stuff in there.
We’ll miss you! But we’ll be back. :)

I hope you had a merry Christmas! Ours was great. Looking forward to “seeing” you in 2014.

Mine could have been better, due to my daughter’s health issues. But I still feel lucky to have celebrated it with her and her husband — and luckier still to have been able to extend my trip to be here to help out.
I didn’t get that pony I wanted, but I did receive things that I wanted and needed. Can’t beat that.
(Tomorrow she has the ultrasound that will give either very good or very bad news. At some point I will update my site to reflect those tidings, whatever they be.)

We hope it’s good news! C’mon heart-beat!
