No matter what your profession, Mondays are rough. And Mondays after a four day holiday weekend can be excruciating.

Three weeks more until we are off for Christmas break. During that holiday I am going to be evaluating our year to date and will probably tweak some materials and add a few others. Overall I have been very satisfied with our materials this year, and look forward to continuing with them.
