Holiday well-wishes from the Mafiosi

Hello All,

No Marvelous Middle Grade Monday post from me today. (Eeek! Is it Armageddon?! Have the mafiosi been raptured?!) No, no such luck.

There are several factors explaining my absence, though. My middle son just finished his 5-week-long professional production of Frankenstein, the Little Monster. (Guess who he played?!) So we were out celebrating. And then, my oldest son has to have one of his semi-regular sleep deprived EEGs to keep tabs on his epilepsy. Night-owl Mom will stay up with him till midnight--this mafioso needs his sleep!!--and I will crawl from bed at 4 a.m. to make sure he's awake and then drag his to the lab for his 7:30 appointment.

Finally, I have a few Cybils-related activities to deal with. So, with all that on my plate, Don Vito has ordered me to rest from my blogging labors and fill up on panettone.

I will be making merry till the end of the month. I hope the rest of you have a wonderful holiday season--and I'll see you in 2012.

Buone Feste!


  1. Happy Holidays Michael. Enjoy them. I'll be off next week until January 9th too.

  2. I'm enjoying a break too. Happiest of Holidays to you and yours.

  3. My oldest had to do the ECG sleep test when he was much younger due to a suspected sleep apnea. Always a pain when you want to go to the bathroom and you're hooked up to a machine (at least he was still in diapers at the time). :P

    Enjoy your holiday season, Michael. Wow, the blogosphere is going to be sooooo quiet real soon.

  4. Hey Michael, Thanks for the nice comments on my blog--I hope you have a happy holiday and an awesome entrance to 2012!

  5. Hope you had a wonderful holiday, Michael. Happy New Year!

  6. Yeah, I went on a break too. Can't wait to see what you pick for the new year.


Youse got something to say? Well, say it then. (The Don and I will shoot you... a personal reply, that is. But if we can't find your e-mail, we'll just reply in the comment box.)
