This was Supposed to be a Vacation (and Chapter 9 is Up)

First, if you haven’t seen it, Chapter 9 is published in its entirety. Since last week was the Christmas holiday, things were quite hectic here. We hosted the dinner with many relatives so I had little time to write or get away. Adding to the chaos, my garage door broke so I have the repairman visiting tomorrow to fix it. In the meantime, I have to stuff towels and blankets in the gaps to keep the freezing cold out of the house.

I need a vacation to recover from my vacation now.
