1. Alabama! Well done!!!

2. I am about to practice a very nonsensical ritual. Every year the renewal notice for my psychotherapy license arrives and I renew it. When I first left my practice 8 years ago it was never a question as to whether I would renew my license. An inactive license is $75 to renew and after all the school and all the tests and all that work, of course I would never want it to expire, what if I wanted to go back? The truth is, I'm not going back. And now that $75 is really just a fee I pay the state to remind myself that at one point in my life I accomplished something quantifiable.

3. My studio is a mess, the house is in total chaos, still we managed to make Christmas cookies and celebrate the second night of Hanukkah. And that's what I will remember.
