I was away for a bit, some of which involved a work trip to a foreign country. (San Francisco is a foreign country, right?) Anyway, now I'm back and hopefully the new updates will begin to be implemented by the end of this month. However, I will ask for prayer requests on this because we're entering into what I consider to be the worst part of the year: the holiday season.

I know a lot of people who read this site know me, at least in regards to my online persona. I tend to be sarcastic about a lot of things, so I want to be clear here. I am not being sarcastic or flippant when I say that the holidays are the worst part of the year for me. They genuinely are.

They weren't always that way. I used to love them. There was a lot of special meaning in the holidays and it was always enjoyable to get together with friends and family. But that's part of why they suck so bad now.

I suppose that it begins with New Years Day in 2013. That's the day my mom passed away. It sort of put a damper on the Christmas to New Years section of the holidays. Then, a year later...November 20, 2014 to be precise. That's the day that Skarlet left me. She filed for divorce the first week of February, and Trinity was born shortly after that. Then, after I thought we had reconciled, Skarlet ended up leaving me again the end of November 2016, and this time permanently. I spent Christmas with my Dad and my step-mom, along with friends of theirs. And while it was nice, it wasn't the same as getting to see my little Trinity opening her presents.

So, when I say that the holidays suck, they really do. Which means that for me to do what would normally be pretty straightforward tasks, such as updating the rest of this website to get it functioning the way I want it to function, becomes a herculean task instead. Add on the fact that I'm pretty sure I get Seasonal Affective Disorder during winter, and that just piles on.

Therefore, I would ask for prayers during this season. I know I'll make it, but it would be nice if it was easier.
