December In A Nutshell

Breaking news – 2017 is over! I know I feel like this every year but (as always) it just seems worse this year.   Where did 2017 go?  I cannot believe how quickly it passed by.  Was that a semi that just knocked me over into the ditch of New Year Fallout? Well, it was a busy year, a good year, a…
