On Sunday, I was on a plane back to Canada, where the family gathered to prepare for my grandmother's funeral on Wednesday.

Monday, I signed the contract for my new job, to start in January, and on Tuesday I bought tickets to visit my parents for Christmas -- the first time I've had Christmas off since 2003.
I think I'll make it a quiet Friday night. But it's nice to be back in Foo .
