Is it just me, or did this year feel like, well, a lot?

The pandemic didn’t help that, of course. We’re still wearing masks, still weighing the risk of every outing and human interaction, and I’ve gotten more shots in the arm this year than I have since I was a kid.

I’ve also lost two of my furry family members this year. I have two left, but at 17½ years and 16 years, it’s about appreciating each day with them at this point.

Emotionally, this year has been difficult. But I’ve had plenty of work to distract me, thank goodness.

We’re a small but resourceful staff here at WMG. As of the end of 2021, we have three full-time employees. We do contract out some work, but the three of us (me, Gwyneth and Josh) make up the core team.

And the feat this team pulled off this year is nothing short of…I’m searching for the right word here, because insane is what keeps coming to mind.
