My new column is up on the News-Register site: The joys of being a holiday mom. It's been eight months and still, every publication day is exciting for me. If you get a chance to check it out, let me know what you think. And if you're feeling generous with your time,feel free to comment on the site and e-mail it to someone else you might think would like it. Are you getting that I'm trying to prove readership so I can build up to more than a monthly column?
