Closing the Book on 2015....Where are my Dice?

I don't know about you guys, but I'm glad to be shutting the books on 2015 and looking forward to gaming in 2016.

I have some specific goals in mind for the upcoming year, projects I've been working on for some time.

Usually my personal gaming life takes a bit of a hit during the mad rush of retail hell that is the "Christmas Season" starting a couple weeks before Black Friday and ending a few days after Christmas. This year, however, I've been working in a different retail setting where the 3 busiest days of the year are the day before Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and New Year's Eve....pretty much in that order.

Things were bad enough (maybe not the right word to use) that I just had to take a week's vacation from being the Frugal GM. Now I actually have a week of vacation from work so I can pick things back and start digging into this year's projects. I think on of my 1st projects will be creating my own personal travelling GM box/kit. I've got something special in mind.....

I do wonder if others find the the holidays too much to be able to game regularly. If so, how do you manage to get your gaming fix on during the interim and do you have anything special planned for getting the group back together post-season?
