Basically, because I was very busy, mostly with my job (at least from Nov to ~20th December). We had a rather critical deadline, and after some hard work, including one semi-all-nighter (which I actually enjoy once or twice a year), we delivered and the contract was renewed. But all of that coding left me with no appetite for more programming, which explaines the horrible mess that CPANTS is at the moment. But well, doing CPANTS et.al. is a hobby, and if I'm not in the mood, nothing will happen. I just have some bad feelings to the people who send suggestions, bugreports and patches..
I had some plans for coding some stuff during christmas holidays, but in the end I hardly ever touched the computer. Instead, we visited lots of relatives, played games ( Gifttrap, Globalissimo, Caesar & Cleopatra, and much more), build some lego robots, solved slitherlinks, read a nice book, went to a one day ski/snowboard trip to Semmering with gf & kids, watched season 2 of Dexter and ate too much. (yes, most of these activites are related to christmas presents...)
