My family has been sick for ten days or so. It is amazing how much does not get done in such an amount of time.
My wife is off working half time this month, and I'm trying to get caught up on household things. Cleaning, cooking some beef stew to eat the next few days (easy to do take out endlessly during such times!), and so forth.
I do have some good blog posts in the works, one of which I'd hoped to post today, but it should age a few more days before being decanted.
So, excuse us, please, while we try to get back on our feet. Just now I've got to go make a rue to thicken the stew. By the way, if you like cooking, set your Pandora station to "Edith Piaf" and pour yourself a glass of wine. It does just the trick!
