Hello friends! I’m just stopping in to explain my absence… it’s pretty simple; I’ve been sick, sick, sick. 2 and 3 year olds, what can you say? I call them my little carrier monkeys. This has been the croup that won’t end, expounded by the fact that I can’t hear at. all. out of my left ear. Good times. Luckily, I have an understanding employer and a Gent who brings me hot tea, cough drops, gooey grilled cheese, chocolate ice cream (yes, I KNOW those aren’t the thing to cure the croup but sometimes it’s all that will do), and doesn’t mind queuing up endless episodes of Girls, Law and Order and various trashy programs that shall go unnamed. So, if you can bare with me a day or two longer, I will be back with renewed vigor. Pinky swear.
