Just a note to explain our disappearance...
Last week was a flurry of activity, settling a brand new dog into the house. I meant to blog, I did, but it somehow never happened.
Last weekend and the first half of this week I was at a professional conference in Philadelphia, which made me sick with a cough and head congestion. It was also a good conference, but the cough and congestion are what remains.
I was home for about 24 hours and learned last night that my grandmother passed away. It wasn't completely unexpected; she has been fighting Stage 4 lung cancer for awhile now, and that evil disease was taking its toll on her.
So I'll probably be a little scarce for just a bit longer; I need to make last-minute travel plans and get myself to Kansas City for the funeral as soon as I find out when it is going to happen.
