I will try to get back to blogging regularly this week. No guarantees though - kicking this sinus infection comes first! And since the school semester is coming to an end, that means things wind up for a short time here too.  Thanks for hanging with me while I try to sort this all out.  I do appreciate it.

How did your week go?


  1. Wow, just the sheer volume of your week is nothing short of impressive. The only one I could beat you in is the pots of coffee.
    And I'm very sorry for your friend and family losses. I'll keep you in my prayers!

  2. Thanks Charlie!
    I'll battle you for pots of coffee any day! :)

    Coffee is a line item in my budget and a necessity in my book...does that make me weird?

    Believe it or not - that was a 'slow' week here. I'll be completely glad when this whole PhD thing is DONE and I can have one fewer thing on my plate.

    Appreciate the prayers - they're always appreciated.
