It occurs to me, now, that I probably should let people know that I’m taking a little blog posting vacation, before I actually take said blog posting vacation. But that requires thoughtful foresight. Apparently my brain went on vacation first. So two weeks, give or take, for me to get myself rested, enjoy the kids a little more than usual, and gather lots of fodder for my return. Like, say, stories about strawberry ranch and the three-year-old’s version of Simon Says, copious amounts of sweat and the joy of a brand-spanking-new iPhone. Those kinds of stories. All in good time, friends, all in good time.
