I decided I wanted to traipse about the country for a while. Literally. My body was in every US time zone within one week.
Then I came back and was looking forward to establishing a routine for life only to have work explode. Between last Tuesday at noon and this Tuesday at noon I worked about 70 hours. (Don't fear my dear work friends, I managed to do that without any significant overtime. I'm that good.)
So now I think I'm really back. The good news is my mom found a great closeout deal on a camera and was kind enough to buy it for me so I've got pictures of my escapades that will be coming soon.
