Just to be clear: Tina didn’t run off and join a commune or anything.
Last week, our laptop’s power cord and battery died on the same day. After a simple but poignant funeral service wherein the children learned important lessons about life and death and the infuriating nature of shoddy manufacturing practices, we put a new cord on order and got it on Monday.
Everything would have been back to normal at that point, but then she got a big promotion by the bank where she works and had to start getting herself ready for a month of training in Minneapolis.
So that’s that for the time being. I’m not sure how much computer access she’ll have, but I’ll post something here on occasion (if I remember) just to keep the ball rolling. I’m sure the children are off doing something “adorable” or “horrifying” as we speak.
If you want more from me, I have an actively-updated Facebook page you could visit and “like.”
