I have been rather unwell, my husband has been very sick indeed, an aunt died, we couldn't make it to the funeral, one of our favorite bookstore customers died of a stroke, a few days later another longtime customer died in an accident, the computer I rely on to get on the Internet and to read e-mail has only been working when it feels like it, and for a few days there I couldn't post even when I tried because I kept getting kicked offline.
In the good news department, I'm feeling considerably better, and my husband has had several good days mixed in with the bad this last week, so I think he's on the mend, too. And we're still laughing. Some of the time, at least. Or perhaps I should say that we remain persons of good cheer. I wouldn't want you to think we've gone loopy, when we haven't.
I am, however, a bit behind in my work (not to mention totally uninformed about current events outside my community), so the blog break resumes now...
