I know, I know. I've been missing for quite some time, and you all are just DYING to know what I've been up to.
I'll keep it brief, I promise.
Last week was quite the week for weather around these parts. My kids went to school on Monday, and then followed that up with a SIX day weekend. Yes, SIX. If anything were going to drive me to start drinking, 4 snowdays in a row would have done it.
In addition to the kids having no school, Roon was also confined to the house due to icy roads. This really isn't a HUGE deal, because he is lucky enough to be able to work from home. However, this means that my precious laptop was commandeered for this purpose, leaving me with little to no computer time. I currently have 199 unread posts in my Google Reader. That makes me sick.
I am so close to "going postal" on the USPS. Last Monday, I shipped off 2 packages containing the Quince Quote prizes for both December and January. On Thursday, I received word that BOTH packages had been received COMPLETELY SHATTERED. The packages were insured, so all is right with the world. Once we sell our souls to the devil, and perform some sort of ritual sacrifice, we MIGHT be reimbursed for the things we can provide proof of value for.
As if that weren't enough, on Saturday I shipped off my "PINKTASTIC" swap package to my amazing parter Leah. Before doing so, I thoroughly wrapped a specially made glass pitcher in bubble wrap, just to make sure it arrived in one piece.
Yesterday, I found out that the pitcher had also arrived at it's destination in several pieces.
Looks like I'll be using FedEx from now on. Take that, USPS!
I'm sure there's more that has gone on around here, but I seem to have chosen to block it out. I have several posts planned out in my head, so with any luck, I'll be out of my bloggy rut, and back up to normal speed soon.
