I've been AWOL lately because
1) I've been busy
2) My family is here visiting.
So far it's been a pretty crazy adventure. There have been quite a few "blog worthy" moments (trip to the theatre, trying to make it to church, buying the wrong train tickets...) but the madness of our days seems to blur my memory so that I'm not quite sure just what I've done these past twelve days since my mom arrived, and I've even less an idea of what has happened since my sister, brother-in-law, his mom, and my niece and nephew arrived last Tuesday.
But I hope to regain my mental capacities in a short while and when I do, I'll be sure to fill you in on all the quirky details.
