Guess I was just kidding on that last entry – I haven’t quite broken out of my reading rut, and have definitely not broken out of my posting rut. My apologies. Things have been a bit hectic on the personal and professional front, and I haven’t really been in happy, sharing mode.


I’m keeping my fingers crossed that things will improve soon: I’ll actually get to take a vacation, we’ll get a respite from the 90-degree heat of today (really, Baltimore? REALLY?), that the next book I start turns out to be a page-turner … and while we’re at it, any good tips on fixing doorknobs that don’t latch 100% of the time? Not that Cookie doesn’t enjoy a good tour of the stairwell, but for our peace of mind, I’d like her where we can see her.
