Remember Bill Nye the Science Guy? I used to love watching his show with my kiddos when they were little. (I try to ignore the fact that he's gotten...um, rather weird, of late.)
Here's the intro to the show:
Did you hear the part about inertia being a property of matter? Yeah, well, it's a property of bloggers, too.
What's that you say? What is inertia?
*Ahem* Inertia is the tendency for a body at rest to remain at rest, or a body in motion to remain in motion, until acted upon by an outside force.
Which is a rather convoluted way of saying that once you've paused, it's hard to get moving again.
Most of y'all know the "outside force" that acted on me: the big medical clusterfu--um, yeah--that descended upon my family when my mom and my father-in-law each had to have major surgery right in the middle of my edits.
I know! Talk about poor timing on their part. Next time I hope they schedule their emergencies better.
Kidding. I'm really not that self-centered and cold-hearted. (Much.)
The good news is, the 'rents are on the road to recovery, my initial edits are done, and I'm starting to feel human again.
The bad news is...I'm b-a-a-a-ck...! And you will once again be subjected to my inane ramblings on whatever strikes me as remotely amusing.
WARNING: future posts could include stories about ICU hallucinations of cats and stolen panties, anesthesia-induced psychic visions, and how the best thing you can do after a long day in a hospital waiting rooms is "un-WINE-d."
P.S. Thanks for all your positive thoughts and prayers while this mess was going on! Much appreciated. :)
