I couldn't resist. Sorry.
Anyway, part of the reason I've been scarce around these parts is that I've been working a ton. Last weekend, work included an all expenses paid trip to San Diego. Now you don't feel so sorry for me anymore, do you?
The one problem with this is that I am a pale, pale lady, and San Diego is sunny all the time. All. The. Time. So I spent much of the trip hiding under umbrellas and awnings and in one case, my jacket, while my colleagues pointed and laughed:
But I've missed you and I have stories. Thank you for your patience during this service interruption.
