Breaking your blogging rhythm with any sort of vacation, extended or even brief, can be murder on your blog's pacing and relevance.
I'm trying to get back on track, really I am. But oddly enough, I've been paying attention in class the past few days, sorting out scheduling issues, and generally just getting back in the groove. It's not fair to the blog to make it suffer, but what can you do.
Hey look, here's a picture of a puppy. Does that make it better? Her name is Hope (not my choice - I mean, it's endearing and all, but dogs shouldn't have people names, should they? Unless it's like "Horace" or something inherently funny), she's 11 days or so old in this photo, she weighs nearly two pounds now, and she's the newest member of the family down on the L.A. homestead. All together now: awwwww. See you don't miss the news, do you. No, you don't. There, see, look at the puppy. Anyone want to place bets on what the hell kinda dog it is? She's half English Setter and half whatever-the-hell-was-roaming-the-trailer-park-that-night, apparently. But she's cute!
