For the past week or so, I’ve been the victim of a vicious cycle: muck stalls, roust kids, go to work, feed/bathe kids, pass out on couch, go to bed…..muck stalls, roust kids, go to work….

My lap top has been abandoned — keeping dust bunnies company beneath my bed or buried under a stack of bills on my desk — it’s little energy saver light blinking like a beacon in search of life form.

Sorry folks. I could blame daylight savings or stress at work or manic kids feeling the confines of winter approaching — whatever the cause, I’ve been in hibernation mode this week.

We will return to your regular programing, already in progess, asap.
