So, things got busy and I disappeared from the Interwebs almost entirely for some days, and now I am sort of back, but have nothing to show for my time away aside from a photo of a dock in Maine and a picture of a fossilized giant sloth. Right.
But this is not because I haven't been doing things. I have indeed. I went to Colorado for a week with my smalls and enjoyed things like airport trams and crisp mountain air. I went to Maine two weekends in a row, and can definitively say that I would recommend doing so to my friends and neighbors alike. I got semi-settled in at the new middle school teaching gig, and trained somewhat sporadically for a half-marathon that I am supposedly running in about three days time. Oh, and I moved to a new apartment.
I also made some seriously delicious refrigerator pickles, but feel like maybe this isn't quite momentous enough to sit well with the rest of the items on this list.
But I guess it's all a matter of perspective.
