I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. It's been a busy week and I've been bogged down. It's always this way when school starts: my body is still on summer-time and has to take a couple of weeks to adjust. And it takes longer the older I get. I've also been running back and forth to my mom's who is still recovering from her little tumble a couple of weeks ago. We're getting there.
I'm still reading Mark Steyn's After America, but when I realized I was so tired I was reading the same paragraph over and over, I put it down for a few days. I don't want to miss a word so I'll pick it back up this weekend.
I am simultaneously reading Rick Perry's Fed Up. So far, it's entertaining, sensible, and well written. I'm not very far along yet, and I haven't gotten to any of the things people are referring to as "loopy" but so far I like what I hear.
So far this school year is going pretty smoothly; much more so than last year which just seemed like one speed bump after another. I have a couple of new challenges this year but it's been a good sort of challenge rather than the burdensome kind.
Apparently all I'm missing as far as blog-worthy-news is coverage of Hurricane Irene and Obama's vacation and I'd just as soon take a pass on both of those anyway.
Stay high and dry this weekend and be safe if you're in the path of Irene. Buy more beer.
