Seeking forgiveness, readers, first and foremost.
Realize that for the past few weeks, things have been slack on this blog. There was taking time off to do the obligatory decorating, shopping, cooking and all the rest that accompanies this time of year. Much of that took up quite a bit of my time, and I hadn't realized how long I've been away from posting. Then, dagnabit! A head cold rears itself! Ick! Yet another setback!
So as yours truly battles with her sinuses, I'll be thinking strong thoughts that hopefully will translate into compelling words to be read right here. Foremost is trying to wrap my head around the fact that we're closing out the first decade of the 21st century. Still mind-blowing when you stop to consider where we we were, as a city, region, nation, world, just 10 short years ago. Reflecting on 1999-turning-to-2000, and then bringing it forward does give one reason to pause for some heavy-duty pondering.
But if you still have an eggnog buzz and you're not quite ready for that kind of deep dive, fear not! You can still entertain yourself with another Law & Order (can you believe it's been on the air 20 years?) or NCIS marathon on cable, college bowl games, DVD/Blu-Ray or whatever gets you through the lull times between poking through posts here. Promise to be back with as soon as I get finished chugging the meds and can think straight once again.
