My break was a little longer than anticipated. Just as I finished moving I got news that my father had just passed away. (Double pneumonia, complicated by possible acute leukemia that had gone undiagnosed.) I had to go spend the week with the family. I'm still reeling from the blow. And still figuring out how to sleep in the new place.
My internet access from home is yet to be set up; hopefully by the weekend I'll start posting regularly again.
