I hate blog posts apologizing for not posting, so this won't be one.
Nor do I have a proper post in me now.
But there are a couple of things I think you should know:
1. It's CD1. Yeah.
Not sure what the next course of action will be, but at the very least we will probably switch donors, since we need to order more anyway. More on that later.
Also, I need to do my taxes so that we can see if we can even afford to order more.
2. Mrs. Spock made me cry. Practically everything's been making me cry lately, so that's not much of an accomplishment per se, but she made my cry in a good way. She sent me the ...I'm looking for a word, and all I'm coming up with is "bestest"... BESTEST! sock-gram package! It arrived when I was really at the very bottom of feeling crappy about everything, and it was just the very thing. Pictures to come.
3. A toddler I hang out with has been read somewhere -- I think in a Moomintroll book, but hers are in Danish, and I can only read the third-rate, adulterated Danish we call "English" -- about creatures cheering one another up by kissing sad creatures on the nose. She has become a dutiful practitioner of this technique, which is predictably sloppy and surprisingly effective.
