So once again, I must apologize to the handful of people who occasionally visit my blog.

I started posting about my (now-not-so-) recent trip to Chicago …

And then promptly disappeared from the blogosphere.

I admit it: I have poor time-management skills which prevented me from getting my affairs in order and my travels written before leaving the country for most of September.

My bad.

But I’m back. I’ve almost gotten my unpredictable, often-frustrating middle-class life schedule ALMOST back to its normal rhythm (which is more like a palpitation than an actual steady rhythm, but I digress).

So posts are forthcoming. Please bear with me.
