How was your weekend? Mine was busy, busy, busy — my new normal, I guess. But it was pleasant. We had a number of social plans that involved holding babies…

Here’s to a happy week in a more navigable apartment. It is the first week of classes on campus, so I am sure that more mayhem awaits me at work. But I’ll do my best to embody Del Griffith, quoted above, and go with the flow.
