Where did I go?

Oh yes.  Zee blog.  Zee blog!  Christ on a cracker.

(I realize that possibly, as an agnostic/atheist/non-Christian, I may not be allowed to say “Christ on a cracker”.  But I do believe that Jesus was probably a real person, if not a miraculous one, and, as such, may have rested on a cracker at one point or another.  As one does.)

Where did I go?  Uh, nowhere, really.  I went to bed at 8:30pm every night for three fucking weeks straight, is where I went.  The Un Mom household has been not a whole lotta fun this summer.  The shorty brought some gross phlegmy cough home from daycare, and then another one, and Alfred hadn’t gotten over the first one so he developed pneumonia.  The second gross phlegmy cough hung around in my head for 2 weeks, and decided to become a sinus infection.  It hasn’t actually gone away but I’m staying awake past 8:30pm out of sheer stubbornness.

Somewhere in the middle of all that coughing and whining, Alfred’s dad passed away.  I had an occasionally contentious relationship with my father-in-law, but I always knew him to have a good heart and a lot of love.  I’m not sure any eulogy I could write would really do him justice, so I’ll just say that he will be very, very missed.

So that’s where I’ve been.  I’m sure something else has happened in the last four weeks.  I know I bought some groceries.

How about you?
