Weekly Update 22

Kyle and I are in Chicago!  We left on Friday and are returning home on Wednesday.  I think posting will go as usual but I won’t be responsive to comments or commenting on other blogs until we get back.  I have enjoyed reading all your comments, particularly on my thoughts on my “class,” and I’ll respond to them as soon as I find some time.


We are unusually unprepared for this vacation because of all the car-repairing and apartment-hunting we’ve done in the last couple weeks, so we’re kind of flying by the seat of our pants day-by-day.  I’ll share the trip with you more fully (including the $$, of course) a bit after we return.
