Okay, so here's the thing. This summer is busy beyond all reason.
It's like this: graduate, quit job, find job, work, camp, new niece, camp bus falls off the highway (seriously), back from camp, work, more camp, back from camp, work, travel, more travel, camp again maybe, other camp after that maybe, BAM! September. (For those of you following along at home, I am currently in stage "work", coming up on "more camp" tomorrow.)
And, you know, there's not a huge amount of time in there for blogging. Or rather, there is, but I find myself more and more unwilling to make it. This, coupled with the fact that I'm not reading much*, plus all of the above where I'll be travelling or in a cabin or otherwise unable to do that internet thing, has led me to declare the great blog hiatus of 2009. I will be posting regularly once again in the fall -- and of course, my archives are up to date and available for browsing.
*Actually, I'm reading a lot. But it's all War and Peace, and after a while there's not much to say about that. I don't want to write a bunch of "Still reading Tolstoy! A-yuhp!" posts and I suspect that few would want to read them.
Anyway. I hope that everyone has an excellent summer, and I look forward to jumping back in here in Sept.
