It's been a busy couple weeks, with the hallmark chaos trailing in the wake of time. As far as I can tell, this really extends back to the end of vacation in August. We got back from Europe and - shock of shocks - we were exhausted! Hanna, fortunately, had a couple weeks to recover while between grad classes and before the public school year began. I was not so fortunate, and really suffered the toll ever since (well, until now, anyway). This leads to what I consider to be the opposing concept from the movie title "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" (see movie info here). Allow me to attempt to articulate without rambling endlessly for hours on end (oops, too late!).
