I futzed and fought with the previous post - blogger tried to make the text so tiny I couldn't see it with a microscope. Somehow, in all that, comments got turned off. I'm sorry, and I'm also not going to bother trying to turn them back on. I'm afraid of throwing off that precarious balance of getting the formatting right and actually being able to READ the post. I know I can get into the HTML and fix all, but I'm really feeling lazy here.

Jenean got my HSKS package yesterday. I wish I could have taken longer getting it to her (meaning I wish I could have had a few more justified shopping trips) but I was so afraid it would get lost in the jumble of moving so I sent if off to her.
