I have not crawled under a rock and disappeared. I have unfortunately had some horrid strain of this cold/flu thing that is going around and my throat frequently feels like it's going to seal itself shut. And to add insult to injury grades were due this week and in some tragically karmic twist I had 3 art projects that ended up due on the same day. That's something like 345 projects to grade in 2 days. Excellent planning on my part. On the bright side I won't have anything to grade for quite some time.
Next week is spring break and we are heading out for a family vacation. We haven't taken a real vacation since before Evey was born so this will be fun. We are heading to Big Cedar Lodge and Branson, MO. It should be a good, mellow trip and some much needed family time. It's been a long year with so many ups and downs that we could use some quality family time.
