I'm not dead, but thanks for asking. No, I'm still here, at least in theory. In reality, my presence is mediated by a) continued special ed insanity that breaks my heart because it has been hurting my kid, but happily I think we're almost at a point where we can feel confident that they're through messing around with him. Then there's b) the job, which gets crazier every time I turn around, but at least it's still entertaining, that is when I'm not having a nervous breakdown. Help is on the way there too in the form of additional staffing. Finally there is c) my regular life, which is really chaotic enough as is.
So you might well imagine that I have much to report including a sweater,some new projects, a new-to-me car, and the departure of a wheel. But right now I'm stealing a few moments on the Treo at McD's playspace (desperate times, school vacation day, partner away on business...you do the math). I do promise to try to post, but can't promise when.
