Oy. Two weeks ago was an unexpectedly busy week and I didn’t actually mean to disappear but that’s just what ended up happening. Last week I was at the beach with my family and bless me, I legitimately went into the week thinking I’d sit down some afternoon and write up some posts to schedule during the week to make up for the disappearance. Jokes. Beach week is for going to the ocean twice a day, reading, sleeping, and eating too much. There’s just no room for blogging in all that vacationing!

Life is expensive and also we only have one bathroom which gets crowded when three people are involved), but man am I tired.
