My absence is nothing to be concerned about... I haven't lost my mind, been institutionalized, or decided to let this blog grind to a halt.
We'll be making the trip to Troy, NY (12 - 16 hrs, via conversion van, with 5 kids... God help us) for Randy's funeral. We'll be out of town until Friday evening. I doubt I'll have time to do much blogging while we're there, so there probably won't be anything new here until the 21st or 22nd.
Meanwhile, someone please feed and water the dog and check our mail please. And in the event of another storm, please check to see that the patio furniture is still secured.
Wish me well, pray that no one goes on a rampage in the van during the trip, and that the van makes it there and back with no troubles... it is a 1992 afterall!
