. . . of laundry! You know how that goes, when you've been away for a week!
I wanted to thank everyone for the comments left while I was away. While the washer and dryer are running, I'm slowly going through the last week of comments here and catching up on everyone else's blogs too.
And a couple other thoughts about comments. First off, Karen suggested that I turn off word verification, and I do agree that it's a nuisance, although it generally doesn't stop me from leaving comments on other blogs. But not knowing a whole lot about these matters, I'm a little worried about getting too much spam. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
The second thought about comments: this is just a silly little confession, but it's been bugging me! As you may know, I was an elementary school teacher for many years. And if you've ever dealt with elementary-school-aged children, you know that they have a well-developed sense of justice: everything has to be FAIR. So, I always feel like if I reply to one comment, I have to reply to ALL the comments! Isn't that silly?! And sometimes I can't think of anything to say, or the comment doesn't really warrant a reply - but I feel bad nonetheless if I "skip" someone! So I just want you all to know that I read all the comments, and love getting them. But I'm going to try to let myself off the hook a little in terms of replying. I generally do like to reply when I've got something to say, but I also feel like replying when I really don't have anything to say is a little . . . dorky.
New posts after I've caught up a little!
