A 24-hour nap later...

I am back in the land of the living (and writing after seeing that last post of mine). It was a wild and hectic weekend, but it is completed now. It will probably take a few days for me to feel rested, but at least I am back in the saddle a little. Thank you all for your encouragement and support.
