And We're Going Down Again

You know that joke about how when God hears you have plans, He laughs? Yeah. That's not funny.

We're fighting more eldercare fires here at Chez Gauthier, this time for two 90-somethings at once. Because we are efficient. For the sake of sanity and because I can accept reality, I'm going to ease up on blogging (and my writing group, which I was just about to start attending again after last year's elder fire) for probably a couple of weeks, maybe more. Actually, I'm probably ditching most of the objectives for this year's Goal 5  for the same amount of time.

The Connecticut Children's Literature Calendar will be up at the end of the month.

I am aware that Google+ is on its way out and that we may need to remove some buttons from this blog. We'll get to it, when we get to it.

I tried to look for some arty firefighting image to use in this post, but it was taking too long. I have know...eldercare stuff to do.
