Exploring the world through words.
Yep...I hear you. Pretty much the same here, minus the power outage and replacing the speech with freshman paper conferences. Hang in there! Stop by for a visit when you can--I enjoy our chats :)
Wow - 12 hours without power is a long time! Good luck with all you're doing.
Well hello there! I'm happy you wandered by. Make yourself comfortable and I'll pour the tea. Cake? Chocolate? Take your time, meander, and don't forget to join in. Be sure and check back later! I respond to all comments here :)
