Bowed but not Broken

Things have been a bit quiet around here lately. Sorry ’bout that (since I know you’re all heartbroken over this turn of events). While I’m not at liberty to divulge details (or even broad hints, for that matter), suffice it to say that the past few weeks have been…stressful. However, it looks like the universe has decided to take a break from throwing curveballs, and I, for one, welcome our new stress free overlords look forward to returning to the usual day-to-day concerns.

Prairie’s birthday was this past Friday, and we had a very pleasant day of relaxing at home, with one short jaunt out to see Flushed Away, which was hilarious and well worth seeing. Here at home, we watched Monster House, which was also extremely good (and wonderfully, surprisingly creepy at times), opened presents, and had a very good strawberry cream birthday cake (with chocolate covered strawberries on top, even). A few pictures have been uploaded.

Thanks to the answers to one of my last posts, and with many thanks to Jer‘s discount code, I’ve created an account with Dreamhost and will be moving my sites over that way…hrm. As soon as I can, actually, given that I’ve got this next month to do it. Oh, for the days of copious free time (whenever those days were, I think it’s been a few years since I had more than one or two such days in a row). Update: After having lain fallow for the past year or so, serving only to redirect to this address, is now up and running as a photography gallery. One domain down, two to go…

And I think that about brings us up to date. School continues, as does work, without much of any great note on either of those fronts. Prairie and I are continuing to work on nailing down the details for a trip to Alaska right around (technically just after) Christmas, and we’re also doing what we can to assist a friend in planning their move to the fair town of Seattle.

So, there we are. Some small amount of actual content. It had to happen at some point, right? ;)
