Alabama's had some nasty weather lately, including some storms that brought some tornadoes, knocked out some of our electronics, and knocked down some of our trees. We've been without internet and I have no idea when that will be remedied. I'm doing what I can using phone data, but everything takes 10 times longer and is just hella frustrating.
I just didn't want anybody to think I was lying around sipping mint juleps and deliberately ignoring them. It's just been nonstop fun since I landed back in Alabama (a few weeks earlier than I'd planned due to a family emergency) and was met with a raging flea infestation and a dryer that decided to commit suicide right when I needed to wash All The Things All The Time. (And my tentative declaration of victory against the fleas was a little premature, heh...)
But I am going to stay put -- no more traveling -- until I'm actually, truly caught up. The working-from-two-states-without-a-reliable-vehicle-of-my-own thing was, bluntly, a disaster, so I'll be operating out of Alabama only for now.
And hopefully there'll be some good news about internet in the next few days, God willing.
