This is just a note to say I’m back.
My blogging vacation was great. I sat on the porch, read Harry Potter, read a few New Yorkers (now I’m only behind by 3 weeks!), watched the grass grow, and generally took a true and thorough vacation. I’ve got a hefty to-do list here at work, including slogging through email and attending triply my normal load of meetings, but even so I’m not dreading the day, so I guess the vacation worked it’s magic (though I wouldn’t say no to about 3 or 4 more months of it).
