OK, so it's only been 4 days. Not an unforgivable lapse in the blogosphere, nor an eternity by anyone's standards but my own.
I have often said that no trip goes unpunished, and last week's jaunt has been followed by the inpatient service. This alone keeps me running around town like a crazy woman, but I am still trying to catch up my laundry. Oh, and we have house guests this weekend.
I finally got those two manuscripts reviewed and off of my desk this morning. My daughter dropped by and we got her website with online portfolio organized to her satisfaction (click here to see her award-winning National Organ Donor Awareness Campaign).
But the real villain in this plot is a dead guy, Steig Larsson. On my way home last Saturday, I downloaded The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Yes, I may be the last person in the world to start these books. Why I haven't picked one up before now is unclear. Only pure exhaustion allowed me to put it down last night, a mere 13% before its ending.
[Note: When reading ebooks on my Kindle, I no longer keep track of pages; instead, the percent read neatly ticks up on the bottom of the screen. It's a new way to read.]
My plan is to finish the book tonight come hell or high water so my life can resume, including this blog.
Wish me luck. Of course, if I finish too early, I will just download the next book in the series. At least there are only 3.
