Yes, TW and I are still alive but we’re barely functioning lately. Between TW’s continued illness, her back problems, my inability to get Mr. Happy happy, my inability to stay awake for fun activities at night and our general feelings of blah, it’s been quiet at the MD household. We seem to be out of rhythm and are having trouble getting back into sync. Unfortunately, we’ll probably get into sync just as the kids arrive home for Christmas break. Sigh.
