I am still alive, but school, work, and a major kitchen project is keeping me from devoting my scant leisure time to writing. In general, if I have taken a break at all it has been to watch college baseball. I’ve made all but one home game this season, though I’ll miss tonight’s game because of my evening class. It remains to be seen whether or not I can get enough school work done to attend this weekend’s home series. I hope so.
