Happy Thanksgiving

I wish all of you a happy Thanksgiving in advance, as we are traveling to see my California sisters and brother and their families, and one of Amy's four cousins. Traveling early in order to avoid Wednesday's traffic (though our experience last year going to Amarillo Texas had its own set of problems as well - namely a weather-related sleepover in Dallas).

I'd also like to explain a bit of the slow blogging: Rebecca is going through a growth spurt right now (she is 2-10/12 years old) which is really beautiful to watch, and I'm spending less time on the computer. She is talking much now, and doing more, including helping with the simpler things to do around the house, things like feeding the cats (yes, we've adopted two kittens since General Cat died in August), helping me put recycling things in sorted sacks, and she's potty-training. So all that, and the discipline I have of not staying on the computer late at night (personal discipline of mine is waking early and having the computer on late doesn't support that), and that I can't even access most of the blogs on my blogroll from work (not that anyone should be spending excessive time reading blogs at work of course), make it so that I have real limited time to read other's blogs, and not much time left over to write. So, the bottom line is that blogging is temporarily very limited, and will likely be so through Christmas, though I am going to keep visible posts on the frontpage.

So, again, a happy Thanksgiving to everyone, safe travel and a blessed time with family and friends.
