No, for real, I'm back!

If you recall my last post, you know that I am excited to get back to blogging after taking a 3-week break from blogging every day in December. The only niggle with that plan is that my last post occurred two weeks ago. It seems that at least one member of my family (and sometimes up to three at a time) has been sick since that post came out. It's not quite a valid excuse, but it's certainly a distraction from the concept of sitting down to blog. And, though I do care about those of you who follow along with my posts, I care about my family more.

That said, I just finished a wonderful book called An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth by Col. Chris Hadfield, who has been to space three times. It's an interesting mix of genres - at some points it's more like an autobiography; at other times it feels more like a collection of practical advice. There are also moments that fall straight into the category of trivia (how to properly urinate in space, anyone?) The book deserves its own review, so I'll be publishing that sometime next week.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know that I'm still alive, my family is still alive, and I really appreciate your joining me as I attempt to do creative things and share them with the internet.

See you next week! (assuming nobody gets sick again)
