My unintentional hiatus from blogging should be coming to an end soon. Turns out that traveling across nine time zones in short order, standing or walking for hours on end and not getting enough water and sleep doesn't exactly work for my poor legs.
After getting back from Las Vegas I had a fairly painful flareup similar to them one in Paris and spent a lot of time off my feet while trying to catch up on work. And getting more and more apathetic. But things are starting to quiet down a bit and I'm thinking of getting back into the fray, although I'm not sure in what direction this blog will go. One thing that I noticed during my down time is that political blogging has become tedious (to write and to read). Perhaps this is because world affairs are tedious, and maybe the bloggers are just reflecting that, but for the first time since I started this blog I am reading or watching the news and the blogs and finding it difficult to care.
But there are other things to write about. I have yet to put down much about our trip, so I'll probably start there. The garden has been planted, and Pittsburgh is experiencing something that we haven't had in a while: a true Spring. For the last decade or so, maybe longer, the weather has tended to go right from Winter into Summer. Not this year. The temperatures are pleasant and we are enjoying more sun than usual.
There will be some doctoring about my legs which I am not looking forward to, and some changes may be coming to the Bloggledygook household. Things are in a state of crisis here, and when I mean crisis, I mean in the traditional sense of the word: a crossroads, a point of decision. This has lead to more than the usual rumination, which accounts for at least some of the lack of posting here.
More details as they show themselves, but for now, I will beg patience and pardon and get to a meeting.
