The story of the last two days has been racing my wife to see which of us can fall asleep quicker after putting the boy to bed when I get home from work. There has been no time for bloggery. There has barely been time for conversation. It’s 7:36 as I write these words; I got home with the boy at around 4:30, she was home minutes afterwards, and I think I’ve been asleep in my recliner for the entire intervening period of time.
This weekend, I shall finish the final story in Tales from the Benevolence Archives, which is still Coming Very Soon. Then I shall work for Saturday and Sunday, as is my recent tradition, and then– wait for it– I’m on vacation for a week, marking the first time in my adult life where I’ve chosen when a vacation was going to take place, which is kind of fascinating. We’re visiting friends in Louisville and Kansas City and are probably swinging by my brother’s place in Chicago on the way back home. There will be a lot of driving, but I’m excited about it, although I’m sure I’ll get cold feet and try to cancel the whole thing at least once between now and then.
I am seeking guest bloggers for that week, by the way, so if you have had a piece in mind that you’d like to share, feel free to hit me up in comments and let me know about it. There are at least five days available– Monday to Friday of next week– and in the unlikely event that I get more people interested than that, I’ll either double some days up or fill a weekend day or two.
