Sorry, this week sort of got away from me. Normally I work my straight job M -- F, 8 to 5 with some work from home to stay on top of things. This past ten days or so, there was an enormous upshift in my department's work, and literally enough sick days and vacation days etc., that I was the only one working during much of the worst of the workload. When Tuesday rolled around and I was heading home for a few holiday days off, I didn't even realize it was Tuesday. So my apologies for missing Tactless Tuesday this week, and I'll be working to catch up on other blogs over the next few days.
