It’s been well over a month since I’ve posted with any regularity. Sure, I’ve dropped a bon mot or two, and slung a bit of knowledge in the past 5 weeks, but I’ve been quite rare in these parts. Here’s the Reader’s Digest version.
The first week in April I was at a conference in New Orleans. Great food, great people, expensive!!! I would have announced it in case any near-NO dopers wanted to meet me so they could laugh amongst themselves later, but conditions were such that I wasn’t sure how long I could stay in NO, so I couldn’t commit to any plans…
The situation was… Mrs. Spritle had been going into early labor off and on since January. The due date was April 28 and she was scheduled for a C on the 18th. With the problems she was having, there was a real chance she might go into labor while I was away and I’d have to jet home ASAP.
All was well and there was no jetting home quickly for me. I returned to work the second week of April and had two huge projects that had to be finished before I left on the 17th. Lots of work and lots of overtime and no time to post.
Ethan Brady was born on April 18th!! I’ve spent the last two and a half weeks on “paternity leave” and have had the most wonderful time not sleeping. I just returned to work this Monday (Mrs. Spritle’s Birthday) and have been pretty busy catching up.
That’s all. You may now go read some “real” threads.
