Just a quick post to let you know about how to "post a comment" on our blog because some people have written us lovely missives that have instantaneously vanished into cyberspace without Jason or me having the chance to peruse your prose.
What's happening is that many of you have been getting e-mailed versions of our blog posts delivered to your inbox, but some of you are then trying to post a comment while you're there in your e-mail.
No can do. If you want to respond, you must go directly to our blogspot and enter your comments there. I know, I know. It's an extra step. But I assure you the opportunity to converse with moi and enjoy my scintillating wit will be so worth it. :)
Also, I know we haven't written in the last few days.... we've been foolish enough to decide to patch and repaint our kitchen since it was the only room downstairs that didn't get a complete makeover. It was looking rather shabby in comparison and, to be honest, confessed to feeling rather left out. There's nothing like an emotional kitchen to guilt one.
Besides it's FUN to cram your few remaining weeks before embarking to China chock full of "minor house projects." (If you look closely, you can see I'm giving you my best poker face.)
We thought some basic TLC would not be overly time-consuming (foolish mortals!) and might give a bit of a facelift (happily, true!). It's actually working! We didn't think it'd actually come out this swell! Hopefully I can upload some pictures later...
