It's been a hectic, hectic week, and it's not quite done. Why is it that there must be a flurry of activity before a person goes on vacation? Yes, I'll be taking time off next week and (sigh)blogging will be extremely limited. Actually, that's probably a good thing in the long run because I'm getting strung out and I think it's starting to show in my writing. Work has been insane; Troglotyke #7's schedule has not yet settled down, which, with the Troglodytrix on the breast pump to save her sanity, has translated into a couple of nights this week for me with only about two hours of sleep; and like other times when I have issued a blogging advisory, I suddenly find myself with more things on which I want to blog than I have time to write, or can remember (why that is, too, I wonder). Here's a case in point on this last item.
I was checking who is linking to The Troglodyte because I'm working on a big update of the blogroll when I found a post on the Robinson Report that was wondering whether to add this humble blog to the roll (the decision was apparently in the negative). And then I saw a separate post on a lead article in the Sooner Catholic about pro-life legislation becoming law in Oklahoma with bi-partisan support. This was a story that I had actually seen in hard print because the Troglodytrix and I still receive the Sooner Catholic, even though it's been almost two years since we left Oklahoma (I miss it), and I had wanted to write about my reaction to the story. The law is a pleasant surprise because, when Gov. Brad Henry was running against Steve Largent in 2002, he did so as a pro-choice Democrat. Anyway, I guess that's one post I don't have to do anymore.
