If you don't really care to read about my personal life but would like to know something that impacts the site, skip down a few paragraphs, to the one that starts with the sentence in bold.
Ok, if you lost your excuse decoder ring, here's why I haven't been writing the Frosty Mug for the last four days:
Thursday: Internet was out
Friday: See below.
Today I start a month of vacation. I took a month of vacation for a variety of reasons, but I decided to come home to Wisconsin for 2 weeks for two reasons. One, I had only been home for less than 24 hours since last June. Second, I have a puppy to train.
Two weeks ago, I was given a 8-week old miniature cashshund that I've since named Gorman. He's adorable but also a little fireball. This morning when I was trying to write he was getting into all kinds of untold mischief. This afternoon, while I'm trying to write, he's out of sight and quiet...and that scares me even more.
Anyway, to get to the point, I'm putting the Mug on indefinite (but hopefully temporary) hiatus until I get back to the point where I feel like I can do it consistently again and at the level I've grown accustomed to (slightly above terrible).
I'll probably still be lurking from time to time, but not as often as usual, as I struggle to train a puppy, enjoy the summer and get the most out of a vacation before being back behind my desk on July 7.
Take care, and thanks for reading,
