Regular readers will have noticed a drop in posting volume recently. Myself, I have noticed a steady increase in the number of open browser tabs and flagged-yet-unread/unanswered emails with tips, questions, and press releases.
I usually try to tee up Daddy Type posts in the morning, so I can have the day cleared for work and the kids. But the last few weeks, we've been going on a lot of visits, tours, and interviews related to the kid's kindergarten next year, and it's kind of thrown our routine off something fierce. The cone of silence around the kid's preschool life will probably remain, though there's so much I want to get off my chest about this private school-hunting process, I'll probably trade it in for a cone of generality.
Meanwhile, keep dancing on the graves of skanky makeover mall chains, and if you've emailed me recently, give me another few days to get back.
