Today, it was cold and bleak and gross. That’s why I’m not writing this post until now – I was trying to think of something fun and happy to say, but I just couldn’t do that when it was raining and sleeting outside. It’s supposed to be spring here, dammit!

This week was generally very slow and unexciting. I spent most of my time working and sleeping, to be honest. It was just one of those weeks, you know?

It just happened to work out this year that the flight was super cheap to Mexico for the break, so that’s where we went.
