Plodding along

Hi there! No new posts from us because there isn't much going on. Things are very slow during the time between Christmas and New Year's, and we are just plodding along through the days. I wanted to post anyway, because I keep checking various other blogs I like and coming up dry. Now, technically those who check on us can't say the same thing...though we know in reality we're giving you nothing new to chew on. Next week should bring some news. We have a few appointments and some big phone calls (waiting for businesses to reopen after the holidays), so keep an eye out for new things on our end. For now, we'll just keep doing our thing and counting the days until New Year is past. Why so? The locals have an affection for small-scale fireworks that they have indulged in for days already. Intermittent loud explosions through the evening and night hours do get a bit old after a while, though it's nothing compared with New Year's Eve itself when we've been warned to tape our doorslot mailbox shut so revelers can't toss small firecrackers into our house to have them explode in our entryway. Excellent.

Hey at least you got a warning about the fireworks. And at least it's not that lovely New Orleans tradition of shooting guns up into the air. I'll be hanging out with the 'rents and two partiers who won't even come close to making it to midnight. ;)It should be interesting. I really thought I would be able to find somewhere to go New Year's Eve here in Chicago, but that plan fell through, as my mission to meet cute guys here in the Windy City has fallen completely flat. Oiy!!!!!!

Hope you, Markus, Ellie and BK2 have a great New Year's and watch out for any errant firecrackers....
