Weekly Round-Up: Sister-In-Law Visit

I don’t know what has happened in your week, but I’ve been in the midst of a visit from my sister-in-law.  It’s been an interesting visit, to say the least, but as with anything that causes your schedule to be put off (to say nothing of having an extra guest at home), it…complicates matters.  Even more so because we were expecting her to arrive a week from Thursday rather than this past Monday, and staying for five days instead of thirteen…

Still, things have been going pretty well for this visit, which is always a good thing when you are dealing with more family members than usual.  Other than having my already off-kilter work schedule (including blogging and so forth) being thrown off more than usual with additional people around to increase the complications, it’s been a pretty good visit.  In any event, if I hope to keep up with everything in blogoverse, I’ll need to read regularly and be sure to share the good articles, such as these:
