Birthday Cake

So, a brief rundown of my life in the past week goes:
  • Prepare for birthday party for 4-year-old
  • Host party for something like 15 kids (and their parents
  • Clean up after party
  • Likely because of someone at the party, come down with a cold on the same day my wife gets a cold
  • And because of the cold and my own kids, get three consecutive nights of next to no sleep
I don't typically say a lot about my personal life here, but the week-plus absence made it feel worth doing. I'm mostly over the cold already, and hopefully I'll be able to get more writing, more critiquing, more revising, and more blogging over the next week. For now I'll leave you with this picture of the cake my wife made for the party:
