So, things have been quiet here for a while. I have a new job, which has taken some adjustment. It's a big step up but an order of magnitude more complex, so most of my spare time and energy has been expended there.
However, today I realized I've been gone too long, when my 3 1/2 year old daughter was pretending to be a rocket ship. She was orbiting my wife (a planet) and my wife asked her if Daddy was a moon. The response was "No, Daddy's the Big Dipper."
Big Dipper?? If my own daughter thinks I'm any kind of Dipper, I've been gone way too long.
