Mommy Blogs? Daddy Blogs?

Postings have been slim over here for awhile.  Not because I haven't wanted to, but simply because juggling work and life has given me no extra time to be inspired to write, or even to write un-inspiredly.

It's a lot, and I've come to no firm conclusions, except that I need more sleep. --- In related news, Patrick's blogs were featured in a Daddy Blog section of the Pioneer Press .  Check it out here .
