P.S. -- Thank you, Blogger for MESSING UP the most amazing blogging week of the year.  I have no idea if the posts I wrote before your breakdown will resurface, but I'm trying to remain hopeful.  Hope is a theme around here, ya know.  Anyway, Blogger, we all have meltdowns from time to time.  We've been together for nearly 3 years, and this is the first time you've caused such mayhem.  I'll forgive you, but please try to keep this stuff to a minimum in the future.  It's embarrassing.  Thanks :)
