In case you haven't noticed...we've been away, and the truth of the matter is that I really wanted to let you guys know before we left that we were heading out West for a much-needed break.
That being said, I am married to a cop.
If you're married to a cop, you're already chuckling. But just in case you need a little more info, our conversation before we left went a little something like this:
Stella: Do you think I should post on the blog that we're going away? I mean, I'm not sure if I'll be able to blog at the hotel...
Rocco: Sounds like a great idea, Stell. In fact, while you're at it, why don't you hang a great big banner outside and let the whole neighborhood know that our house is empty and that whatever's left is there for the taking? Better yet: change the outgoing message on the answering machine; that way you can let the whole wide WORLD know that we're gone, and that all burglars are welcome!
Stella: Okay, OKAY!
So...needless to say...from the Paranoia Office came the dictate, and now I am happy to say that we're back, safe and perhaps a bit sounder, having had a whole six days together without work, other people, stress (not counting the airport) and anything that even closely resembled healthy food.
More details to follow!
