A belated post-holiday update 

It all started on the Sunday before Christmas.  Having returned to my apartment from my building's laundry center, I quickly discovered that I could not find my Blackberry for the life of me.  "Oh crap," I shrieked, when I realized that there was a slight possibility that my phone may have been included in my "whites" load.  And, sure enough, upon pulling my wet clothes out of the machine, my Blackberry landed on my foot.  Damn it.

Two days and a loaner phone later, J and I were off to visit my family in Texas.  And due to Sunday/Monday's hellacious blizzard, what was originally supposed to be a three-day escape turned in to a week-long vacation.  Just hours before our return flight on Sunday, we received an automated voice message informing us that our connecting flight from Chicago to La Guardia had been cancelled.  An American Airlines representative later confirmed that the earliest flight to NYC would be on Wednesday, December 29th.  "Three more days in Texas?" I exclaimed, "Wahoo!"  J, on the other hand, wasn't as thrilled. 

And with that, dear readers, I want to, first, wish you and yours the happiest New Year and, second, apologize for my recent disappearing act.  Be on the lookout for a mouth-watering roundup of my extended holiday in Texas.
