I haven’t done one of these update posts in a few weeks, partially because of travel and partially because the PF blogosphere was pretty quiet over the holidays! But posting and commenting seems to be back at full speed, so this update is as well.
Pretty quiet week for us! We saw Jekyll and Hyde at our local theater this week, but it wasn’t the greatest. We had a lovely date night in on Friday – we cooked dinner together and then watched Harry Potter 7 Part 2. We watched (on TV) our university’s basketball team lose on Saturday so we’re pretty upset about that, but we knew it would be a challenging game.
