Mea Culpa

I must apologize for the absence of a post earlier today.

Here’s my excuse: I usually write my blogs on Monday, then schedule them to go live on Tuesday morning. As my eldest leaves for college this Saturday, our house is in upheaval this week, with packing, shopping, last-minute visits to see people she won’t see again for months, etc.

A couple weeks ago a friend suggested I write a post about what it means to write gothic mysteries. I thought it was a great idea, so I scheduled the post for today, thus forcing myself to make time to write it on a day I knew I would be very busy.

And I had every intention of writing the post last night.

But then my dog got sprayed by a skunk in the backyard and with the bathing, the tomato juice rinse, and the cleaning up and attempting to deodorize the house (didn’t work), my blog not only slipped completely to the back of my mind, but somehow fell off the face of the earth completely.

So please forgive me. I will write that post about gothic mysteries, but it won’t be for a few weeks.

Have a great day.

Until next time,
