It’s been a pretty crazy week here, one for the family record books! For one thing, we all came down with Covid. Yes, after two years it finally got us. The kids are both fine, showing almost no symptoms, and I’ve only dealt with a slight cough and congestion. The wife got it the worst, unfortunately. She was cooped up in bed for a couple days, but she’s doing much better now. So thankfully that seems to have run its course in our household by now, and also that I was able to work from home while we were sick and recovering.

So that was the crazy start to the week. Now imagine my shock when I looked out the window this morning and discovered snow on the ground. In April. How truly delightful. I’m sure it will be gone by the time this post goes live, but goodness!

In other news, or non-news, still no word from the publisher about my submission. Hoping to hear from them soon with one kind of answer or another, but it’s also only been two weeks so I’m trying to stay patient and distract myself.

The best distraction so far has been sports. It’s a fun time to be a sports fan: the NFL draft is just a week and a half away, the NBA playoffs began this weekend and featured a couple exciting games already, and the new United States Football League (USFL) had its inaugural games this past weekend. The level of play was obviously nowhere near an NFL game, but it was good football, there were some incredible plays, and best of all the team I chose to root for, the New Orleans Breakers, won their game!

Between Covid sickness and a mid-April snow, we’ve all been doing pretty well. Our dog Mr. Frodo has his surgery this week, so hopefully that goes well for him. Next week I’ll give an update about that. I also finally finished watching The Last Kingdom on Netflix, so I’ll probably share some thoughts about that, then I’ll get back to my series on the The Lord of the Rings movies.

As always, thank you for being a loyal reader of this blog!

  1. Sorry to hear you all got hit with Covid, but I’m glad everyone is doing okay. And good luck to Mr. Frodo on his surgery!

    Regarding the USFL: I think this idea of using drone cameras is great. But how long before one crashes into a receiver running a route or something like that?

    1. I wondered about that myself, it would certainly be a problem haha. I’d think they’re careful to stay pretty far back or above those guys heads. That said I love the idea! I like that they’re just trying a bunch of new stuff to see what works and what’s popular.
