Updates of a Mundane Sort

Many apologies for any of you subscribed to this blog, as you may have been inundated with a long scroll of archived entries popping up in your feed. When I transferred everything over to the new site, all of my photos went haywire or disappeared. While I felt a lit bit bonkers for taking the time to go through well over a hundred entries to tidy everything up, I was having a hard time with the idea of a big part of this website being such a mess. It would have been like moving into our new house and setting up every room except one, and leaving that last room a jumbled pile of boxes, bags and whatnot.

I decided to approach this somewhat tedious project as a virtual scrapbooking endeavor. There are a number of stories, images and musings I've posted since 2005 that I would like to keep intact, so this website can be a fairly comprehensive overview of my work over the past nearly eight years. I might pull some of my favorite entries over from my previous blog over the next few weeks as well, as many entries didn't even make it over to the new site this past August. The nice thing about that project is that it can be done slowly, over time. For the photo formatting on the entries that are already over here, it felt better to power through them and get everything in good working order once and for all.

In other news, our Santa Monica house sold (holla!), and all will be final in exactly one week. We're still tying up all the remaining loose ends down there, and once it is all finished we will release a huge sigh of relief. It was a good house, that one. It was a good house.
