That’s what I’m surrounded by: chaos. Our worldly possessions arrived at our new house in Waco last Friday, and since then we’ve been unpacking madly. We like the new house and the new neighborhood very much, though we have twenty-five years of mental and biomechanical habits to unlearn and new ones to acquire. My biggest challenge right now is figuring out what all the light switches do. Well, that and figuring out what to do with forty boxes of books….

Plus, I have less than 24 hours to turn in the edited proofs of my biography of the Book of Common Prayer. So expect no further posts today and for posting to be somewhat inconsistent for the next week or so. Ciao, y’all!
