It was crazy around here this last week. So crazy that I could have used an Elizabethian Collar. You know, those upside down lamp shade things dogs wear around their necks to prevent them from licking their wounds after surgery?

Because I had multiple deadlines with content for an online course membership site and a book to read for a review deadline and guest posts to write, not to mention things like a vet visit for the cat and several other blog posts to edit.
Why am I telling you this?
