All in all I’d have to say we got off pretty easy. Things can be (and were) put back together. Nobody lost a finger or an eye or anything.
Tomorrow we’ll make an excursion to the grandparents’ for Independence Day festivities, and then the rest of the weekend should be fairly low-key. Hopefully it will afford us the time to get everything back to something approaching normal; the blog has been quieter than usual the past couple weeks because the mini-plague combined with the school/summer transition has had a profound unmooring effect. Maybe things will get back to normal next week. Maybe not! I’ll try to report on the developments, ordered or stochastic as they may be.
