Hi all! I made it home safely last night, after several hiccups, adventures and an emotional breakdown that was a long time coming. I wrote up an entire big huge post about it all, only to have Blogger or Google Chrome freeze up on me. It's 2:40 AM, and I need to get to bed, having been going non-stop since this morning. So my apologies for a lack of post, but here are the links, at least! I'll be back on schedule come Monday.
(Also, I guest posted at the A-to-Z blog on Blog Hops/Fests & Memes, as part of the continuing Blogging Basics series for beginning bloggers).
Without further ado, links:
