If you ever want to stress me out to the max, just slap some technical issues onto me. I’m not sure if you guys noticed, but Spoons was down for the better part of yesterday, and I’m about ready to rip my hairs out after all the time and energy I had to spend trying to get it back up.
We’ll chat more about that tomorrow, though, because right now I really just want to get this post up and go drown my frustrations in a bag of chocolate covered pretzels. Thank you guys so much for your patience, and I’ll see you tomorrow with an explanation and some good food!
