OK, I came home to find my home computer had caught a virus again. Have no idea how. Still have Pete's laptop (which enabled me to communicate from the hospital) so I'm going to try to get it connected later today. (Am currently posting from a friend's workplace.)
I'm also apparently having complications with my new medicine, since I am having a sustained attack of what my Grandma Vanderboegh used to call "the scoots" and my skin is hypersensitive and feels like it has third-degree sun burn. That's more information than you wanted to hear, no doubt, but I offer it in explanation of slow posting in the immediate future.
Needless to say, between Thanksgiving in Ohio, being on the road and my hospital stay I have not written more than 20 words on Absolved. (Although I did resolve one major conflict between chapters.)
Anyway. I'll have more later.
