Sorry there was no post last week readers. I found out that having no air conditioning in my house on a hot, humid Michigan day; a desire to clean out the dust bunnies that have taken up residence under the bed and everywhere else they find cozy; and that my metabolism is held together by a little yellow pill all conspired to
