Not What I Planned for This Weekend

Max was sick earlier this week, and now Brian is too. They both have some gastrointestinal explosiveness disorder that means Jen was up and down most of the night with them, we need to do laundry and we’ll be fueling both kids with Pepto©, kaopectate™, Sprite© and dry toast all weekend.\
I just got home from an early-morning grocery store run to stock up on those things, plus caffeine to keep me awake.\
We were going to have so much fun this weekend… Now I’m off to do the dishes and start some laundry.

  1. Hi. Apologies for being offtopic, but some people at ficlets are trying to reach you…
    We’re worried about’s future.
    The domain is still listed as registered in your name, but it is set to expire on October 31st of this year.
    Can you let us (the users on the website) know if the domain name will be renewed?
    Is the page managed by AOL now?
    Can we reach someone there who will have some idea what we’re talking about
    and will be willing to take some responsibility for the site? After all, it’s a novel technology, it’s still thriving, it’s got decent traffic; it should be just the kind of thing AOL wants to promote.
    Any information you might have, would be greatly appreciated by the Ficlet community.
    Thanks and regards, and again, sorry for posting an off-topic comment on your blog.

  2. Thank you so much for letting me know that you renewed Ficlets for one more year. Truly awesome news, though I’m sorry to hear you’re sick – get well soon!
