No photo, no recipe, just a heartfelt THANK YOU to my loyal subscribed readers who suffered through 1) isolation, 2) password annoyance, and 3) my sad mood upon closing down the blog except to registered readers.
Well... drum roll please... we're OPEN! It was so simple. I approached Avery's school through the most official of channels and no problem: they are completely happy for me to have my blog. It underscored the complete and utter insanity of the school official tangentially related to dear Avery's last educational institution just about a year ago. This lady, who was a complete stranger to all of us, flipped her lid to the extent that thanks to her threats to Avery's happiness and security (I wish I were making this up) I closed the blog to all but password-holders.
It sounds so simple now, but the hideous and cruel threats of those old days held sway over me for months, right up until now. My ever-sensible husband said, "Why not just ask how the school feels?" and so, heart in my throat, I did. And they were LOVELY. Understanding, almost uninterested, just calm and modern.
So here we are. You can send the link to your friends! You can recommend my blog to your mother. You can do anything you like because we're... open and ready for business. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking with me through the rough patches. You know who you are.
