Actually we've been back. But remember how I decided to vacation in the middle of my finals - yeah, so I went to my last class, turned in one paper, and came down with shingles (yuck). Then Mom and Chip came for the weekend. I am now (at this very moment) taking a break from editing that last paper (which was due yesterday) to give you a preview of our trip to the Cote d'Azur. Oh, how I wish I were still there.
