    If there’s one thing T&S needs, it’s more delusions of grandeur.

    Welcome, Kathryn!

    For the record: Kathryn is the one who described her blog as “delusions of grandeur” not I.

    That link was the first one I clicked on, Nate — one taste of her self-deprecating humor was all I needed to know that her posts will be a treat to read.

    “survival housekeeping”

    That’s a great phrase. And welcome.

    Anyone who practices survival housekeeping is dear to my heart.

    Welcome, Kathryn, from a lurker who came out of hiding to acknowledge that phrase.

    It’s an honor to be here. Thanks for the warm welcome!

    Mi, let’s start a club.

    Nate, didn’t know where else to put this, but congrats on being published in the Sept. Ensign, or should I say “Kudos”.
