A Note on My July Blogging Schedule

This July I’m not going to really be around here much.  That’s for one very important reason: I’m having an adult tonsillectomy.  I wasn’t able to have it as a child despite many desperate pleas and many, many rounds of antibiotics for tonsillitis so I’m having it now that my tonsils are severely affecting my quality of life.  My surgery is in early July and I’m told to budget at least two weeks off from work for recovery but we’ll have to see how things go.

But the important thing for our purposes right now is this: how will this affect The Mad Reviewer?

In short, not at all.  I’m busy scheduling up posts now so that during my recovery period there will be a post every day.  (And that’s part of the reason why I haven’t been posting anything lately; I’ve been working ahead.)  I’ll have all of the usual Lazy Sunday posts and the discussion posts in addition to my reviews.  Depending on how my muse is feeling in the next week or so I might even have a rant or an article for you guys.  The only thing that will be different is that I won’t be responding to comments super quickly.  I will try to get to all of them eventually but just know that if I don’t reply it’s not because I’m ignoring you deliberately or don’t value your comment; it’s just that it slipped through the cracks.

So thank you for your understanding and August will most definitely be back to normal (until I move to the city at the end of August)!

    I had my wisdom teeth, all 4, removed when I was in my 40s. I was *repeatedly* told, recovery is longer and more difficult with “advanced age”. Bah, 24 hours afterwards I was fine, just like the kids. Good luck. Lots of ice-cream, so I hear (I still have my tonsils).

      I had a similar experience last year when I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth out; I was just fine in a couple of days! 🙂 And as much as I generally hate ice cream, I am stocking up on it.
