Best Laid Plans...

The best laid schemes of Mice and Men oft go awry, And leave us nothing but grief and pain, For promised joy!-Robert Burns

Well... I had every intention of banging away on the daily Winterspring quests for the mount and continuing to grind out heroics to actually reach the cap of 7 randoms in a week.  It wasn't to be.

I just completed my Winterspring mount the other day -- a full month after I hoped to.
I've had to miss a few raid nights: hotel WiFi latency kills you, as does unexpected visits to the ER for a child.
What was a frightfully empty business schedule has all of a sudden overflown, and I'm working first-year associate attorney hours again.

Where's WoW in all of this?  Backburner, sadly.

I keep hearing rumbles of a new patch -- and I've not had any time to read up on it to see what's coming.  Illidian has me pegged -- I am NOT prepared.

I'm hoping to get things straightened out. I'm hoping to get time online - in blogs and in the client.  I'm hoping against logical thought to queue for a random heroic as DPS and not wait 50 minutes for a fail group that disbands on the first trash mobs.

Hoping your game is treating you better than mine is me!
