Thank you so much everyone for your kind words, emails and virtual hugs while I've been gone. You guys are great.
I'll try to be back to normal M-W-F schedule very soon with the occasional bonus post thrown in whenever the mood strikes.
Oh, I also realized that I succeeded in blogging for a solid year, every M-W-F with no days off. My 1 year blog anniversary was April 4th, before I needed to take this little break, and while my laptop was being manhandled*. Surprisingly, I did 2 posts that day, though they were really short 'cause they were both written on my phone.
*the laptop is now officially dead so I will be selling it for parts. Not even Dr. Frankenstein could resurrect that beast... Oh well, now I have a reason to buy a shiny new laptop!
