Dear readers, please forgive my protracted absence. For the past few months, work consumed much more of my time and energy than I’d anticipated, and since I work from home, I avoided my computer in general and writing in particular when I wasn’t working on client projects. I did take a couple of weeks to just decompress, and I’m glad I did. Now I’m ready to pick up with my blog again and at least TRY to be consistent about posting — we’ll see how that goes. 😉 Many thanks to all of y’all who’ve continued to read and post comments, even while I was “gone” — I’ve got several comments in my queue that I need to post and respond to, so please bear with me as I get back up to speed. XOXO
