hello friends! am back, at long last.
it has been just over three months, hard to believe. my absence actually had *nothing* to do with my nephew, as my life was hijacked the very next day after the post below... but more on that later.
(i'm such a tease!)
for now, to everyone who has commented and read and continued to subscribe: thank you with all my heart. you are kind and patient and wonderful. am going to put together a little getting-back-in-the-saddle- in-2009 post, and come back to tell my (inevitably long and melodramatic) stories over the next few days.
happy new year to all!
