I can't believe it's been a year since I posted. I apologize to everyone who's been looking in on me, I know you expected better. I expected better from myself.
I offer no excuses, but I hope this helps explain the hiatus- my youngest was diagnosed with autism. We've still got a long way to go, but after a great deal of intensive therapy he's finally starting to show some improvement and I think I'll have time to devote to the blog again.
