“How Can I Miss You If You Won’t Go Away”

back from hiatus

 

In case you hadn’t noticed, I haven’t been around in a few months.  Like most things, once you change a routine or habit, it’s very hard to get back into it.  I have faithfully written a blog post at least once a week (sometimes more) for several years.  Around January, my normal routines started to change, and it was very hard to get back into a groove, but here I am and hope to stay.
