I just wanted to apologize to my readers, the few that I have anyway (thank you for sticking around--you are so appreciated!). I've been neglecting my blog because life has been kicking me in the butt lately, but I have not forgotten about it. On a somewhat related note, my admiration of dedicated bloggers-who-happen-to-be-moms-of-small-children has gone through the roof. How do they do it?? How do they have the time and energy?? Perhaps I'm just a wimp, but it's all I can do just to remember to maintain my own hygiene these days.
