To all those that still occasionally visit this blog, hello! It’s been quite some time since I posted an update, and I want to let everybody know what’s going on.
First and foremost, I just want to let anybody that cares know that I’m not planning on quitting this blog, at least at the present moment. There has been a long absence, and I apologize for that. There is a reason for that, if a particularly poor reason.
So, why haven’t I been writing? Well, there’s lots of excuses that I could give, but the big reason is I just haven’t been motivated to write. I’m trying to get that picked back up, but it’s been difficult. It’s not that I haven’t been doing anything. I’ve been spending more time with my family, which I really enjoy. The importance of that was really driven home for me last fall when my Dad passed away in October. It’s so weird that when someone is available to answer questions, you rarely have any. It’s only after you’ve lost their attention that questions rise to the surface.
Stop Whining Stone!
I don’t mean for this to be a whiny article full of “Woe is me” type crap, but I do want to give everybody just a little bit of context as to what’s going on. I do miss the interaction that I got with people because of this blog, so I’m anxious to start doing it again soon. I’m hoping very soon. I’ve just got to get over that hump.
