You know you've let too much time elapse between posts when:
a) You become AFRAID of even looking at your blog.
b) You can't remember your blog's username and password.
c) Almost two full calendar years have elapsed.
d) Oh, heck. All of the above.
So here's the plan: play a bit of catch-up the rest of this month, then dive in full force with the New Year. Yeah. Sounds good.
