Are you surprised to see something here? That is, if anyone is even checking anymore. If you are, thanks for sticking with me despite the extended absence.
If you were wondering about the happy occasion that prompted this post, it is because I am the proud owner of a brand spanking new laptop. When I was laid off from my last job, almost 2 years ago, I had to turn in the work laptop that I had grown to accustomed to having at my disposal. Even though we have a perfectly good desktop, for some reason my mind goes blank when I sit down and try to write sitting at the desk. But sitting in a comfy spot next to my sweetie in the evenings after the kids have gone to bed with a laptop in my lap and the words and inspiration seem to come more freely.
While I don't want to make any promises I won't be able to keep, I hope that you'll be hearing from me more often.
