So, I felt ridiculously embarrassed by how self-pitying I came across in my long-winded blog entry of a few weeks ago. My subsequent regret at prying open the ole emotional vault and letting it all spill out like icky entrails led me to decide that my sole recourse was to put the whole mess under lock and key. But, hey, where's the fun in that? I hope that you can forgive me for my earlier self-indulgence, and that you'll please keep reading. And, comment every once in awhile, even just a hello, so I know that you're out there tuning in when you're able and/or interested.
