Uh, yeah, new content is becoming increasingly rare around here, innit? I'm hoping that will change here soon--I have ideas! Honest!--but first, for regular readers (both of you!), a bit of an explanation for the silence.
First of all, there's Janie, who really deserves to be mentioned in more than passing, but for now I'll just say that when there's a sweet, warm presence sharing time with you, it makes it harder to excuse slipping away to a keyboard to tap out a few hundred words on whatever the hell it is I usually write about. So there's that.
Also, beloved puppy Isabella is suffering from a not entirely diagnosed medical condition. She's mostly fine (and adorable, of course), but trying to get to the bottom of it will involve spending money I don't really have, which brings on financial stress, which is already triggering something vaguely resembling depression, an old friend I'd hoped to never again encounter, but there you go.
Anyway, posting will presumably resume on a more regular basis at some unspecified point in the future. Or, you know, not. That's about as solid a promise as can be made right now, and hey, you can hold me to it. Or, again, not.
