Apologies for my absence in the virtual world lately. Life recently intervened as it so often does and forced me to step away from blogging to take care of other, more pressing things. Twitter, Facebook, other social media, and anything that isn't immediately necessary have also taken a backseat. Things are starting to settle down, and I am slowly, steadily making my way back into the blogosphere.
I do want to take a moment and say thank you to everyone out there who has asked about my dad or expressed concern in any way. I've probably come off as very nonchalant and sometimes even unappreciative of your well-wishing, but I want you to know that I do appreciate it very much. You all have been awesome. The old man is now home from the hospital and recovering well. He'll be back to his snarking, sarcastic self in no time.
Frankly, I can't wait to get my butt back in gear. You see, I'm a worrier by nature and actually having things to worry about like broken cars and stressful jobs and fathers with broken tickers does a number on my physical and mental health. It's no good, and things like reading, writing, and blogging get my mind off the fretting I often do about the real world and its many imperfections.
We'll be back to our regularly scheduled programming soon. Thanks for bearing with me.
