It's been a long year. Unfortunately, my blog has suffered the effects of multiple hiatuses. I know that I have lost a few followers somewhere along the lines, and that's too bad, but I'm back now and I have many great plans for 2016 in store. How many of my plans will come to fruition? I can never be too sure... I will have to undergo another, and very costly, surgery in the springtime. It will put a lag on things. : / Nevertheless, I remain hopeful that my blog will be back to normal in the new year.
