OK, OK. I am sorry I took down the blog for a few days. I didn't mean to scare anyone. I had set it to private so that I wouldn't lose my information - as I didn't know how long my pause in posting would last.
However, some of you wrote to express your displeasure. Not only in not being able to read new posts (as random and uninteresting as they may be)... but also about not being able to access old posts with not-so-important information. You wanted it back immediately. You emailed. You called. Two of you even begged. (We need to help you get out more often or maybe buy you a subscription to a magazine or two!) :) Despite the lack of comments by most, it seems that the readership is into double digits. Dare I say, dozens!?!? I had no idea.
So, back by demand, Stremmed Out is once again here... for your enjoyment (hopefully)... after an ever-so-brief period of being "out of circulation." (I realize it was down less days than some have between their regular posts. But, the PRIVATE warning worried some folks, and I was asked to notify several that it was back up.) I can't make any promises about the posting - both in frequency and subject matter. But, I will do my best while juggling other balls in the air.
Thanks for stopping every once in a while to check in. Consider leaving a comment from time to time to let me know how you are doing. And, thanks goes out to the loved ones who have consistently done so, kept in touch, and/or keep a blog of their own.
