Apologies for my absence

My apologies. I have been MIA for some time now. To be perfectly honest, the closer it gets to things like Christmas, the anniversary of Elias’ death (March) and his birthday (April), it becomes unbelievably difficult to really function in any other way than the base requirements of life. Some days, even those are a bit of a stretch.

Over the past couple of weeks, I feel almost like I’ve been crawling out of a dark hole. It happens every year so I guess I should just get used to it. I regret that I must also ask you, dear reader, to get used to the same. I do hope that I am forgiven.

The kids had a good Christmas. Mine was better – easier, maybe? – than the last. I can only hope Jon felt similarly. Admittedly, some things we just don’t discuss. At least, not to each other.

With that said, I hope all of my readers had an enjoyable Christmas and a great New Years.
