Hello Dear Readers! I know I have been neglecting you and my writing so far this new year, but the Kujo house has been stricken with medical maladies since just a few hours into 2014. We spent the evening of the 1st, our 3rd wedding anniversary, in the waiting room of the Children's Hospital Emergency Room.
