I haven't written in over a month, and it's actually not from neglect. It's more that I've had a single, overarching thing happening, and it was occupying my mind a lot. As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, things with Blake have had lots of ups and downs lately. I've been trying to decide how to write about it, and finally decided to leave the kid some dignity and just say this - our family had a very tough patch, but we've taken some steps together to fix it, and I feel like we've turned a corner.
Of course, part of the problem with taking a month off is that if I post Christmas pictures now, it'll just make me look lazy and behind the curve. Instead, here's a picture of my hand last week.
Happy New Year, friends.
