...and there's good reasons for that.
First, my laptop decided it wanted to go to sleep for a really long time. Like, a forever long time. A shorted motherboard left me computerless for a couple weeks. I stayed in touch with the world via my smart phone and tablet, but there's no replacement for a decent computer. I now have a new lovely laptop (christened Jenny Lind).
I was also ill a couple times. I don't know if you know this, but I am a big baby when I'm sick. I had the cold from hell for a couple weeks (a resurgence of the bug that had me down just before Christmas) and a recent bout with a stomach bug (ew). Being a baby means that I pretty much put off everything when those suckers hit, and I've been playing catch-up ever since.
The good news is that I am back on my A-game (mostly) and I have lots of things that I've been working on for posting here. Stick around!
