Oh Dear.

Whew! First off, I thought I’d log on and realize that it’s been almost a year since I’ve written anything. Luckily that’s not the case.

if I ever have a son

Because I can’t seem to backup my hard drive enough to not lose everything every five to seven years, I’ve decided that I’m going to put things that I want to remember onto my blog.
