I've been gone for a week. I hate to leave you hanging.
I also hate to be a total downer.
I have some junk going on at the moment that I'm not particularly ready to talk about, and I'm one of those people who isn't able to gloss over the ugly stuff and pretend like everything is OK. I'll be back as soon as I have something to share.
Make sure you miss me. I'm needy right now.
